LAPONITE-EP

Highly shear thinning layered silicate rheological additive with organic modification for extra performance in difficult-to-thicken water-borne systems.
Used in surface coatings, household products and general and industrial applications. Recommended for systems containing higher levels of electrolyte.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
LAPONITE-RD

Highly shear thinning layered silicate rheological additive for water-borne systems.
Used in surface coatings, household products and general and industrial applications. Also used to stabilize emulsions.
Synergistic benefits are developed when formulated in combinations with polymer based co-thickeners.

Compliant with FDA and/or EU food contact regulations. 
LAPONITE-S 482

Highly shear thinning layered silicate rheological additive for water-borne systems.
Used in highly filled surface coatings and general applications. Synergistic benefits when used in combinations with polymer based co-thickeners.
Forms low viscosity pre-mixes in water, which thicken on addition to formulations.

LAPONITE-SL 25

Ready-for-use concentrated aqueous dispersion of layered silicate rheological additive for water-borne systems.
Used in highly filled surface coatings. Synergistic benefits when used in combinations with polymer based co-thickeners.
Forms low viscosity pre-mixes in water, which thicken on addition to formulations.
