BK-388
Products Specifications:
BK®-388 is an organoclay (tetraallkyl ammonium bentonite) for solvent-based systems of low,medium and high polarity.
 
1.      Advantages:
 
High gelling efficiency over low, medium and high polarity organic liquids.
Produce reproducible thixotropic consistency over a wide temperature range.
High viscosity and excellent thickening property over a wide temperature range.
Imparts particle suspension, preventing hard settling of pigment and fillers.
Exerts strong film reinforce action in organic binder systems.
High purity:high percentage of montmorillonite,free cristobalite <1%.
High efficiency:save 30%dosage compared with ordinary grades.
Good dispersion:self-activated in medium/high polar system.Its fineness can reach 10μ or even less.

4.      Incorporations:
 
BK®-388 belongs to the unconventional type of organoclays group, being an easy-to-disperse, self-activated organoclay, BK®-388 does not require a chemical (polar) activator to reach the proper level of delamination of the organoclay platelet stacks. 
BK®-388 can be added at any point in the manufacturing process. If addition is made with polar activator or after grinding,better performance can be expected.
Polar Activator: Dosage of polar activator( such as propylene carbonate, 95%ethanol , acetone or 95% methanol) is 20%-30% by weight of BK®-388.
It is always recommended to determine the proper level of addition by experiment. Either defect or excess of chemical activator would result
in poorer viscosity development.
 
 
5.      Recommended Levels:
 
The amount of BK®-388 rheological additive required depends upon the type of organic system and the degree of thickening or other properties desired. Addition levels are typically between 0.2%-0.8% based on the total formulation weight.
