Glossy Clay T

High Performance China Clay / Kaolin
China Clay, also known as Kaolin or Glossy Clay, falls under the Kaolinite group of clays. Kaolin is fine white clay mainly composed of Kaolinite and other related minerals such as halloysite. Kaolin is a hydrated alumino-silicate having a sheet structure.
The general formula of Kaolin is Al2(Si2O5)(OH)4. The ultimate breakdown product of most rock-forming minerals is kaolinite. It is formed through the alteration or kaolinization of feldspar-rich parent rocks by weathering or hydrothermal processes. Free Silica (grit) is the most undesirable impurity and is removed during processing by levigation, sedimentation or air-separation techniques. Using advanced techniques, Kaolin is developed as Super glossy range of quality clay. Brightness combined with ultra fine particle size of Kaolin helps to achieve excellent shade along with exceptional print, gloss and hiding.
Glossy Clay T, a fine Hydrous Kaolin from 20 Microns Limited, is a product with ultra fine particle size & high brightness to offer ease of dispersion and improve gloss in both aqueous and solvent base paints and printing ink. Glossing Clay T contributes to improve opacity as a TiO2 extender. In Industrial Paints, it provides anti-settling and high-gloss at higher solid.

Sub-Clay

Sub-Clay : Sub Micron Extender

SUB - CLAY unique and consistent micro-particle size of 0.2 microns (200 nm) produced by a revolutionary milling technique which creates a very narrow particle size distribution. The platy nature of SUB - CLAY in combination with its particle size result in unmatched properties as a spacer extender for TiO2 in medium and highgloss paints for interior as well as exterior application.

SUB - CLAY improves the opacity with highgloss and reheological behaviours due to its particles have surface hydroxyl group, which contribute to thixotrophy in water base coating via hydrogen bonding. SUB - CLAY ultrafine particle size gives exceptional ease of dispersion at below and above the critical pigment volume concentration (CPVC) in water and solvent base paint formulation.

    Key Benefits
  • •  High dry and wet film opacity
  • •  Cost saving partial replacement of TiO2
  • •  Resin extension
  • •  Excellent tinting strength
  • •  Improve homogeneity less sedimentation
