Biopolymer DG-P is a fine mesh, rapid hydrating, water soluble biopolymer produced by fermentation for use in gypsum and hydraulic cementitious systems, as a Viscosity Modifying Agent (VMA).
Ø Imparts high solution viscosity at low gum concentrations
Ø Has pseudoplastic rheology profile (e.g., is shear thinning) providing:
l low viscosity at high shear rates ( Easy to pump & place )
l high viscosity at low shear rates ( Provides superb particle suspension)
Ø Exhibits little solution viscosity change over a wide temperature range.
Ø Provides excellent suspension and emulsion stability at lower viscosities.
Ø Improved pumping, placement and workability.
Ø Controls Bleed.
Ø Is stable under high-shear.
Ø Exhibits low viscosity while processing (e.g., pumping and spraying).
Ø Provides excellent water retention.
Ø Improves shelf life stability of high pH products.
Ø Homogeneous placement and curing of aggregate, sand, pigment and past.
l Improved surface properties and durability
l Uniform strength
l Improves pigment efficiency and provides consistent color quality
Ø Bleed control improves quality, and may reduce labor finishing costs.
Ø Reduces impact of raw material variability on costs and quality.
l Reduces impact of moisture in sand and aggregate
l Reduces impact of gap graded sand and aggregate
Ø Stabilizes highly fluid mix designs for Gypsum Systems, Self Compacting Concrete and
Underwater Concrete Systems.
Ø Gypsum floor screeds
Ø Self Compacting Concrete (SCC)
Ø Injection & post tension grouts
Ø Pigmented concrete & gypsum systems
Ø Self Leveling Underlayments (SLU)
Ø Underwater concrete (anti-washout)
Ø Pervious concrete
DG-P Biopolymer is typically used at a level of 0.01 - 0.15 wt% basis weight of water.
