Organoclay greases are characterised by their smooth texture and exceptional heat resistance, owing to the fact that the thickener remains stable and does not melt.
We offer a comprehensive selection of organophilic clays, including BENTONE® and BARAGEL®, which serve as effective thickeners for the lubrication industry. These organophilic clays can be seamlessly incorporated into a variety of systems, including petroleum oils, vegetable oils, silicone fluids, synthetic oils, and glycols.
BARAGEL® 3000, in particular, is a self-activated organoclay that eliminates the need for polar activators to achieve full dispersion. This not only simplifies the manufacturing process but also reduces batch cycle times by eliminating the step of adding a polar dispersant.
For greases conforming to FDA or similar authority requirements, water and food-grade ethanol are recommended as polar activators.
