Concentrator are commonly used to increase the viscosity of materials. In addition to basic water products, these materials are also used in halal basic products.
Concentrating properties ?
In addition to increasing the viscosity of these materials, these materials also create other side effects such as proper flowability, anti-settling, anti-corrosion and uniformity of the resulting film in the product.
Types of Concentrator ?
Cellulose Concentrator (from the cellulose ether family), polyurethane and acrylate (made of metaacrylic acid copolymers and ethyl acrylate esters) are the most widely used Concentrator used in paints, resins and base water adhesives, etc.
What is silica fume ?
It is an anti-settling agent in solvent-based paints. Naturally, they are divided into two categories: hydrophilic and hydrophobic. Usually, their hydrophilic grade is used in products with non-polar solvents or low polarity, such as epoxy, polyester, polyurethane, etc. Applications of this material are to prevent cake curing and also as a filler in silicone sealants.
Concentrator application ?
These materials are used in many industries such as paints, adhesives, resins, cosmetics, food industries and so on. For example, carboxymethylcellulose acts as a viscosity controller in emulsion and latex dyes, as well as in suspension and colloidal particle stabilizers, or even in soluble dyes as a material to fill pores at perforated surfaces such as the gypsum wall surface. Are used.
Ethyl hydroxyethylcellulose, or Bromocol, is a non-ionic and water-soluble compound that increases compatibility, stability, and water retention in water-based products. High gloss, compatibility with pigment and the environment are among the features of Telose as another concentrator.
