Project Description

Aluminum Silicate (Al2siO3)

Advantages in Paint Production:

  • Widely used in the manufacturing of paint, as a less expensive alternative to Titanium dioxide.
  • Part of white pigment like Titanium dioxide (10%/ more) can be replaced without loss of opacity.
  • Give faster surface & through-drying in products which also stand up better to abrasive treatment.
  • Excellent substrates for high gloss finishes as they ensure good leveling out.
