To meet these demands, organic thixotropes based on diamideor castor waxes are often used. This class of rheology modifiers typically displays superior properties in comparison to other additive classes such as organoclays and fumed silica. The new generation of organic thixotropes has been developed to provide excellent rheology with higher efficiency. These products meet customer needs for easier processing and incorporation of raw materials. Further benefits are lower activation temperatures and the possibility of formulating high-solid and solvent-free systems. Conventional organic thixotropes have specific incorporation and activation requirements. Optimum performance requires elevated temperatures combined ...
