Hectorite clay for suspension control for waterborne systems

Key Properties

BENTONE EW NA rheological additive
Rheological properties
· provides thermostable aqueous phase viscosity control
· imparts thixotropy
Application performance
· enhances texturing and stippling effects
· improves workability / application of plasters
· no throwing power loss in electrostatic systems
· promotes fast water release
System stability
· electrolyte emulsions
· stabilises emulsions
· provides good stability in electrostatic coating baths
· prevents hard settlement of pigments / fillers
· reduces syneresis
· minimises floating / flooding of pigments
Easy to use
· can be incorporated as powder or as an aqueous 3 - 4 wt % (EW solids) pregel
