Benton 34 or bentonite is a white powder with a mild, non-flammable odor and a natural derivative of bentonite precipitate (an organic derivative of bentonite clay) which is used as a rheological additive (base thickener) of bentonite for non-polar solvent base systems ( Used with low polarity to medium polarity.
Benefits and Features of Benton 34?
This material is used to create and maintain the properties of thixotropy during the application of coatings, in order to increase the concentration (reduce viscosity), increase the lubrication (lubrication and resistance to very high temperatures in soils with organic matter) and to prevent sedimentation Pigments and fillers are stored in paint over time and used during storage as well as to stabilize the structure of liquids.
Benton 34 application?
Due to its very useful properties in various industries and in the production of various products, for example in the production of traffic paints, in the production of adhesives, in anti-corrosion paints, car paints, as lubricants in the field of oil and extraction, In the production of printing inks, waxes, in bituminous compositions and coatings, metal coil coatings, in oil, oil and mining industries, in solvent and hygienic solvent base products, in stabilizing emulsion composition, in producing domestic colors and Exterior of the building, in immersion coatings, industrial coatings and coil coatings, as an additive in mixtures of sludge or soils of oil well drilling sites, in internal solvent base paints and external solvent base paints, in sealant and … is used.
Although this substance is not dangerous for the environment and humans, it is better to use personal protective equipment such as masks, goggles when wearing it for a long time due to its harmful effects on the respiratory tract and its irritations to the skin and eyes. Wear safety gloves and work clothes. It is also non-flammable and emits ash and carbon dioxide in the event of a fire, which may cause suffocation and poisoning.
