Nicron 403


Nicron 403 is high purity microcrystalline talc. The lamellar nature of Nicron 403 enhances film strength and flexibility
and provides barrier properties in architectural and industrial primers and topcoats to improve corrosion resistance and
stain-blocking ability.

Nicron 403 is also used in paints to improve sag resistance and maximize prime pigment extension. Nicron 403 is used in solid color and semi-transparent wood stains to prevent tannin bleed and improve gloss uniformity without introducing abrasive characteristics.

Nicron 403 could also be used in plastics as a cost-effective reinforcing agent to improve stiffness, HDT and dimensional stability.
