THICKENT W series is a special organic modified clay. It can be dispersed both in aqueous system and solvent system. Especially, it has excellent behavior in water-borne system. It can replace cellulose such as HEC and HPMC in water-borne coatings, construction mortar, ceramics.

Typical Properties:

*Excellent water retention (Superior water retention to HEC and HPMC).

*Wide viscosity range (Cover all viscosity range of cellulose).

*Fine temperature tolerance. It can disperse in cold water or in hot water.

*High adhesion and strengthening, it can be used as adhesive agent in printing and dyeing in textile industry.

*High thixotropy.

*THICKENT W has good coordination with cellulose; it can be used together with HEC or HPMC. Normally, the ratio of THICKENT W and cellulose is 80%:20%.

  1. Cement-based mortar
  • THICKENT Whas good thickening performance in mortar can improve mortar’s

rheology. With THICKENT W, mortar is more slippy and easier for workers to coat on wall. It can prolong construction time of mortar, and create higher working efficiency. It is helpful for mortar to form high intension during solidification

  1. Putty
  • THICKENT Whas good water-retention performance in putty, and it can      prolong construction time of putty and lift construction efficiency. THICKENT W has anti-skinning performance and is helpful for putty to have high intension during solidification.
  1. Thermal insulation mortar (mainly for Bonding mortar and overlay mortar)

◆  With its high water-retention, THICKENT W can prolong construction time of

mortar and create higher working efficiency. It gives fine surface and slippery feeling of the mortar and improves surface quality by its shrinkability and anticracking. It is

helpful for mortar to form high intension during solidification. And improve bond strength.

  1. Interface treatment binder
  • THICKENTW is good thickening agent for surface treatment binder. It can                  increase tensile strength and anti-shear strength, and make the binder to have better adhesion and binding strength.
  1. Ceramic tile

◆   THICKENT W can be used in ceramic tile as water retention agent, adhesive. With its perfect water retention and adhesion, ceramic tile can be strength enough to avoid crack and easier to be constructed.

6    Emulsion coatings and other water-borne paint.

◆ With its high thickening and thixotropy, it can be used to replace HEC in Emulsion coatings and other water-borne paint as rheological additive, film-forming agent, adhesive, emulsifier and stabilizer, it also can be used together with HEC in a proper ratio.

7    Printing and dyeing in textile.

◆ Used as adhesive.
