Microcrystalline Silica

IMSIL® Microcrystalline Silica fillers are produced from an inert, naturally occurring alpha quartz with a unique grape-like morphology. Finer, micronized grades are useful in formulating higher gloss paints and systems requiring controlled mineral top size, such as thin coatings and inks. 

Coarser grades offer texture, traction properties, gloss control, and abrasion resistance in coatings, grouts, sealants, and related building products.
