Technical Datasheet | Supplied by Imerys
Opacilite™ is a high whiteness calcined kaolin with good dry hiding properties. It is produced by Imerys by a special rapid heating process which creates tiny, sealed voids within the kaolin particles, resulting in low specific gravity and outstanding opacifying properties. The presence of these sealed voids differentiates it from conventional calcined kaolins. Providing durability and exceptional opacity both above and below the CPVC of a coating, Opacilite™ serves as the first choice for titanium dioxide extension in high quality matt and silk paints. It is a naturally-sourced mineral product allowing significant cost savings.
