Satintone® SP33 Specialty Aluminum Silicate For PVC Wire & Cable Applications

Satintone® SP33 is derived from a high purity, water-washed hydrous kaolin, calcined to impart excellent insulating properties in PVC compounds. It is highly pulverized to provide excellent dispersion in polymeric compounds. Water-washed kaolin feed results in low residue, low soluble salts, and consistent quality.

Satintone® 5HB

Ultra high brightness calcined kaolin

Satintone® 5HB kaolin is widely used as an extender in flat and satin paints as it provides a high degree of opacity and tint strength. Its high brightness results in whiter paints and bases that provide cleaner colors. Satintone® 5HB kaolin provides excellent optical properties for titanium dioxide extension in rubber and plastic compounds. Satintone® 5HB kaolin offers high impact strength when compounded into engineering plastics.

 

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS:

Water-borne interior flats, polyamides (6, 66 and blends), silicone rubber, solvent-borne interior flats, plastisols, mechanical rubber goods, TPE / TPO, TiO2 extension, OEM electrodeposition coatings, polyester gel coats, EPR power cables.
