|Pigment Suspending Agent|
|Wesbond PSA is a pigment suspending agent designed for use in colloidal silica/pigment slurries for coloring and hardening of ceramic fiber shapes like fireplace logs. It performs exceptionally well for suspending pigments used in slurries for dipping, spraying, and brush-on applications. Wesbond PSA is an all-inorganic magnesium aluminum silicate powder with a pH similar to that of colloidal silica (9-10) and high temperature properties similar to the ceramic fibers used in vacuum formed fireplace logs.|
|Easier Mixing —||Improves pigment
suspension and reduces settling to make mixing easier.
|Improved Color Uniformity —||Suspends and disperses
pigment for more uniform color.
|Improved Hardness —||Colloidal mineral
blend creates stronger, more durable coatings.
|Significantly Lower Costs —||WesBond PSA
improves pigment surface retention reducing overall pigment use by up to
50% - a significant cost reduction. It also replaces up to 10% of expensive
colloidal silica, bringing your overall formulation costs down.
