Steabright® A multifunctional extender to improve mud cracking and QUV in decorative paints
- Enhanced crack resistance
- Exterior durability
- Excellent dispersion
Steabright® is a mid-fine, bright lamellar talc chlorite which is ideal for improving mud cracking and QUV in decorative paints.
In interior and exterior decorative coatings, Steabright® provides an optimal balance of paint properties such as:
- Hiding power and TiO2 extension
- Matt effect • mud cracking resistance
- QUV resistance
- Scrub resistance
- Application properties
- Outdoor durability
Steabright® is produced from a bright talc-chlorite ore.
Chlorite has a slightly higher affinity to water than talc due to the presence of additional OH groups in the mineral.
As a result, it is easily incorporated in the dispersion phase of paint production even at high concentration rates.
