Celeritas Chemicals Announces New Grades of High-Performance Organoclays for Paint and Coatings
Celeritas Chemicals, a specialty chemicals and materials supplier based in Southlake, TX, has introduced 3 new high-performance grades of organophilic clays specifically designed for the paint and coatings industry.
Organoclays are popular viscosity modifiers for paints and resins requiring thixotropic flow. Smectite-
CELCHEM 31743-09, 31744-09 and 31745-09 are organoclays (tetraallkyl ammonium bentonite) for solvent-based systems of low to medium polarity. CELCHEM Organoclays offer the following advantages for paint and coatings formulators
• High gelling efficiency over low to medium polarity organic liquids
• Easy incorporation.
• Consistent in rheology and thixotropy development
• Excellent sag resistance and control of viscosity
• Produce gel with light color and high transparency
CELCHEM 31743-09, 31744-09 and 31745-09 belong to the unconventional type of organoclays group, being easy-to-disperse, self-activated organoclays. They typically do not require a chemical (polar) activator to reach the proper level of delamination of the organoclay platelet stacks. However, certain applications may benefit from the addition of a polar activator to achieve the desired viscosity.
Typical applications include:
Acrylic paint Chlorinated rubber paints Solvent epoxy paint
Wooden paint Nitro lacquer Varnish
Adhesive Primer paint Zinc-rich paint
Alkyd paint Sealants Industrial paint
Inks(Mineral oil) Polyester paint Road paint
Inks(Nitro) Anti-corrosion paint Lubricating grease
As an additional benefit, production and supply chain efficiencies allow Celeritas Chemicals to offer these products at significant cost savings.
Celeritas Chemicals develops and markets specialty chemicals providing alternative sources of raw materials for multiple industries and markets.
