Description: Rheological additive


Garamite rheological additives are a proprietary blend of minerals that have been "organically modified" for use in applications using polymer resins such as unsaturated polyesters, epoxies, and vinyl esters. Due to their unique function, Garamite additives are offered as alternatives to other commonly used rheology modifiers in laminating and thermoset composite systems. The use of Garamite additives is being explored in other solvent-based systems due to the unique rheology and performance that Garamite additives can provide.

Typecodes Additives for Ceramic Glazes
Materials that are added to glazes to impart physical working properties and usually burn away during firing. In industry all glazes, inks and engobes have additives, they are considered essential to control of cohesion, adhesion, suspension, dry hardness, surface leveling, rheology, speed-of-drying, etc. Among potters, it is common for glazes to have zero additives.
