GARAMITE® 1958

Technical DataSheet | Supplied by Byk (Altana Group)

Rheological additive. Provides ease of dispersion, viscosity-, gel time- and shear stability. Prevents syneresis, settling, drainage/sag. Recommended for use in unsaturated polyester resins such as orthophthalic, isophthalic, DCPD and PET resins. For epoxy and vinyl ester systems, the recommended incorporation is done under moderate to high shear. The addition of additive to the resin at a 1-6 % loading level may be required to achieve maximum efficiency during dispersion. For unsaturated polyester resins, the recommended method of incorporation for maximum efficiency is to add GARAMITE 1958 directly into the styrene at 10-15 % solids. Styrene wets and disperses the additive with only low shear agitation.
