Rheology Modifier Clays

BS-1C-FF is an organo-clay for solvent-based systems of low to medium polarity.

Advantages of Smecton Clays

List hereunder are some of the benefits of Smecton Clays offered by Agile Nobel:
  • ☆ High gelling efficiency over low and medium polarity organic liquids
  • ☆ High viscosity and exceptional thickening property for different temperatures
  • ☆ Imparts particle suspension and prevents hard settling of pigment and fillers
  • ☆ Ideal thixotropy and anti-sediment property
  • ☆ Exerts strong film reinforce action in organic binder systems

Typical Applications

An organo-clay, Smecton is used for multitude of applications, including –
  • Adhesives and Sealants
  • Anti-Corrosion Paints
  • Container Paints
  • Bituminous Paints
  • Printing Inks
  • Lubricating grease


BS-1C-FF belongs to the conventional type of organo-clay group, which requires mechanical energy, shear forces applied with a good dispersion equipment, and a chemical (polar) activator to reach the proper level of delamination of the organo-clay particles. Polar Activator: Dosage of polar activator (such as 95%ethanol, 95%methanol, 95%acetone or propylene carbonate) is 30%-50% by weight of BS-1C-FF. It is always recommended to determine the proper level of addition by experiment. Either defect or excess of chemical activator would result in poorer viscosity development.

Recommended Levels

The amount of BS-1C-FF rheology modifier required depends upon the type of organic system and the degree of thickening or other properties desired. Addition levels are typically between 0.50-2.0percent by weight of the total system.
