A thickening agent or thickener is a substance which can increase the viscosity of a liquid without substantially changing its other properties. TRIOTHICK range of products include thickening product used in important formulation needs. since rheology agents can significantly impact the feel, product stability, and even the efficacy of the product.
TRIOTHICK is used to improve the suspension of other ingredients or emulsions which increases the stability of the product. It is used in Food additives, Mineral processing, wastewater treatment, surface coating & Cosmetics.
In food processing, TRIOTHICK is used to stabilize emulsions, either by adsorbing to the outer surface of oil droplets or by increasing the viscosity of the water phase. Thus, they prevent the coalescence of the oil droplets, promoting the separation of the oil phase from the aqueous phase (i.e., creaming).
As in sludge treatment, handling of slurry is very important, so for the easy handling of slurry, TRIOTHICK is used to reduce the total volume of sludge to less than half the original volume.
The rheological properties of coatings (that is, their ability to flow) or viscosity of fluids are of prime importance in their preparation, storage, and application. To increase the viscosity, or thickening of coating, Thickeners are used.
