Rheological Additive for Moderate to High Polarity Organic Systems

Conventional hectorite-based organoclay for high polarity systems, polyol, epoxy, etc.

Application

· Adhesives and mastic compounds
· Anti-corrosive paints
· Anti fouling paints
· Cosmetics
· Foundry mould paints·
· Gravure and flexographic printing inks
· Industrial finishes
· Plastisols, organosols
· Wash primers

Key Properties

· Increases viscosity
· Provides thixotropy
· Prevents pigment settling during storage
· Improves flow and leveling
· Controls sagging on vertical surfaces and penetration on porous substrates
· Prevents syneresis in thixotropic systems

Use Levels

In paints of intermediate or high polarity, typical levels range between 0.2 and 1.0 % BENTONE 27 (dry) based on total system weight. In synthetic resins (epoxy, polyester), quantities to be added are between 0.5 and 1.0 %.
