|Surface of Application
It is white soft plastic clay derived from the decomposition of granite or similar rock. Most kaolin is wet refined to produce a range of products to improve both physical and chemical properties to meet specific customer applications.Kaolin modified through very high (700-1,200ºC) temperatures. Calculations improve whiteness and change the chemistry, making the kaolin less hydrophilic and reducing electrical conductivity. It is a Number One replacement of TiO2 extender. During the calcination, morphological, mineralogical and chemical changes occur which result in products with excellent optical properties.
Snow-White is used as an opacifying extender in water base paints as having excellent optical properties. And Snow Shine product improves the opacity and reduces the TiO2 level in emulsion paint.
Rheology / Thixotropic control which provide
body to the pain
Low in impurity & strong in chemical inertia
Easy to disperse in water & oil based structure
Better barrier properties & corrosion resistance
Improves and/or maintains product performance at competitive cost and extends higher cost pigments such as TiO2
Improved hiding power, reinforcement, tint retention and sheen control, as well as high brightness and weathering resistance
