Talc is a common seen silicate mineral that belonging to the trioctahedral mineral, its structural formula is (Mg6) [Si8] O20(OH)4. Talc is a hydrothermally altered mineral and contains asbestos, generally in lumpy, leafy, fibrous, or radial, with a very soft and smooth feel. In this paper we will provide you with the talc powder solution.
The Applications of Talc
Talc has the excellent physical and chemical properties of lubricity, anti-adhesion, flow aid, fire resistance, acid resistance, insulation, high melting point, chemical inactivity, good hiding power, softness, good gloss, and strong adsorption. Therefore, it has a diverse applications in the industries of cosmetics, medicine, papermaking, plastics, and etc.
It is used in various emollient powder, beauty powder, talcum powder, etc. , with the function of blocking infrared rays, thus to enhance the sun-proof and anti-infrared property of cosmetics.
·Medicine and food industries
Additives for pharmaceutical tablets, pharmaceutical powders (such as acaphenol powder), sugar coatings, gardenia powder and traditional Chinese medicine prescriptions, food additives, release agents, etc. Featuring non-toxic, tasteless, high whiteness, good tolerance, strong gloss, soft taste, strong smoothness.
After being processed by talc grinding machine, it is used for white extender pigment and various water-based, oil-based, resin industrial coatings, primers, protective paints, etc., to enhance product shape stability.
·Paper making industry
It is used as filler for paper and cardboard, and wood pitch control agent. It makes paper smooth and delicate , save raw materials, and improve the service life of grease nets.
It is used as filler for plastics such as polypropylene, nylon, polyvinyl chloride, polyethylene, polystyrene and polyester. Increasing tensile strength, shear strength, flexural strength, compressive strength, and reduce deformation.
It is used as rubber filler and anti-sticking agent for rubber products. Increasing the stability of product shape, increase strength of tension, shear, bend, and compression.
It is used for cable rubber additive, cable isolator.
It is used in manufacturing electric porcelain, radio porcelain, various industrial ceramics, building ceramics, daily ceramics and enamels. With the features of no discoloration at high temperature, increased whiteness after calcination, even density, good gloss and smooth surface.
It is used for waterproof membrane, waterproof coating, waterproof ointment, etc.
