Hatorite® RD

    Lithium Magnesium Sodium Silicate (Hatorite® RD)

    The Clear Leader



    Hatorite® RD is a synthetic layered silicate. It is insoluble in water but hydrates and swells to give clear and colorless colloidal dispersions. At concentrations of 2% or greater in water, highly thixotropic gels can be produced.


    Used for imparting a shear sensitive structure to a wide range of waterborne formulations. These include household and industrial surface coatings, cleansers, ceramic glazes agrochemical, oilfield and horticultural products.
