Making an impact on the rubber and plastics industries

 

Kaolins come in a range of particle sizes to meet the properties and requirements needed for a range of demanding applications. The bonds between the kaolin and the polymers provide enhanced mechanical strength, improved impact and flex strength, and a high degree of hydrophobicity.

 

Kaolin also acts as a titanium dioxide extender, which means less of the expensive additive is needed to yield sharper colors.

 

In rubber, kaolin performs as a processing aide, giving the material dependable curing rates and increased strength with better resistance to tears and abrasions.

 

In plastics, Kaolin helps improve impact and tensile strength, warp resistance, electrical and chemical resistance, and enhances smoothness and brightness.
