Talc in decorative paints

OVER THE YEARS, IMI FABI HAS DEVELOPED A BROAD RANGE OF PRODUCTS SUITABLE FOR DECORATIVE PAINTS

DECORATIVE PAINTS COVER VARIOUS APPLICATIONS IN AMARKET WITH SPECIFIC TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS FORMECHANICAL, OPTICAL AND EASY-TO-APPLY PROPERTIESIN ARCHITECTURE.
Over the years IMI Fabi has developed a wide range of specific talc products, used as functional fillers.
These fillers aresuitable for applications in decorative coatings, such as interior wall paints, façade paints, insulating primers and universal paints.
Using its own resources and state-of-the-art size reductiontechnologies, IMI Fabi can offer an extended product portfolioin talc, providing the right whiteness to fineness balance.
Considering requests for high opacity, matting, weather andscrub resistance special selected products out of the IMI Fabirange can improve decorative paint formulations in a costeffectiveframework.

IMI Fabi Talc grades for decorative paints

Several natural characteristics of talc offer significant improvements in paint formulations in thearchitecture industry.
Highly white and pure IMI Fabi talc offers natural hydrophobicity improving mechanical properties,especially on wet scrub resistance.
The lamellar structure of talc optimizes the packing density of nodular fillers in the paint formulations.This leads to good opacity for high quality interior wall paints.
The platy particle structure has an influence on the rheological behavior of paints. IMI Fabi provides talcwith balanced particle size distribution to improvesagging, storage stability and film formation. Byreducing internal film stress, talc platelets helpreduce mud-cracking.
Because of the natural chemical inertness andbarrier effect, IMI Fabi’s wide portfolio also coversexterior applications in overall binder systems forfaçade paints to enhance weather resistance.
The appropriate selection from IMI Fabi Talcproducts enables gloss regulation, from silkyand to high mat finishes; and the special range ofmicronized talc with high brightness and pureness isoften used as extenders. These products provide theopportunity to formulate paints with reduced TiO2content to optimize costs.
