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 particle top size such as Industrial OEM topcoat coats and non-conductive inks.
Intermediate size grades offer ideal and uniform gloss control for topcoats, coil coats and increased inter-coat adhesion between primers and topcoats. Coarser grades offer high solids loading with low viscosity, texture, anti-skid and abrasion resistance in industrial floor coatings and exterior deck coatings.
Features and Benefits
- Easily wetted and dispersed in either solvent or water-based systems
- Gloss and Sheen control
- Superior chemical resistance
- Inter-coat adhesion
- Color and gloss retention over prolonged exposure
