Technical Datasheet | Supplied by Laviosa Minerals
LAVIOSA VISCOGEL™ B3 by Laviosa Minerals is an economic, bentonite clay organically modified with a quaternary alkyl ammonium compound. Acts as a rheology modifier for solvent-borne systems of low to medium polarity. It requires mechanical energy, shear forces applied with a good dispersion equipment, and a chemical (polar) activator to reach the proper level of delamination of the organobentonite platelet stacks. Possesses thixotropic effect, sag control and prevents pigments from long-term storage settling. Provides good performance in solvents like aliphatic mineral spirits and aromatics. Shows compatibility with low polarity binders like alkyds, terpenes and petroleum derivatives. Used in traffic paints, primers and asphalt coatings. Recommended dosage level to provide good antisettling properties to paints is 0.3% - 0.8%, for primers is 0.5% - 1.0%, and for applications with strong anti-sagging properties is up to 3.0%. The shelf life of LAVIOSA VISCOGEL™ B3 is 36 months.
