CP-EZ is a kind of organo clay rheological additive. Especially it is recommended to be applied in medium polarity and high polarity system including aromatic and aliphatic solvent.
Composition Organic derivative of a montmorillonite clay
Appearance Fine powder, light yellow
Moisture content (105℃,2hr) ≤3.5%
Loss on ignition (1000℃) 35%-37%
Bulk density 0.40~0.60g/cm3
Fineness (<74μm, %) ≥99%
Dispersion fineness (μm) ≤10
CP-EZ is used in the following applications:
Paints including decorative paint, industrial paint
Oil drilling mud
CP-EZ can be added directly in powder under high shear condition. The addition is recommended to be before grinding procedure to get the best effectiveness. Addition level is commonly 0.2%~1.0%. In low polarity system such as mineral spirit, if polar activator is added, better efficiency can be achieved.
Dosage of polar activator is suggested to be 10%-20% of CP-EZ by weigh
