Hectorite Organoclay as drilling fluid chemicals is a high-performance bentonite performance minerals. It is also called bentonite organoclay in a variety of applications.
Hectorite Organoclay also widely used for paints, Grease,Lubricant,inks and oil drilling field.
Application of Hectorite Organoclay
1, Hectorite Organoclay as oilfield chemical for oil drilling mud
Organophilic Clay is an oilfield chemical, It is an easy dispersing, rapid yielding organoclay that exhibits high performance efficiency in diesel oil, crude oil, Low BTEX base oil, mineral oil and synthetic containing base fluid formulation. It is stable and has good suspension and thixotropic features.
Bentonite Organoclay is a wet process improved viscosifier and gelling agent.
Disperses easily in less time with less shear
High performance viscosifier for low aromatic, all mineral oil and synthetic base fluids
Cost- effectively builds viscosity and yield point
Aids control of fluid loss to the formation
Increases emulsion stability
Suspends weighting materials and other solids
Confers stability at the pressure and temperature 108Pa and 230℃
2, Hectorite Organoclay for water borne paints
Bentonite Organoclay as a water based organoclay use for water borne paints and water borne coatings. So bentonite Organoclay as an inorganic rheology modifier are widely used in water paints and water coatings.
With specific modification, organoclay bentonite could provide excellent stability and thixotropy combined with efficient low-shear viscosity build as well as anti-sag stability flow characteristics.
Advantages of bentonite organoclay
High gelling efficiency over low, medium and high polarity organic liquids,
Produce reproducible thixotropic consistency over a wide temperature range.
High viscosity and excellent thickening property over a wide temperature range.
Imparts particle suspension, preventing hard settling of pigment and fillers.
Exerts strong film reinforce action inorganic binder systems.
Fineness through 200 mesh
Loss on Ignition( @1000℃ )
Free Flowing Powder
3, Hectorite Organoclay for solvent based paints,coatings.
In solvent based paints,coatings, organo clay modified montmorillonite, designed especially for use in solvent based system including intermediate and low polarity range organic liquid.
