Talcs confer a whole range of benefits to coatings. In interior and exterior decorative paints, they act as extenders to improve hiding power and titanium dioxide efficiency. Talc’s lamellar platelets make paint easier to apply and improve cracking resistance and sagging. They also enhance matting. In anti-corrosion primers, talcs are used to improve corrosion resistance and paint adhesion. They also bring benefits to inks, jointing compounds, putties and adhesives.
