Our vermiculite, flux-calcined and natural diatomaceous earth fillers are made in the U.S and make an ideal flattening agent, color enhancement in paint and coatings, and improve flame retardancy.
Diatomaceous earth fillers are used as a flattening agent. It allows formulators to control gloss and sheen, extends primary pigments, adds bulk and strength, and enhances coating adhesion. It can also be added as a whitening agent and extender where titanium dioxide must be minimized. Diatomaceous earth is also an ideal replacement for more expensive, high brightness prime pigments.
Our finely ground vermiculite is added in paints and sealants to improve flame retardancy and enhance performance in areas where there is an excessive amount of ultraviolet light.
