Global rheology modifiers market to reach USD 5.87 billion in 2021, growing at a CAGR of 3.8% between 2016 and 2021.
Sarasota, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/17/2018 -- Rheology modifiers are used as coating additives that control rheological characteristics of the fluids. These coating additives are the key ingredients that control physical and chemical properties and characteristics of fluids such as paints, coatings, and inks. They help in formulation and regulation of flow behavior of a variety of paints, coatings, and inks. The flow of the material is modified by improving its viscosity. Rheology modifiers can be grouped as organic and inorganic and can be either pseudo-plastic or thixotropic in nature. During brushing applications, these modifiers help to reduce spreading and spattering of paints and coatings. Rheology modifiers avoid sedimentation of the paint's pigments in the storage boxes.
