Functional Mineral for Plastics
Owing to its exceptional weathering resistance, HIFILL N (made from nepheline syenite) has been the mineral filler of choice in the architectural paints industry for over 30 years – the same performance is now being demonstrated in filled plastics applications and products.
HIFILL N mineral fillers offer an optimum balance of physical and optical properties, ease of processing, regulatory compliance and cost effectiveness. This product is sustainably produced, urgently and reliably delivered, serviced and supported with our customers’ continued growth and success in mind. HIFILL N fillers are available in ultrafine, precisely controlled particle size distributions for optimum performance.
Features and Benefits
