Jetfine 1H is a high purity, microcrystalline talc suitable for coatings applications requiring high brightness and a 7+Hegman top size. Jetfine 1H is beneficial in architectural and industrial coatings at additive levels for titanium dioxide spacing without compromising paint optical or durability properties. Typical applications include: Industrial topcoats: Jetfine 1H provides high gloss, high whiteness, and excellent titanium dioxide spacing for maximum opacity at a minimal raw material cost. Corrosion resistance and gloss retention are excellent with typical urethane and modified alkyd industrial coatings resins. Polyester gelcoats: Jetfine 1H provides a clean, white color, ease-of-dispersion, shear-thinning rheology, excellent polishing and patching properties, and good film reinforcement properties. High % PVC waterborne paints: Jetfine 1H provides a unique combination of dry hiding, low sheen, and film whiteness. Examples are ceiling paints and ceiling tile coatings. Talc Tip: Frozen car door seals - In icy weather, rub talc on your car door seals to prevent the doors from frosting up.
