**The level of suspension achieved depends upon the size and weight of particulate to be suspended. Testing with different particulate is recommended.
Tips: Some trial and error is required with this product, as some additives may be too heavy for the suspending properties of the base to work properly. Users should try adding their ingredients at a slightly cooler temperature than normal, as the base will be thicker and more likely to suspend additives.
The key ingredient in the Suspending M&P base is silica. Silica creates a suspending matrix within the formulation, but that very property can also be apt to trap in more air and create a cloudy effect. Therefore, when stirring in additives, it should be done very gently and avoid any abrupt stirring as this can inadvertently welcome air into the formulation and cause unwanted cloudiness of the base.
