PANGEL HV is a high efficiency rheological additive, manufactured from high purity sepiolite. Its presentation as a high porosity pellet avoids handling with powder, allowing for maximum efficiency. It is a rheological additive in the form of pellets, for a more convenient handling system.
PANGEL HV imparts excellent thixotropic and pseudoplastic properties to the systems in which it is incorporated, improving stability and spreading properties:
• At rest, it provides the system with a high consistency, which produces a suspending effect and a great resistance to settling, avoiding sedimentation.
• Under a shear stress, PANGEL HV forces the viscosity to promptly fall down, easing manual and mechanical spreading and levelling.
PANGEL HV controls system flow and consistency, ensuring optimal distribution of solvents, filler and other components.
Suspensions made with PANGEL HV are stable even at high electrolyte concentration. Its rheological behaviour is stable in a wide pH range and at high temperatures.
PANGEL HV keeps a high absorption capacity and a high degree of interaction with polymers.
