BYK Bentolite® L10 Bentonite
Categories: Ceramic; Clay

Material Notes: Bentolite L10 is produced from natural, colloidal aluminum silicate by a unique process. The high purity and consistent viscosity of Bentolite L10 are made possible by our selective mining and rigid process control from the crude ore to the finished product. Bentolite L10 is thixotropic in nature. It is most beneficial when it is used in combination with other rheological additives to produce the desired rheological properties in a system. Suitable cothickeners include cellulosics, alkali swellables, and urethane thickeners Bentolite L10 is a very economical thixotrope. Bentolite L10 contributes to excellent application and film formation properties.

Benefits of Using Bentolite L10:

  • Economical
  • Heat Stable
  • Chemical Stability With Co-Solvents
  • Shear Tolerant
  • Enzyme-Proof
  • Rapid Shear Recovery
  • Low High Shear Viscosity
  • Little Impact on Final Viscosity
  • Wide Ph Range Tolerance (4-12)
