LAVIOTHIX® DP1 s a rheological additive that gives stability and viscosity control., It can be incorporated as aqueous pre-gel at 10- 12 wt% pregel LAVIOTHIX® DP1 will hydrate when added to water. To obtain maximum hydration and optimum performance in the shortest time, we suggest following incorporation procedures: 1. Slowly add LAVIOTHIX® DP1 and increase shear rate to maximum amount which may be tolerated in the mixing container. Incorporates more quickly in warm water. However, do not allow water temperature to rise above 50° C prior to full hydration. Once hydration has occurred, there is no temperature limitation for LAVIOTHIX® DP1 2. Continue to disperse until a constant viscosity is reached (15-30 min) 3. Add other formula ingredients in appropriate order
Laviothix is used to provide a good suspensive effect and to give thixotropic properties to the system.
LAVIOTHIX® DP1 is product of inorganic originbased on clay, with high performances andefficiency, specific for water borne formulationsthat gives great pseudoplastic behaviour andtixotropy.
