INCORPORATION

CATONE CLAY in low polarity organic systems require high speed shear and the addition of a predetermined chemical activator(polar additive)for complete dispersion and optimum gelation (formation of a gel structure)

CATONE CLAY can be introduced effectively
1)As a dry powder for in-situ gelation
2)Predispersed in the resin/solvent premix with the activator(optimized)

3)As an optimized pregell of higher concentration as required or for post correction of the flow properties of the paint with adequate shear.

RECOMMENDED LEVELS
The level of CATONE CLAY depends on the individual system in which it is to be used.For the house paints and industrial paints,typical levels of additionals are 0.2% to 0.8% for a road paints 0.6% to 1% based on the total system weight in synthetic resin system,0.5% to 1.5% are recommended.
