ALUMINIUM SILICATE

Aluminium Silicate is light weight and super white in color. It is having high degree of brightness, low plasticity, ease of diepersion. It is having low bulk density and very low moisture content. It improves electrical as well as mechanical properties. It can partially replace TiO2 to give cost reduction. It improves brightness of white pigments. It acts as a good anti-setting agent. It maintain constant viscosity on storage.
