Anti-settling Agents Market: Overview
The functional role of rheology modifiers for emulsion and paint formulations cannot be overestimated in the paint and coating industries for meeting end-user demands. They are popularly used for oil and water based paint formulations. The anti-settling agents market has thus seen steady rise in demand coming paint and pigment dispersion manufacturers. Anti-settling agents are characterized by high surface activity, which helps heavy pigments to remain in suspension, thereby preventing sedimentation of pigments in paints during transportation and long term storage. Key formulations used in making these agents are polyvinyl acetate, conventional polyamide, and fume silica. Many of these agents are also used as dispersants.
Fumed silica-based anti-settling agents are gaining traction among paint and coating formulators for distinct functional attributes, notably retaining film stability and reduce wetting. Another popular product category is organic bentonite.
