LKAB Minerals manufacture and supply a wide range of minerals for use in decorative coatings including mica, marble powders, talc and chalk whiting. The main products and their applications and uses are described below.
Sparkle and sheen
When MicaFort is used in matt decorative wall coatings they will show improved sheen control.
Chalk whiting is used in paints to provide body, adjust sheen or increase viscosity.
Stabilise your coating
MicaFort significantly improves mud cracking in high PVC coatings. Additionally, when incorporated into the formulation of roof, wood and tile coatings these gain improved crack resistance and UV stability during prolonged external exposure.
Talc can be used in primers where it increases the paint stability.
Talc and Chalk can be used in solvent and waterborne paint applications as a filler or extender of expensive pigments. As Talc is off-white in colour it finds its use in surface coatings
