High whiteness – at lower costs
Cutting down the amount of titanium dioxide in your thermoplastic sheeting or film can create big cost savings. We’ve designed a product range that can effectively extend your titanium dioxide without impacting the quality of your final product.
Opacilite Ultra is a high whiteness flash calcined kaolin we produce with a patented rapid-heating process. Used in combination with TiO2, Opacilite Ultra maintains colour and opacity, and imparts low specific gravity, while lowering the overall cost of your compound.
The rapid-heating technique creates large numbers of tiny sealed voids within the clay particles, resulting in:
- Excellent opacifying properties
- High whiteness
- Low specific gravity
Opacilite Ultra is suitable for the partial replacement of TiO2 in linear low-density polyethylene, high-density polyethylene and polystyrene polymers.
