Also known as Aluminium Silicate (Al2O3, 2SiO2, 2H2O) It mainly has oil absorbing properties, reduced shine and translucent properties. It also provides hiding effect and reduces the usage of TiO2 to a great extent.

 

Calcined Clay has several industrial applications such as:

  • Paper industry: used as a filler which reduces its overall cost, improves its printing properties such as brightness, smoothness and gloss.
