Barium Sulphate - Blanc Fixe Fine Grade

Product Name: Barium Sulphate - Blanc Fixe Fine Grade
Description: Blanc fixe is a white, soluble, heavy compound obtained either from the natural mineral barytes, or by chemical treatment of barium and sulfuric acid. It is highly transparent, improves printability. It is also used to form the pigment lithopone, which is also known as "blanc fixe".
BLANC FIXE Fine Grade is a functional extender for paints and coatings with maximum gloss and brilliance standards. Despite its extremely fine particle size, BLANC FIXE fine grade can be dispersed relatively easy. BLANC FIXE fine grade is totally inert under normal conditions, and possesses high resistance to outdoor exposure and to chemicals. Thanks to its synthesis from high purity solutions, BLANC FIXE is itself extremely pure. This is apparent in its extremely high brightness and the total absence of catalytically active trace elements.
BLANC FIXE has only an extremely low grit content, since its crystals are obtained from solutions and are not produced by means of grinding processes. This also results in the complete avoidance of extremely fine particles, which would otherwise cause viscosity difficulties. Problematical agglomerates are virtually completely eliminated by means of micronization during this product‘s final processing stage.
BLANC FIXE micro generally improves coating properties:
  • It acts as a spacer for TiO2, coloured pigments and carbon blacks
  • It has an extremely fine particle size of around 0.7µm
  • It exhibits an extremely low binder demand
  • It is chemically inert
  • It is resistant to outdoor exposure
  • It has an extremely narrow particle size distribution
  • It has no grit contents
  • Automotive coatings
  • Decorative coatings
  • Industrial Paints
  • High Solids
  • Pigment Pastes
  • Powder coating systems
  • Inks
  • Plastics
  • Cosmetics

Gelsil AS-150

Product Name: Gelsil AS-150
Description: An extender is an ingredient added to paint in order to increase coverage, reduce cost, achieve durability, control rheology and influence other desirable properties. Extenders are generally less expensive compared to prime hiding pigments such as titanium dioxide.
Gelsil AS-150 is a synthetic sodium aluminum silicate, which it is used as an extender for titanium dioxide or other white pigments. Due to its high white strength value and uniformly fine particle size, it provides to the paint a significant opacity degree, increasing its abrasion resistance, hiding power, whiteness and delivering excellent cost efficiency without affecting the quality of the resin.
Applications: Plastics & Coatings

Talc KPT-850

Product Name: Talc KPT-850
Description: 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. These properties lead to a reduction in bubble formation, corrosion and peeling.
Effects and benefits:
  • 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
Applications: Paints & Coatings
