Mineral rheological additive for aqueous systems
PANGEL AD is a high efficiency rheological additive, manufactured from high purity sepiolite.
It is a high-density powder rheological additive for a more convenient use.
PANGEL AD imparts excellent thixotropic and pseudoplastic properties to the systems it is incorporated to, improving stability and spreading properties:
- At rest, it provides the system with a high consistency, which produces a suspending effect and a great resistance to settling, avoiding sedimentation.
- Under a shear stress, PANGEL AD forces the viscosity to promptly fall down, easing manual and mechanical spreading and levelling.
PANGEL AD controls system flow and consistency, ensuring optimal distribution of solvents, fillers and other components.
Suspensions made with PANGEL AD are stable even at high electrolyte concentration. Its rheological behaviour is stable in a wide pH range and at high temperatures.
PANGEL AD keeps a high absorption capacity and a high degree of interaction with polymers.
