The Raw Material Talc

Talc is not just a raw material of one kind: every occurrence on earth has its own geology, which was formed millions of years ago. As a natural raw material, talc usually occurs in combination with at least one other raw material.

Let's talc applications.


Paper & Pulp

Sliding your fingertips over a simple sheet of coated paper reveals after a few moments: talc is involved here. Cellulose products such as towels, packaging or modern disposable dishes also acquire their characteristic physical properties not least through talc from AIHAI. Mainly used for modification in the production of paper and cellulose, talc can do a lot more: as a filler, it provides special characteristics of demanding paper types and improves the haptic and technical profiles of the end products thanks to binding properties, as well as the high lamellarity, especially in recycling processes.


Paints & Coatings

Almost everything that you touch, use or look at on an everyday basis owes its properties to the use of talc. From the cereal bowl to the smartphone cover to the water-repellent all-weather clothing or brightly coloured toys that are particularly sturdy and easy to keep in order: talc is the indispensable raw material that gives reliable coatings their physical characteristics and bright colours lasting brilliance.

Paints and coatings play a significant role in heavy duty application, achieving a higher degree of sturdiness, being significantly longer lasting and weather-resistant, especially in the industrial field as well as aircrafts and vessels.



Plastics & Rubbers

Talc is put to use in the automotive industry, in its exterior mirror housings and rrubber tyres, in order to improve resistance and take advantage of the natural both soft and durable properties of talc. Besides using talc in the automotive industry, appliances become sturdier and resistant to higher temperatures, which are two of many important factors in the manufacturing of white goods such as fridges, washing machines, kitchen stoves and many more. Home appliances simplify our daily routines, make our life safer and the covers of household devices containing talc are aesthetically pleasing.
