Thickeners and Hydrotropes

Every country and every culture relates the quality of a product with its final appearance, mainly with its viscosity and transparency. In Latin America, high viscosity is directly related to high quality, whereas in Europe, low viscosity is closely related to being easy to dose.

Therefore, having products that can modify the rheology, such as the Hostagel® line, or the solubility, such as the Hostaphat®, Genapur® and Genapol® BA lines, of a formulation is of fundamental importance for every formulator in the Industrial & Home Care business.
