Effect of Organic Bentonite on Rheological Properties of Paper Coating
Effect of organic bentonite on rheological behavior of paper coating was studied. Organic bentonite was prepared by treating sodium bentonite with dimethyl diallyl ammonium chloride (DADMAC) at the following conditions: DADMAC 20%, reaction time 3h, reaction temperature 80°C and pH 9. The results showed that shear stress and voscosity of coating enhance with increasing the amount of organic bentonite. In this testing, all of flow curves fitted Cross model very much, and rheologiclal properties showed the pseudoplastic fluid, characterized as obvious shear thinning .The bentonite modified with DADMAC could promote the rheological behavior of coating.
