Talc and kiln furniture

LKAB Minerals' talc products are grey and therefore more suited for bulk applications where colour is not of importance. These applications include kiln furniture manufacture, ceramics, agriculture, roofing, some coating applications and plastics.

Our magnesitic talc lump is milled in the UK to produce carefully controlled particle sized products.

Talc applications

  • yellow paint, talc in paint

    Talc in the coatings industry

    Within the surface coatings industry Talc is used in a variety of industrial coating applications including primers and undercoats. Talc is used as a filler/extender where it imparts corrosion resistance and increases paint stability. Talc can be used in solvent and waterborne paint applications.

    LKAB Minerals has developed a talc product specifically for the coatings industry. Talc S20 is suitable for use in anti-corrosive and marine coatings. This 40% magnesitic talc will provide a barrier effect thereby reducing oxygen and water transmission to the substrate. The S20 talc product improves weathering resistance and reinforces the coating making it a viable alternative to other talc products.

  • Talc in the agriculture industry

    Talc in agriculture

    Used in fertilisers talc works as an anti-blocking agent which enables the feed cake to be broken up easily. As Talc is inert it is the preferred choice for animal feed; it also prevents the growth of bacteria in the feedstock.

  • Talc in ceramics

    Talc in ceramics

    Talc is used in ceramics because of its high fusion point used as a secondary flux in bodies and glazes. The low level of shrinkage talc imparts helps to improve craze resistance in ceramics.

  • Talc in ceramics

    Talc in plastics

    Due to the grey colour Talc is suitable where colour and physical properties are not vitally important. It is used in a number of different polymer systems such as PVC used in flooring. Talc can also be compounded into polypropylene for injection moulding.
