Kaolin provides plastic products with many benefits in terms of dimensional stability and smoothness. During polymer compounding and shape forming, Kaolins greatly reduce cracking and shrinkage. They are also used as a rheological modifier and a functional filler. Kaolins can improve mechanical, electrical and thermal properties of plastics.


Kaolin is a widely used and cost effective pigment in the use of water based paints. Kaolin improves the brightness, gloss, opacity along with other benefits. The fine particle size of the clay also enhances the functional properties of the paint.

                 Adhesives, Caulks & Sealants

Kaolins are essential in adhesives, caulks and sealants because of their fine particle size and platy particle shape. A carefully chosen Kaolin is a necessity when it comes to reaching the desired level of viscosity and shear rate for a product.
