Rheology is a central factor in the relationship between consumers and cleaning products. As one of the main sensorial attributes of a product, it is an essential cue in the consumer’s perception of quality and performance.

Clariant knows this and has developed the Hostagel® line of rheology modifiers accordingly. The features and benefits of each of the six Hostagel® products have been organized so you can see at a glance which modifier is the right one for your needs.

If you would like support in regard to rheology modification, do not hesitate to contact us.
