The choice of the right additives is a critical step in designing water-borne adhesives & sealants. Rheology modifiers and dispersants will enable to fine-tune the body and the structure , the gunnability and ease of application while keeping an excellent slump resistance without impacting ageing, mechnical properties and weatherability.
Coatex offers a robust portfolio of solutions, to improve paint performance across the entire value chain:
- Production and processing
- Final application and performance
- Costs management
