Rheology modifiers are often referred to as thickeners and, whilst increasing the apparent viscosity will confer a feeling of "quality" to the formulation, this is only one aspect of rheological control. The product itself can be Newtonian or pseudoplastic, thixotropic, be a ringing gel or a stringy flowable liquid.

A suspending agent helps reduce the sedimentation rate of particles in suspension. these are insoluble particles that are dispersed in a liquid vehicle. The suspending agent works by increasing the viscosity of the liquid vehicle, and thereby slowing down settling in accordance with Stokes Law.
