DARVAN dispersing agents are low foaming dispersants for mineral pigment slurries.Pitch Control Agent
DARVAN Dispersing Agents
DARVAN 1 Spray Dried
DARVAN 1 Spray Dried is a sodium salt of polymerized alkyl naphthalene sulfonic acids that perform as a highly effective dispersing agent for mineral pigments in a water.
DARVAN 7-N is a low foaming sodium polymethacrylate dispersing agent highly effective in dispersing mineral pigments in a water.
DARVAN 7-N and DARVAN 7-NS Dispersing Agents
DARVAN 670 is a sodium salt of polynaphthelene sulfonic acids. It prevents settling and controls viscosity of mineral pigment slurries.
DARVAN 811 is a sodium polyacrylate dispersing agent. It is a highly effective dispersant for high solids mineral pigment slurries such as TiO2, calcium carbonate or kaolin clay.
Filler Minerals from Vanderbilt Minerals, LLC.Thixotropes
BILT-PLATES 156 kaolin clay is an effective pitch control agent. It consists of an extremely fine particle size having high surface area platy particles. Its surfaces absorb soluble or dispersed depositable chemicals (pitch) from pulp slurries.
VEEGUM / VAN GEL Brochure
VAN GEL B
VAN GEL B and VEEGUM T are industrial grades of magnesium aluminum silicate (smectite clay). These clays impart thixotropic properties with good anti-settling characteristics to paper coatings. These thixotropes are bacterial and enzymatic resistant.
VANZAN D is an anionic polysaccharide (xanthan gum) produced from fermentation of carbohydrates by the microrganism xanthomormas campestris. It is supplied as a creamy-white powder which gives pseudoplastic colloidal solutions in water and is insoluble in most organic liquids. VANZAN has exceptional thickening, suspending and stablizing properties in the presence of acids, bases and salts, and at elevated temperatures. Two grades of VANZAN are available for paper coating applications: VANZAN and VANZAN D. The latter is specifically treated to promote its easy dispersion and accelerated hydration when the pH is increased to >7.
