grodex TiO PS
This is chemical based(three pack system) gum for pasting of corrugated sheets.
It can be used for corrugation process during immergencies.that is why it is called TiO(Two In One)
grodex TiO PS Specifications
|APPLICATION||Cold Process Pasting. (Can also be used for Corrugation).|
|BASE||MODIFIED Tapioca Starch & Corn starch (Vegetable Base) with Chemical starter. (Two pack system ).|
Powder - Off white to yellowish.
Liquid Gum - Shinning Reddish Brown.
|VISCOSITY||Viscosity to be checked on Ford Cup No. 4 –|
(40 Kg Bag) 1: 4 water mixing ratio Visc. 30 to 35, solids 20 %
(35 Kg Bag) 1: 5 water mixing ratio Visc. 30 to 35, solids 17 %
(30 Kg Bag) 1: 6 water mixing ratio Visc. 30 to 35,solids 14.5%
|SHELF LIFE||Shelf Life of Powder is 3 months from the date of manufacturing.|
|POT LIFE||Pot Life of Gum is 72 hours if kept hygienically.|
Preservatives have already been added to grodex TiO and therefore do not add any preservatives in it. Addition of preservatives may reduce viscosity and adhesion of the liquid gum.
The product has been given anti fungus treatment in the manufacturing process itself and therefore actual users are requested not to add any Anti Fungus Chemicals to it.
Such addition may reduce viscosity and Pin Adhesion of the gum.
|HOW TO PREPARE|
First take entire 4/5/6 units of water in a vessel mounted by High speed stirrer. Start stirrer and add gradual flow of grodex TiO powder to it.
Do not put entire 1 unit of powder at a time to avoid lumps formation. After putting 1 unit of pasting powder in to the water,make sure that there is no lumps formation and entire powder hasbeen dissolved in to water. You will get a Milky white solution from it.
Take 5 Ltrs of Water in a bucket and add entire starter chemical packet in it. Dissolve it completely in water. Add that starter mixed 5 Ltr Water in the milky white solution slowly. Continue stirring unless liquid changes its color to shining Radish Brown
Continue stirring for at least 25 to 30 minutes to get maximum solids percent and desired 30 to 35 sec viscosity. Ensure viscosity on B-4 cup as 30 to 35 seconds. Check Solids.
For faster drying / curing of sheets, Low warpage, more B/S,More compression and better feel to bare hands, etc. always prefer To work with high solids and low viscosity.
grodex TiO gives additional bursting and compression to the sheet.
All above information is based on findings in our laboratory and results may vary at the actual floor level at the time of its consumption, depending upon hardness of water, heat and humidity in the atmosphere, cleanliness of the gum vessel, gum trey and gum roller.
