LAPONITE-XLS XR is a synthetic layered silicate of low heavy metal content, incorporating an inorganic polyphosphate dispersing agent. It hydrates and swells in water to give clear and colourless colloidal dispersions of low viscosity known as sols. This product is recommended for incorporation into formulations containing low levels of free water, such as skin wash products, at 10% concentration in deionized water, the dispersion will remain free-flowing for over 24 hours. The unique shear thinning and thixotropic rheology of LAPONITE-XLS XR enhances stability of formulations and keeps particles, pigments, or solid actives suspended. This product has been sterilized by gamma irradiation.

Processing Instructions

The recommended laboratory mixing equipment is a mechanical stirrer fitter with a propeller blade.

Add the product to deionized water (at 15 – 25°C) in a steady stream over 10 – 30 seconds with rapid agitation. Mixer speed should be high enough to make a vortex that will cause the stream of LAPONITE powder to wet out into the water without the creation of clumps. Mixing should be continued for up to 20 minutes. When dispersion is complete, this product produces a clear, colourless, and low viscosity pre-mix, which can be stored for several days.

Viscosity development will occur instantaneously when the pre-mix is combined with other formulation components. The pre-mix can be affected by temperature, electrolytes, or pH level. Recommended agents are citric acid, lactic acid, or sodium dihydrogen phosphate.

LAPONITE-XLS XR is also effective for use in hard water.
