INCI: Stearalkonium BentoniteProduct Categories: Suspending Agent, Thickener
CLAYTONE-MPZ V is an organoclay, obtained by organic modification of natural bentonite. It is designed to impart a high degree of gelling efficiency over a wide range of medium to high polar fluids. It is ideally suited to increase viscosity, provide thixotropic flow behaviour, and suspend pigments and particles in cosmetic and personal care applications. It may also be used as an auxiliary emulsifier in water-in-oil emulsions.
This product is vegan and may be used in all medium to high polar organic fluid systems. It is compatible with surfactants and emulsifiers. To obtain optimum results, these should be added after the CLAYTONE-MPZ V has been activated.
Suitable solvents include: Ethyl Acetate, Butyl Acetate, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Isopropyl Myristate

This product is effective in a wide range of organic fluid systems and has no processing temperature requirements. For maximum efficiency, CLAYTONE-MPZ V requires a play activator and very high shear, e.g. dissolver, rotor-stator system, or homogenizer.
It is recommended to incorporate CLAYTONE-MPZ V into the solvent phase using a concentrated pre-gel. This is the preferred option for nail lacquers in order to obtain an ultra-high gloss. In some cases, it can also be incorporated directly as a powder into the oil phase (in-situ incorporation).
