Highly purified blend of white smectite clays supplied as small flakes. Used when an inorganic, thixotropic material is desired to disperse pigments, retard settling, impart body plasticity or stabilize emulsions. It is a nonmigrating binder that delivers high yield values that enable the suspension of high-density pigments and particles.

Used to ease of dispersion, high viscosity, excellent stability and rheology.
