Minerals Technologies launches new products for application in paints and coatings

Published May 15, 2012
Minerals Technologies Inc. has launched three new precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) products for extension of titanium dioxide (TiO2) in paints and coatings applications. Specialty Minerals Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Minerals Technologies and provider of mineral additives, has introduced Albafil T10 and Albacar T10. These new products have been specifically designed with morphology and particle size to provide spacing and light-scattering properties in architectural paints and industrial coatings formulations. A 70 percent aqueous slurry version, Albafil S10, is also available for waterborne formulations. These products are very effective in semi-gloss, satin, eggshell and flat paint formulations the company said. The morphology and particle size distribution allows for 10 percent replacement of TiO2 with minimal reduction of white brightness, opacity, hiding and gloss. In addition, there is little affect on the viscosity, scrub and stain resistance of the paints produced.
