Paint and Varnish Industry

Due to its application properties, caused by chemical structure and particle shape, talc is an important filler and reinforcing agent, especially also in paint and coatings technology, because talc…

  • solidifies and cross-links the coating layer
  • produces a reinforcing effect and increases weather resistance
  • promotes adhesion and sanding properties
  • increases flexural strength, sliding properties and elasticity
  • prevents sedimentation and sedimentation during storage due to the formation of a yield point
  • enables the production of high-quality matt and semi-matt topcoats and allows the control of matt and gloss levels
  • increases the adhesion of paints on metal substrates
  • is self-dispersing in paint systems (is very well dispersible)
  • improves the dispersibility of the color pigments used
  • promotes rheological properties, film hardness and film resistance
  • results in higher rub resistance in surface coatings
  • reduces water vapor migration in corrosion protection systems

Talc also plays an important role as a cost-effective replacement for titanium dioxide (to increase whiteness and opacity) while improving classic product properties such as cracking and strength.

Talc can therefore be used in almost all types of paints (acid-curing paints, stoving paints, road marking paints, thixotropic paints, sanding paints, etc.).
