Synthetic clay filler for plastic and rubber products. Help improved many characteristics such as viscosity, transparency, heat resistance, thixotropy, intercalation and solubility.
Small crystal size and lamellar structure of smectite clays are responsible for several unique properties, including a large chemically active surface area, a high cation exchange capacity and the ability to form organic and inorganic interlayer complexes.
Hydrothermal processes have been developed to prepare pure smectite clays: LUCENTITE. The resulting product has excellent brightness, transparency and rheological properties, and which enables it to be used for a wide variety of purposes such as cosmetics, medicines and gelling agents of water soluble paints. It also has a constant quality and low impurity content.
Smectite clay dispersions have high viscosity and thixotropic property, and maintain thoses properties up to the boiling-point of solvents.
