Engineered Colored Aluminum Silcate

ENGINEERED COLORED ALUMINUM SILICATE is a high quality, cost‐effective colored kaolin designed for use in Non‐White paints, coatings, plastics and many other products.

In products which require opacity and color, ENGINEERED COLORED ALUMINUM SILICATE can reduce the amount of expensive color
pigments used as well as partially replace some of the white TiO2. Depending on the finished colored desired, ENGINEERED COLORED ALUMINUM SILICATE can replace from 15 to 20 percent of the white TiO2 and color pigments achieving considerable savings.

ENGINEERED COLORED ALUMINUM SILICATE offers a two‐fold cost savings by: first, substituting or partially replacing the expensive standard white TiO2 and secondly, often more significantly, the reduction of the more expensive colored pigments (organic and inorganic colored pigments).

COLORED ALUMINUM SILICATE is natural colored engineered aluminium silicate extender pigment having outstanding opacity characteristics. Semi fine particles of ENGINEERED COLORED ALUMINUM SILICATE imparts color, tint & opacity in paint formulation system. ENGINEERED COLORED ALUMINUM SILICATE is an inorganic mineral that enable to reduce the application of related expensive pigment and greatly reduce the overall paint formulation cost. Superior inter miscibility of ENGINEERED COLORED ALUMINUM SILICATE with other pigments & additives make it more suitable for easy plant operation.
