Application of Micronised Talc Powder

The mineral talc is used in various industries that include

  • Ceramic::Used as filler material in cermaic products, it enhances the strenghth and firing characterstic of the cermaic product.
  • Plastic :: It is mainly used as a filler. The platy shape of mineral talc particles increase the stiffness of products such as polypropylene, vinyl, polyethylene, nylon and polyester. It also increase the heat resistance of these products and reduce shrinkage.
  • Paper :: Used as filler material in making paper. When organic pulp is rolled to make thin sheets, the fine talc particles fill the gap between organic pulp fibers, resulting in fine, high quality, smooth and bright paper sheet.
  • Paint :: Talc is used as an extender and filler in paints. The platy shape of talc particles improves the suspension of solids in the can and helps the liquid paint adhere to a wall without sagging. It also brightens the paint.
