SteaShield® 10

Exceptional barrier properties in stain-blocking paints and corrosion resistant coatings.

Exceptional barrier properties with SteaShield 10

Ultra-lamellar SteaShield 10 talc confers exceptional barrier properties to stain-blocking paints and corrosion resistant coatings, including coil and epoxy coatings while adding a range of other functional benefits.

Made from highly lamellar talcs*, SteaShield 10 talc has a specific particle shape and distribution that creates a physical barrier to protect the paint substrate from stain migration but also by impairing the diffusion of water through the film and enhancing corrosion resistance

In corrosion-resistant coatings, SteaShield 10 provides excellent barrier properties with high salt-spray resistance. Easy to formulate, SteaShield 10 talc also minimizes settling and can be used in coil and epoxy coatings.

For stain-blocking finishing paints, SteaShield 10 talc improves barrier protection over time, significantly limiting stain migration. It functions well with solvent and water-based systems, enhancing anti-cracking, adhesion and UV protection in paints. 

Steashield 10 talc is a naturally occurring, chemically inert mineral that is ground to achieve a specific particle distribution size. No additives are used in our processes, so Steashield 10 talc is exempt from EU REACH registration and compliant with EU ecolabel criteria.
