Satintone® calcined kaolin powders are industry standard extending agents for titanium dioxide in coatings, inks and polymers. Cost reduction is achievable through judicious use of these products whilst properties like whiteness, brightness, hiding power, matting and scrub resistance can be maintained or even improved.

This product range is widely used in the wire & cable industry for acid scavenging in PVC compounds and more generally for improving electrical insulation under both wet and dry conditions.
