StarLig products can be used for many applications, such as conditioning, deflocculating and binding. Deflocculating mainly applies to the milling of clays, where finer grains can be obtained and formation of incrustations in the mills can be avoided. The binding action leads to improved mechanical resistance, right from the green stage.
StarLig products can also give an effective fluidifying effect. This means that the water content of mixtures can be reduced. As the products comprise organic substances, they are almost entirely eliminated by calcification and therefore they do not affect the end-product quality. Typical StarLig products for this application are calcium lignosulfonate and magnesium lignosulfonate. Also high-end, purified premium StarLig lignosulfonates can be applied.
