Product Highlights

Talc in paint and coatings 

  • The utilization of talc lead to extreme advantages in paint and coatings. Talc is used primarily in industrial paint and coatings, wood lacquers, printing inks, fillers as well as in various coatings.
  • Due to the characteristics of talc, it is outstandingly suitable for paints and coatings. The lamellar, hydrophobic and chemical inert structure of talc makes it to a perfect filler for the industry.
  • Talc increases coverage and weather resistance of the products.
  • The use of talc creates a barrier effect, which limits the penetration of water and corrosive agents into paints and coatings. This properties lead to a reduction in bubble formation, corrosion and peeling.

Talc in plastics

  • The application spectrum for talc in plastics is nearly unlimited.
  • Talc can be used among other things in automotive industry, food packaging industry, for white goods, cases for laptops, window pro-files and polypropylene production.
  • During the production process and in the application the material act as a functional filler (for example as an anti-caking agent, a pro-cessing aid inert carrier and absorbent, etc.)
  • The use of talc improves the specific characteristics of plastics an increases the quality, therefore purity, aspect ratio, particle size dis-tribution and whiteness are the determining factors.
Effects and benefits

Talc in paint and coatings 

  • Extension of durability through
  • Improves the resistance and prevents cracking and peel of
  • Water-repellent effect
  • Increases the viscosity and facilitate dispersion
  • Improves the weather and UV resistance
  • Reduction of solvents – decrease VOC
  • Improves the adhesion of the coating film

Talc in plastics

  • Through its laminar structure and the high aspect ratio of talc the stiffness increase.
  • Talc acts as a lubricant and is partic-ularly gentle to machines
  • Increases the scratch resistance
  • A pure talc, with a low loss of igni-tion and a high aspect ratio, helps keep plastics parts dimensionally stable.
  • Increases resistance to UV radia-tion
  • Variation of the flow properties
  • Ideal anti-blocking agent
  • Extremely fine talc acts as nucleation excipient and increases the heat re-sistance and crystallization tempera-ture of plastics. 

Applications & Uses

Application Examples
  • Plastics: Filler medium for polypropylene/polyamide/polyethylene; increases rigidity and whiteness levels, acts as nucleating agent, insulating, flame-retarding, water-repellent
  • Paints and coatings: Architectural, coating and corrosion protection, gindable systems, adhesives; improved visocosity and covering power, prevents sedimentation, fixes pigments
  • Paper: Filler material, pitch control, surface coating; imporves whiteness, opacity and printability
  • Ceramics, rubber, asphalt: Filler material; increases rigidity and temperature resistance, reduces processing temperature
  • Pharmacy and cosmetics: powder, additve for pills; servers as a carrier for both dry and moistrue materials
  • Food and animal feed Release agent and carrier substance for colours and nutrients (food additive E553b), flow regulating agent
  • Other uses: Process additive, lubricant and anti-adhesive, clearing effect in waste water
