XL™ is a liquid crosslinking additive for guar gum based tackifiers.
Appearance Light to Dark Liquid
Bulk Density 1.2 g/cc
Ionic Character Nonionic
pH 3.3 0.5
XL™ is an insolublizing additive for guar gum solutions. XL™ can be used to increase solution
viscosity and/or to decrease the solubility of the guar polymer once cured.
Specific conditions may exist for erosion control that requires long term matrix stabilization.
XL™ is used to insolublize the guar polymer, thus increasing the longevity of its adhesion qualities.
Once cured, the guar gum based tackifier will resist re-wetting for an extended period of time.
For erosion control the liquid XL™ is added to the water prior to the guar gum tackifier.
It is recommended that XL™ be added at 40% of the guar, ie. for a 40% rate, 20 lbs of
XL™ is added per 50 lbs of guar.
STORAGE & HANDLING
XL™ should be stored in a dry, cool warehouse protected from damage to packaging.
See Material Safety Data Sheet.
XL™ is packaged in 1 gallon (10lbs per gallon) plastic containers, 4 gallons per case.
Call Rantec for alternative packaging.
