The organoclay polar activator can better promote the effect of organoclay in use, so that its dispersibility, thixotropy, thickening, and suspension can achieve the best effect. 

Suggested polar activators are:

Organoclay Polar Activator % weight based on

Organoclay CP-150 / CP-982 

Methanol/water (95/5%) 35
Ethanol/water (95/5%) 52
Propylene Carbonate/water


Acetone   61
  • Remarks :Glycol ether is another activator we recommend.

OrganoClay is a modified clay mineral designed for use as a Thixotropic Agent and suspension agent media in the process. When used alone, The formulation needs to add some organoclay activator. 

Organoclay Polar activator  | Organophilic bentonite, generally, dispersing and gelling are supported by the polar activator. The polar activator can form a hydrogen bridge bond between organoclays platelets, thereby increasing cross-linking and viscosity.

Dispersion and activation of organoclay:

Important note:

  • Suitable dosage of the activator is very important to the dispersion of organoclays and stability
  • system. Too much polar activator will reduce swelling once again and viscosity would drop down again. See the following chart 1
  • Polar activator should be added only after the addition of organoclays, and organoclays has been fully wetted and dispersed
  • For poor wetting resin systems(epoxy, polyester, short-oil alkyd, acrylic resin, etc.) organoclay should be used in combination with a surfactant
  • Typical viscosity curve of a system with organoclay. See the following chart 2

Organoclay CP-982, CP-150 belong to the conventional type of organoclay group, which requires mechanical energy, shear forces applied with a goods dispersion equipment, and an ORGANOCLAY polar activator to reach the proper level of delamination of the organoclay platelet stacks.
Polar Activator: The dosage of organoclay polar activator ( such as propylene carbonate, 95% ethanol, acetone, or 95% methanol) is 30%-50% by weight of ours organoclay.
