Sepiolsa

The Rheoplus® products are rheology modifiers in industrial applications such as coatings, fertilisers, mortars and drilling muds; as well as binders, emulsifiers and fillers in many other industrial applications such as asphalt emulsions, molecular sieves, carrier for solvents, etc.

Products

Rheoplus TA2010

Sepiolsa is the only manufacturer in Europe of rheology modifiers for the coatings industry based on attapulgite clays. Rheoplus TA2010 is a fine powder additive which generates higher viscosity and displays higher dispersibility than any other attapulgite clay in the market. It is introduced and dispersed into water easier and faster, saving a lot of energy.

Applications

  • Water based paints
  • Textured paints
  • Spray paints

Key benefits

  • Most common grade for water-based coatings
  • Easy dispersing
  • Improves thixotropy and pseudoplasticity
  • Provides excellent hiding power and good film formation
  • Prevents sagging
  • Reduces paint sensitivity to water hardness
  • Increases resistance to bacteria
  • Can be used in solvent-based systems

Rheoplus TA2015

Rheoplus TA2015 is created by Sepiolsa, the only manufacturer in Europe of rheology modifiers for the coatings industry based on attapulgite clays. It is a rheology modifier and thickener and suitable for latex and other general water-based formulations and foundry coatings.

Applications

  • Water based paints
  • Textured paints
  • Spray paints

Rheoplus® TS2020

Rheoplus® TS2020 is a powder additive from sepiolite that modifies the rheology in aqueous systems.

 

Applications

  • Mortars – Smoother termination, anti-sagging, cellulose derivative replacement, workability and lower exudation.
  • Shotcrete – Decreases rebound, improves fluidity and adherence.
  • Pumping of concrete – Avoids segregation and increases fluidity.
  • Polisher – Thickener, controls syneresis and settling.
  • Fertilisers (Suspensions) – Anti-settling.

Rheoplus® TS3010A

Rheoplus® TS3010A is an easy dispersing powder additive from high purity sepiolite that modifies the rheology of aqueous systems.

Applications

  • Tile adhesives – Smoothness, anti-slipping, partial cellulose derivative replacement, workability and better adherence.
  • Mortars – Smoother termination, anti-sagging, cellulose derivative replacement, workability and lower exudation.
  • Gypsum plasters – Decreases rebound, improves fluidity and adherence.
  • Fibercement and building boards – Improves the homogeneity of the slurry, decreases fine particle losses, improves plasticity and inter-laminar bonding. Gives smoother surface boards.
  • Emulsions – Improved surface termination, emulsifier, improved stability, pseudoplasticity and thixotropy and water resistance.
  • Sound dampening – Controls flow, decreases thermal sensitivity and processing aids.
  • Cut-back – Controls the flow properties at low and high temperature, avoiding sag and anti-settling of fillers. Surfactants are needed; in some formulations a polar activator is necessary.
  • Paints – Rheoplus® TS3010A can be used in water-based paints, paint strippers and solvent paints.
  • Coatings – Thickener, anti-settling and controls sag.
  • Polisher – Thickener, controls syneresis and settling.
  • Fertilisers (Microcrystalline) – Anti-settling and controls crystal growth.

Rheoplus® TS3010B

Rheoplus® TS3010B is a powder additive from high purity sepiolite that modifies the rheology in aqueous systems.

 

Applications

  • Shotcrete – Decreases rebound, improves fluidity and adherence.
  • Gypsum plasters – Decreases rebound, improves fluidity and adherence.
  • Sound dampening – Controls flow, decreases thermal sensitivity, processing aids.
  • Friction – Homogeneity, helps in aramid fiber opening, improves shaping, dimensional stability, mechanical strength, and stabilises friction co-efficient.
