LAPONITE®-SL 25 is a ready-for-use concentrated aqueous dispersion of layered silicate rheological additive for water-borne systems. It is used in highly filled surface coatings. It has synergistic benefits when used in combinations with polymer based co-thickeners. This product forms low viscosity pre-mixes in water, which thicken on addition to formulations.
