Comment | More

Minerals Technologies Inc. has launched three new products to extend titanium dioxide (TiO2) in paints and coatings.

Albafil T10, Albacar T10 and Albafil S10 are precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) products designed to replace 10 percent of the titanium dioxide in a variety of industrial coatings and architectural paints, the company says. The products were developed by MTI subsidiary Specialty Minerals Inc., the world’s largest supplier of PCCs.

Applications

MTI says the new products were designed with the form, structure and particle size to provide spacing and light-scattering properties in architectural and industrial formulations. The products are suitable for semi-gloss, satin, eggshell and flat paint formulations.

 The three new precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) products come from Specialty Minerals Inc., the world’s largest supplier of PCCs.

The three new precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) products come from Specialty Minerals Inc., the world’s largest supplier of PCCs.

The structure, form and particle size distribution allow for 10 percent replacement of TiO2 with minimal reduction of white brightness, opacity, hiding and gloss, the manufacturer says. There is also little effect on the viscosity, scrub and stain resistance of the paints produced, according to MTI.

Albafil S10, a 70 percent aqueous slurry version, is also available for waterborne formulations.

‘Cost-Effective Alternative’

“These new PCC offerings provide manufacturers of paints and coatings a more cost-effective alternative for their product formulations,” said Joseph C. Muscari, chairman and CEO of MTI.

New York-based Minerals Technologies Inc. develops, produces and markets a broad range of specialty mineral, mineral-based and synthetic mineral products and related systems and services. The company recorded sales of $1.04 billion in 2011.

Specialty Minerals is based in Bethlehem, PA.
