Rheology Additives: Increasing viscosity - Solvent-borne/ solvent-free systems - Mixed Mineral Technology



Phyllosilicates are found in platelet stacks. To ensure sufficient effectiveness, the platelets must be separated by means of shearing. The use of Mixed Mineral Technology (MMT) minimizes this energy input. Through the patented technology, particles can be incorporated in the systems much easier and with significantly lower shear forces, resulting in shorter processing times, greater efficiency, better storage stability and more favorable rheology profiles.
