ADDEZ®128 thickener is a highly-purified, synthetic layer clay, with mutual performance to various types of formulations It will form highly viscosity and excellent thixotropic, heat stable, clear gels when dispersed in water at a 1-3% solids level.ADDEZ®128 can be easily dispersed under shear mixing equipment and has a very high surface area. It provides synergistic viscosity and suspension properties .
ADDEZ®128 is free of crystalline silica and other impurities.

Incorporation When ADDEZ®128 is added to water ,the dispersing shear forces is necessary to help the system to establish a stable rheological gel sturcture. After sixty minutes suitable dispersing a clear and higher viscosity gellation established.If the water been heated to 60 C-80 C the full dispersing time will be 5 –10 Min. Use levels of ADDEZ®128 will be from 0.2-3.0% by weight of the formulation.
