Yuanlei Small Classroom | Composition and Advantages of Transparent Powder Filler



Transparent powder is a mixture of several non-metallic minerals, with high transparency, good whiteness, non-toxic, tasteless, acid and corrosion resistance. With high transparency, the refractive index of the filling material itself is very close to that of most synthetic resins, so the filling amount of the filler does not affect the transparency of the finished product; it can improve the surface smoothness and abrasion resistance of the product; low oil absorption, large filling amount, which is beneficial to reduce the manufacturing cost of the product.


Transparent powder is a common name in the coating industry. Although more than 50% of coating manufacturers use transparent powder more or less, there is no unified standard or method for what kind of powder transparent powder is. In fact, transparent powder is not a single powder, it is in addition to the main ingredients of natural mineral rock, but also add special synthetic accessories mixed grinding modified modulation. The main component is a composite silicate containing magnesium, aluminum and calcium, which is an inorganic salt, and contains some sulfates and impurities.



Transparent powder is a new type of functional transparent filling material, which has the characteristics of high transparency, good hardness, good hue, high gloss, good collapse resistance and less dust during use. Widely used in oily furniture paint, decoration paint, adhesives, inks, and plastics. At first, transparent powder was only used in oily wood paint. In a few years, the market reaction gradually changed from unfamiliar and understanding to cautious use and a large number of application stages. From a single paint industry to the paint industry, to the entire chemical industry.


Transparent powder is an inorganic filler. Its remarkable characteristics are: high transparency, high hardness, and high toughness, which greatly improves the quality of the paint film of the paint. Its use value is recognized by the paint industry, and some well-known companies have adopted it in large numbers. Transparent powder has good chemical stability, acid and alkali resistance, and does not contain toxic and harmful substances, allowing customers to use it at ease.


Transparent powder in the application, there are several small problems need to pay attention:


The 1. is that its high hardness and high toughness will cause the paint film to be difficult to polish, which needs to be changed from the concept, because the hardness and toughness increase, which means that the quality of the paint film is improved, and the relative polishing difficulty is also increased.

2. transparent powder is difficult to prevent settling. There are many successful experiences in the coating industry in the prevention of settling of pigments and fillers. Usually, there are two principles for preventing settling: one is longitudinal anti-settling and the other is horizontal anti-settling. As soon as the transverse and longitudinal cross, it will form a reticular structure with the best anti-settling effect. Of course, anti-settling is not absolute. When the paint is thin, there is still a tendency for transparent powder to sink compared with resin, because its specific gravity is larger than that of resin, so the spraying time is required to be adjusted appropriately.

3. some transparent powder on the market is very easy to absorb moisture, so the packaging must be moisture-proof.

Transparent powder as a kind of outstanding performance, more economical, environmental protection, the use of more secure functional transparent filling material, will bring a new pattern for the polymer material filling material industry.

Different applications and specifications of washed kaolin and calcined kaolin


Kaolin is a non-metallic mineral, which is a kind of clay and clay rock mainly composed of kaolinite clay minerals. Because it is white and delicate, also known as white earth. It is named after Gaoling Village, Jingdezhen, Jiangxi Province.
