BK-286 is an organoclay (tetraallkyl ammonium bentonite) for solvent-based systems
of low to medium polarity.
☆ High gelling efficiency over low to medium polarity organic liquids.
☆ Easy of incorporation. No need for polar activator or making pregel.
☆ Consistent in rheology and thixotropy development.
☆ Excellent sag resistance and high viscosity.
☆ Produce gel with light color and high transparency.
☆ Easy of dispersion.
2. Typical Properties:
|Fineness through 200 mesh||Loss on Ignition|
( @1000ºC )
|Light White||Free Flowing Powder||1.6g/cm3||≤3.5%||≥98%||≤40%|
3. Typical Applications:
|Sealing material|| |
BK-286 belongs to the unconventional type of organoclays group, being an easy-to-disperse,
self-activated organoclay, BK-286 does not require a chemical (polar) activator to reach the
proper level of delamination of the organoclay platelet stacks.
5. Recommended Levels:
The amount of BK-286 rheology modifier required depends upon the type of organic system
and the degree of thickening or other properties desired. Addition levels are typically between
0.2%-2.0% based on the total formulation weight.
