Greases are used in many areas in industry. BYK manufactures organophilic phyllosilicates (organoclays) which are used as thickeners for greases, and which are responsible for the thixotropic behavior of these. Greases that are made with organophilic phyllosilicates can be used at high temperatures and they don’t melt. They show minimal bleeding and a good resistance against water.
BYK offers organoclays, which can be used in different base oil types.
