Kamin Waterwashed Kaolin Clays

Waterwashed Kaolin Clays

Water-washed kaolin is the work-horse of the industry. Its wide use as an all-purpose filler and extender make it the industry standard for driving down total formulation costs. These products range from coarse to fine particle sizes offering medium to high brightness depending on grade:

KaMin 35           KaMin 35B           KaMin 611           KaMin HG
KaMin 80           KaMin 80B           KaMin 90             KaMin 90B
 

 

Key Features

KaMin 35: General purpose, medium brightness, coarse particle size filler with low oil and water demand. KaMin 35 is used primarily in adhesives, paints, inks, or where low binder demand is important. KaMin 35 provides holdout, barrier properties, reduced sheen, and minimal viscosity increase to coatings and inks. It is suitable for solvent, solvent-free and water-based systems.

KaMin 35B: General purpose, medium brightness, coarse particle size filler with low oil and water demand. KaMin 35B is used principally in water-based adhesives, paints, inks or where low surface area is important.

KaMin 611: High brightness, fine particle size kaolin clay with moderate water demand. KaMin 611 is ideally suited for water-borne paint, ink, and adhesive applications where high gloss and holdout are important.

KaMin 80: Economical, general purpose water-washed kaolin, with intermediate brightness. It is suitable for use in water-borne, solvent-borne and solvent-free paint, ink, and adhesive applications.

KaMin 80B: Economical, general purpose water washed kaolin, with intermediate brightness. It is suitable for use in water-borne paint, ink, and adhesive applications. Also available in slurry form.

KaMin 90: High brightness, fine particle size, general-purpose filler with moderate water demand. KaMin 90 is ideally suited for solvent and water-borne paint, ink and adhesive applications where high gloss, holdout and controlled rheology are important.

KaMin 90B: High brightness, fine particle size, general-purpose filler with moderate water demand. KaMin 90B is ideally suited for water-borne applications where high gloss, holdout and controlled rheology are important. Also available in slurry form.

KaMin HG: Economical, general purpose, water-washed kaolin with fine particle size and intermediate brightness. It is suitable for water borne paint, ink and adhesive applications. Also available in slurry form.
