Rheoptima™ rheology modifiers
Rheoptima is our range of rheology modifiers that thicken and stabilise particle slurries instantly, installing thixotropic and pseudoplastic properties to a processing fluid.
Fluid behaviour is important when processing as energy can be saved when mixing and the operator has greater control of the fluid once it thickens, when shear force is removed.
Final viscosity of fluids can be controlled by dosing at different treat rates. Rheoptima products are typically dosed between 0.1 – 2 w/w% of the formulation.
Our Rheoptima range includes liquid dispersion polymers, and aqueous emulsion polymers that are effective across a broad range of pH and solvent types.
Rheoptima products are typically used in the processing of complex ceramic particle slurries. We pair our Rheoptima brand with Hypermer™ products, to have total rheology control.
