Ropella Industry Expertise

Growing population and construction increase demand, but environmental regulation and market changes now often call for additives that are water-borne and more health-friendly. Costly raw materials also challenge the industry, which is eager for innovative, efficient additives that provide faster dry time, offer heat resistance and improve flow characteristics, to name three examples.

Rheology, biocides, driers and foam control agents are just a few of the many factors changing the industry. The search for multi-tasking additives cuts across all segments of the global paints and coatings industry, whether acrylic, polyurethane, nano, automotive, marine, consumer durable or OEM.
