Colloidal attapulgite powder for paint coating thickener thixotropic agent Inorganic Gel Thickening Agent

Product introduction

Attapulgite high viscosity agent / suspending agent / thixotropic agent is made of colloidal attapulgite clay ore as raw material, finely processed with mineral processing, crushing, activation soaking, pressing, drying and grinding procedure. This product has high cohesiveness, excellent suspension and colloidal thixotropy,  and strong adhesion, good suspension, wear resistance, high temperature resistance, fire resistance and corrosion resistance properties,which is inert and stable in the working medium and is not easy to collapse and deform after molding. Widely used in pellet feed, granular fertilizer, mineral desiccant, molecular sieve and building board, and also used as suspending agent and thickener of medium and high grade coatings.



1. High viscosity, strong adsorption, strong adhesion, non-toxic, pollution-free, green environmental protection. Used in mineral wool sound-absorbing board (ceiling), resulting the functions of decoration, sound absorption, heat preservation, fire prevention, energy conservation, sterilization and air purification.

2. Good suspension, thickening, leveling and colloidal properties, widely applied in paint, putty, ink and other industries.

3. Inert and does not react with molecular sieve. Using it as molecular sieve adhesive can reduce the abrasion of molecular sieve, improve the strength, improve the appearance, and improve the product quality

4. High water absorption value, sound insulation, heat preservation, strong adhesion and good adsorption properties. Widely used as the binder and filler of insulating glass desiccant and other desiccants.

5. Light weight, good suspension, strong adsorption properties. Applied in catalyst carrier, medicine carrier and suspending agent of waterborne coating, liquid fertilizer, liquid pesticide and seed coating agent.

6. Salt resistance, not affected

High viscosity of attapulgite clay introduction:

Attapulgite is a kind of crystalloid hydrous magnesium-aluminum silicate mineral,which has very good colloidal properties such as: specific dispersity, high temperature endurance, salt and alkali resistance, and also high adsorbing and de-coloring capabilities. Furthermore, Attapulgite has certain plastic and adhesive characters.

High viscosity of attapulgite clay is produced from attapulgite raw clay after the beneficiation,crushing,immersion,extrusion,stoving,grinding and grading.It is a kind of high viscosity product that depend on the scientific formula and special processing technology.
