Dive into the heart of Coatex rheology modifiers 

For 50 years now, Coatex develops high level know-how, globally recognised in rheology additives !

Coatex rheology modifiers are dedicated to formulations and processes in the water-based formulations. Coatex's expertise is based on the rheology or texture of complex formulations based on water and minerals and is reflected in properties such as the stability of mineral suspensions and the storage and application properties of paints

In the range of Crayvallac additives you will find rheology and surface modifiers, as well as flow and spreading agents for solvent based formulations. Within this range, we also offer additives intended to improve the properties of paints such as matting, anti-abrasion, reduction of sliding friction, sanding, and texturing. Our Crayvallac additives are globally recognized for their characteristics of pigment dispersion, viscosity control and long term stabilization.
