LAVIOTHIX and LAVIOKOLL is a range of clay-based rheological additives suitable for water-borne coatings and construction systems: these products are inorganic, based on a selected, purified and activated clay with a very high montmorillonite content and a high specific surface area. They provide enhanced thickening, thixotropic and antisettling properties, preventing sedimentation of suspended particles; also sag control and storage stability are increased.
LAVIOTHIX and LAVIOKOLL range are suitable for use in all mineral-based systems as mortars, plasters, tile adhesives, renders. They are also suitable for different waterbased coating systems.
In construction systems such as mortars, renderings, stuccos, flooring systems and building adhesives, flow control is very important and the main additive used to provide thickening and water retention is cellulose ether. However, the system performance and application behaviour can be significantly improved by using clay based thickeners in combination with cellulose ethers.
