Talc in Paint Industry
Talc the mineral is used in Paint to improve its physical properties, which include wet scrub resistance, optical properties, weathering protection and more. Talc is used as an extender and filler in paints. The platy shape of talc particles improves the suspension of solids in the can and helps the liquid paint adhere to a wall without sagging. Powdered talc is a very bright white color. This makes talc excellent filler in paint because it simultaneously serves to whiten and brighten the paint. Our paint grade talc powder products have low abrasion, super white and very fine mesh (500 mesh to 2500 mesh) to give excellent hiding and surface coverage to paints.
