Gilsonite Usage In Industry
Industry Usage of Gilsonite consists of inks & Paints, Asphalt, Isolation, Chemical, Coating, Foundry, and construction.
Gilsonite Usage in Inks & Paints
Because of the unique properties of Gilsonite, it gives the paint an excellent bond to almost any material that needs to be protected from the elements. It is a critical high-performance, low-cost paint additive for anticorrosive paints, underbody paints, and pipe coatings.
The superior performance of Gilsonite means you can find it in the majority of wood stains produced in the U.S. In this application, the unique properties of Gilsonite make it both a binder to protect the wood, and a pigment that gives a deep, rich color that won’t fade over time. Gilsonite paint additive is Naturally Better and you just can’t get this performance with any other material—natural or synthetic.
A paint consisting essentially of 20 gallons of petroleum solvent, 10 gallons of linseed oil, 10 gallons turpentine, pounds ofGilsonite pigment, 4 gallons varnish mixture consisting of 17.8% pentaerythritol rosin ester, 30.8% dehydrated castor oil, 1.4% of a mixture of lead, cobalt and manganese naphthenates, 1-gallon wetting agent consisting essentially of salts of petroleum sulfonic acids, 2 quarts of drier, and 1 pint of a hydrocarbon silicon penetrating oil, obtained by heating a mixture of finely ground silicon dioxide under pressure to a temperature of about 300 F. with a distillate product obtained by subjectingGilsonite to fractional distillation, said distillate product being that fraction which distills at a temperature range of about 430 F. to 438 F.
Gilsonite is widely used as the primary carbon black wetting agent for black news inks and headset and toner inks. PUB Gilsonite Resin competes advantageously with hydrocarbon resins, phenolic resins.
Advantages of Using Gilsonite In Inks & Paints
- Superior binding properties for many materials
- UV light stability
- Fade-resistant transparent pigment gives a deep, rich color to wood stains
Gilsonite Usage In Asphalt
Gilsonite makes roads stronger to last longer.
As an asphalt binder modifier, the unique properties of Gilsonite make a road that is less susceptible to high-temperature and deformation performance issues. When these modified binders are used in recycled asphalt pavements, Gilsonite adds back what time has taken from the old asphalt, making it easier to use more of this recycled material. The Gilsonite-modified asphalt binder will produce a stronger road that can be thinner by nearly 20 percent compared with other pavements. For more information about this application, please contact us.
As an aggregate modifier, Gilsonite can be added directly at the hot mix plant with no additional equipment. The excellent bonding properties of Gilsonite will produce a high-strength, high-performance pavement that also resists water stripping.
Advantages of Using Gilsonite In Asphalt
- High strength and durability
- Superior deformation performance
- Reduced pavement thickness
- Reduced temperature susceptibility
- Increased resistance to water stripping
Gilsonite Usage In Isolation
Gilsonite in isolation is most used to the production of isogamy.
By mixing Gilsonite, calcium carbonate, and bitumen with stretch enhancer oil, it is produced by isogamy that creates composite and increases the thermal resistance of the rubble and creates a stable and homogeneous coating.
Advantages of Using Gilsonite In Isolation
- Increased shear strength
- Increased resistance to the movement of layers
- Low-temperature flexibility is maintained
- Reduced the tendency of the isogamy to move and use on sloping surfaces.
- Reduced fluctuations at high temperatures
- The combination of low-temperature flexibility and high-temperature shear strength and resistance to motion
Gilsonite Usage In Chemical Industry
Gilsonite is widely Used in the production of glue and sealant. This material is a good lubricant and in combination with other chemicals, various products can be obtained. Some uses of Gilsonite in chemicals is in Ceramic production, Rubber industry, Wood industry, Steel product.
Gilsonite Usage In Coating Industry
Gilsonite is used for preventing the pipes from corrosion and it acts as an additive in pipe isolator, which increases the pipe life significantly. Gilsonite is used in different industries as a resin for waterproofing purposes, for example in the Automobile industry it is used as an additive in the coating car’s underbody.
Gilsonite Usage In Foundry & Construction
For your complex, high-value iron castings, Gilsonite performs like no other carbon additive. Gilsonite’s naturally superior properties mean high-quality castings with better finish and fewer imperfections. Gilsonite Can combine with coal and other ingredients as an additive in foundry sands to ensure the quality of the molded part. The lower gas evolution should reduce the ventilation load on the pouring floor. The physical property relationships developed in new mixes were confirmed by sand using Gilsonite as an additive. Gilsonite is a carbonate additive too and can be added to sands of foundry and play the role of a strong adhesive for them.
Advantages of Using Gilsonite In Foundry & Construction
- Three times as much gas generated vs. sea-coal for better mold release
- High lustrous carbon for a better finish
- The reductive atmosphere for less reaction between mold and casting for fewer imperfections
