Coatings

We are the sole South African agents for Arbothix PE100 and Sylothix 51.

Certain gels or fluids that are thick, or viscous, under static conditions will flow (become thin, less viscous) when shaken, stirred or otherwise stressed. When allowed to rest, they then will return back to the original viscous state. This thixotropic property aids in helping a substance to flow once stirred or agitated.

Applications

These efficient thixotropes are used in the Epoxy, Paint, Bitumen, Concrete and Polyurethane industries.

Also used in the manufacture of tile cement and wall fillers.
