LKAB Minerals manufacture and supply a wide range of minerals for use in decorative paints and coatings, including mica, marble powders, talc, and chalk whiting. The main products and their applications and uses are described below.
When MicaFort is used in matt decorative wall coatings, they show improved sheen control.
Chalk whiting is used in paints to provide body, adjust sheen or increase viscosity.
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’s 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.
