BYK Opibent® 1248 Layered Silicate
Categories: Ceramic; Clay

Material Notes: Description: Optibent® 1248 is an activated layered silicate product and has been developed for mineral based stuccos (final coatings, textural coatings, skim coats). It shows a marked thixotropic thickening effect and incorporates a yield value into the system. This yield value results in excellent anti-sagging and anti-settling (storage stability) properties as well as in smoother workability properties during application. Due to its modification Optibent® 1248 gives an extension of processing time and more open time, especially in white cement containing systems.
