Product category: Barium sulfate (barytes, blanc fixe)

Synthetic Barium Sulphate

Our brands “Basofix” for Whiter Shades and “Barigloss” for Darker Shades is an inspiring innovation from 20 MICRONS with an ultra-fine average particle size of 0.7 microns specially developed for paint, powder coating and pigments manufacturing application. Special production methods and various inorganic treatments now permit customized solutions for the most diverse range of problems/applications. The fine particle size imparts high gloss and coverage whereas the white color imparts excellent shade and brightness to the end product. Ultra-fine particle of Synthetic Barium Sulphate act as a spacer for prime pigments and hence contributes to the hiding with very high gloss in end application. It is totally inert under normal conditions, and possesses high resistance to outdoor exposure and to chemicals.

It has no influence on the viscosity, so it is possible to use precipitated Barium Sulfate to the highest percentage in the formulation. It has no effect on the gloss. Thus, precipitated Barium Sulfate help to reduce VOC and replaces the more expensive pigments, to reduce formulation costs and provide a good opportunity.

Oil absorption and specific surface area of carbon black and precipitated Barium Sulfate have a big difference, by flocculation resistance, effective role of black carbon can only be increased marginally, if use precipitated Barium Sulfate instead of lots of carbon black it will reduce the quantity of base demand and viscosity, and further will reduce the VOC.

Basofix minimizes the noise level is acoustic pipes due to its higher specific gravity and provides excellent sound dampening. Basofix Micro performs brilliantly in automotive and powder coatings with its ideal optical characteristics and also providing protection by being mechanically and chemically stable.

White Pigment Opacifier

Our “Lithomer” Series offers various products for diverse applications working on a magical chemistry that helps replace TiO2 in different systems upto 25% depending on the end formulation of the product.

An proprietary innovative White Pigment Opacifier made by revolutionary co-precipitation of white prime pigment with modified materials, in which air trapped tiny voids are generated on upper surface of particles.

Lithomer’s relative scattering, high lightness, neutral white color and its diffuse reflectance enable to replace substantial amount TiO2 in any type of finished product.

Earlier Lithopone was used as a partial replacement of Titanium Dioxide, in different formulations, but now use of Lithopone is restricted because of its inferior gloss retention and yellowing tendency on exposure.

Hence, 20 Microns came up with this unique chemistry in order to overcome the deficiencies of gloss retention and yellowing tendency of Lithopone.

Lithomer is an Engineered Pigmentary product and is then surface treated which offers excellent dispersibility in various systems where TiO2 is used.

The refractive Index of Lithomer is around 2.1 which are slightly lower to Titanium (2.7). Formulations for some of the products have been changed by incorporating Lithomer as a partial replacement of TiO2.

Lithomer works fundamentally in both ways as an individual Opacifier and also acts as spacer for prime pigments mainly for Titanium due to its fine and narrow particle size distribution. Use of Lithomer in formulations also reduces cost of product resulting in an effort to improving margin for the product.

Product category: Feldspars

Feldspar / Nepheline Syenite

Feldspars have both alkali and alumina content which makes them particularly valuable in industrial processes. Feldspar Alumino-Silicates act as a flux to lower the temperature of vitrification and provide alumina which promotes Hardness, Durability and Resistance to Chemical Corrosion in Ceramic Wares, Electrical Porcelain, and all types of Glass and Fiber Insulation. Feldspars play an important role as Fluxing Agents in Ceramics and Glass Production, and are also used as functional fillers in the Paint, Plastic, Rubber and Adhesive Industries.

Nepheline syenite is a quartz-free aluminium silicate consisting primarily of the Minerals Nepheline, Microcline and Albite. Because of its extremely low melting point and High Alumina Content, Nepheline Syenite is used as a Glass Phase Promoter, a Ceramic Flux and also as a functional filler in Paint, Plastics etc. Like Feldspar, Nepheline Syenite is used as a Flux in Tile, Sanitary Ware, Porcelain, Vitreous and Semi-Vitreous Bodies. It contributes High Alumina without associated free Silica in its raw form and fluxes to form silicates with free silica in bodies without contributing free silica itself. This stabilizes the expansion curve of the fired body. It is an excellent tile filler and melter, especially for fast firing. Nepheline Syenite is valuable in glass batches to achieve the lowest melting temperature while acting as a source of Alumina.

We procure Feldspar and Nepheline Syenite from the best available resources in India offering range of products with varying particle sizes and brightness catering to the diverse needs of our customers under brand name “Silfermin”.
