Attapulgite

Attapulgite

Attapulgite clay is a mixture of clay and non-clay minerals with its primary clay mineral being Palygorskite, a hydrous magnesium aluminosilicate. AMI selectively mines from extensive deposits in the North Florida, Southern Georgia area which are unique in the world for their consistent morphology of the Palygorskite particles. In addition, AMI proprietary processing reduces the content of non-clay minerals commonly associated with attapulgite. All of this results in AMI’s Min-U-Gel® and Florigel® HY attapulgite products having a higher palygorskite content making them perform more consistently in a wide variety of applications.

AMI’s Min-U-Gel® and Florigel® HY attapulgite products are used as thixotropic rheology modifiers, low-shear thickeners, anti-settling agents, syneresis controls, and binding agents in a wide variety of applications.  Certain products and their applications meet EPA, AAFCO and API requirements.

MIN-U-GEL®

MIN-U-GEL®

MIN-U-GEL® attapulgite mineral products are used in liquid-based systems to stabilize the media, control flow and leveling, improve film build without sagging, and prevent settling and syneresis. It is a rheology modifier with thixotropic thickening. It also aids in the suspension of pigments to help prevent flooding and floating.

  • MIN-U-GEL® FG coarse grade product is used in crack sealers / grouts and joint tape compounds.
  • MIN-U-GEL® 200 coarse grade is used in agricultural suspensions, such as liquid animal feed supplements, liquid suspension fertilizer, foliar sprays, and various ag chemicals such as wettable powders (WP), water-dispersible granules (WDG) and water-reducible (WR) pesticides. It is an EPA approved inert pesticide ingredient.
  • MIN-U-GEL® 400 fine grade is one of the lowest additives for controlling rheology, suspension and syneresis in a wide variety applications, like paints & coatings (architectural, industrial, asphalt roof, masonry, texture, fire retardant and traffic), latex caulks, foundry mold washes, plastisols, tile adhesives (thin-sets), wood lamination adhesives, and asphalt cutback mastics. It also provides these same benefits in variety of agricultural chemical applications and is registered as an EPA approved inert pesticide ingredient. In molecular sieves and ceramic catalysts it is used as a binder.
