We offer comprehensive range of mineral based additive for rheology modifications and also for fire retardancy of polymeric materials.
Our additives for rheology control and adjustment are used for both solvent and aqueous systems to generate thixotropic flow behaviour and finds use in many applications.
Our organoclays range based on bentonite are well used in a number of low to high polar systems . With our attapulgite based clays, Min-U-Gel® and Acti-Gel 208® from Active Minerals Int.LLC formulators are able to specifically design their products flow behaviour. The Min-U-Gel® offers stable, reliable and low-cost gelling in many applications. The Acti-Gel 208® is a unique patented rheology product. The magnesium aluminium silicate is offering an excellent stability and workability for water based products within many fields, such as concrete, paint, adhesives and many more.
For WB systems we offer acrylic thickeners from Scott Bader, Texipol and Texicryl. The product range include alkali swellable emulsion thickeners as well as inverse emulsion thickeners.
LKAB Minerals advanced natural fire retardant mineral filler, Ultracarb is environmentally preferable to chemically produced alternatives. UltraCarb is a halogen free fire retardant produced from LKAB natural deposits containing two minerals: hydromagnesite and huntite. This unique mineral combination is known as HMH. UltraCarb has a unique 3-stage fire retardant mechanism. It is used in a wide range of polymers such as polyethylene, polypropylene and PVC.In recognition of this, has developed special in-house beneficiation and processing techniques and focuses on producing highly consistent and well defined products.
