Talc has been used for so many different application for a very long time. In daily life, like cosmetics, body care, food, medicine and many more.
The industry is demanding increasingly high demands on the already high quality mineral through its special properties. Due to its lamellar structure, high opacity and high degree of whiteness, talcum is an ideal filler for paints, ceramics and plastics.
In particular, high quality standards are required for the plastics industry for the automotive sector and for the compounding world in general.
For talc, this means high levels of fineness and high delamination, which in turn means high strength.
In order to optimally transport the micronized mineral and to promote it in premixes for masterbatches, compacting the fine powder is almost essential.
