Sepiolite Clay is a naturally occurring mineral of sedimentary origin, characteristically lightweight and porous with a large specific surface area and low chemical activity. It is a compact mineral with an acicular structure and, chemically speaking, it is a hydrous magnesium silicate that is valued for its rheological properties, as well as its outstanding suspension properties in aqueous compositions.
PANGEL is a sepiolite product which is obtained by means of a special purification and micronization system patented by the TOLSA Group of Spain. Mined in Spain, PANGEL is a natural, safe and reliable clay product produced without use of chemicals, solvents, synthetics and sterilizing treatments, making it a perfect ingredient for those looking to make “natural” and “organic” products. Since sepiolite clay is naturally occurring and processed without the use of any chemicals it does not need "REACH" registration. Because of its inorganic nature sepiolite clay is not a nutrient for bacteria, thus increasing the stability of the thickened system against microbiological degradation.
