Paper Title:
Technology Characterization of Organo-Clays Obtained from Bentonites of the State of Paraiba
  Abstract

The organo-clays have important industrial uses between others are: rheological additives for drilling fluids in oil bases, inks, glues, lubricants and cosmetics. At the moment and in a growing way, these materials are considered as important reinforcement fillers in the structuring of nano-composites clays/polymers. They are obtained by the smectite clay reaction with quaternary ammonium salts. In this work an organophillic clay sample prepared by a dry process at the PMT – EPUSP – Metallurgic and Materials Engineering Department of the Polytechnic School at the University of São Paulo, had been characterized basically by techniques of XRD, IR, Thermal Analysis, and by swell capacity of the clays in some oils and organic solvents.
