I am looking for a "gel" that I can utilize for a slurry suspension of sand. I will be testing at around 5000psi (ambient temp) and I need to be able to maintain the suspension during erosion testing (the gel will be mobile in the fixture). I have read that there are issues with maintaining the suspension and preventing the gel from liquefying during testing. Does anyone have any ideas on what gel(s) may work for such an application? Thanks
