White magnesium-rich surface modified sodium hectorite clay highly purified to exhibit rheology four to five times more efficient than purified bentonite.

Hectabrite AW is a flake material which exhibits excellent emulsification, thickening and suspension properties at low solids levels. It is mostly used in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and personal care products.

Hectabrite DP is a free flowing powder. Used as a binder and plasticizer if ceramic bodies. In glazes it reduces settling.
