BYK Garamite® 7303 Thickening Additives
Categories: Ceramic; Clay; Other Engineering Material; Additive/Filler for Polymer

Material Notes: Garamite® 7303 was developed using Southern Clay Products’ patented Mixed Mineral Thixotrope (MMT) technology. The MMT technology provides performance benefits which are not possible with traditional organoclay additives. Traditional organoclays are very hard to disperse, typically requiring both very high shear mixing and a polar activator to help delaminate the aggregates of clay platelets. Due to the multiple particle morphologies of Garamite® 7303, the powder disperses very easily into oils or solvents with only moderate shear. Garamite® 7303 exhibits a very unique rheology profile compared to other thickening additives. Very high low-shear viscosity can be achieved by incorporating Garamite® 7303 into formulations which results in outstanding ant-settling and anti-syneresis properties. However, when a shear force is applied, the viscosity is quickly reduced which allows for excellent application properties. Garamite® 7303 is most suited for low to medium polarity systems.
