PIGMENT EXTENDER AND FLATTENING AGENT


PIALITE Paint Filler
is produced from a siliceous mineral of volcanic origin geologically knows as perlite. Explosion of refined ore particles, followed by heat processing and unique milling and air classification system gives PIALITE paint filler a grit-free particle size distribution for maximum effect as pigment extender and flattening agent for paints.


PIALITE Paint Filler is inert and is insoluble in water, acids, and mild alkalies. It is not a chemical compound. It is an amorphous mineral consisting of a fused sodium potassium aluminum silicate, analyzing approximately 71% SiO2, 18% Al203, 7% K20, and 2% CaO.

 

APPLICATION FEATURES.


COMBINED FILM SMOOTHNESS AND FLATTENING EFFECIENCY


PIALITE Paint finds its application in all kinds of equipment including modern dispersion equipment for more critically formulated paints manufactured at high production rates. The balance of fineness and flattening efficiency is achieved by its unique ability to be subjected to over grinding in high shear or impact equipment with no resultant loss in efficiency of gloss and sheen control.


INCREASED BODY

The high oil absorption capacity of PIALITE Paint Filler results in increased body in liquid formulation which does not vary during the paint’s life. PIALITE Paint Filler imparts a certain amount of thixotropy, thus is a valuable aid in maintaining a stable suspension.


LOW COST/HIGH HIDING POWER

By substituting PIALITE Paint Filler for such extenders as magnesium silicate, etc., it is possible to save as much as 20% to 30% of expensive primer pigment and still maintain a dry hiding power equal to or better than the original formulation using other extenders.


ANY DEGREE OF FLATNESS

Addition of PIALITE Paint Filler to any paint formulation in percentages of 20% to 30% by weight of pigment can obtain any desired degree of flatness.


STRONG ADHESION

Irregularity of particle shape of PIALITE Paint Filler imparts strong adherence of the paint film to any surface. Maximum adhesion is assured with minimum surface preparation.


EASY UNIFORM APPLICATION

PIALITE Paint Filler’s exceptionally high absorptive capacity keeps under control the heavy oil in paints which tend to cause a pull under the brush. The resultant consistently is ideal for smooth, easy, application and good flow and leveling properties. The elimination of low angle sheen as well as gloss enables any application technique to produce a rich uniform flat finish without lapping.
