Calofort®
Category: Additives for coatings
Description:

Calofort® ultrafine precipitated calcium carbonate (pcc) products are characterized by high surface area, controlled particle shape and high whiteness and are commonly used to modify rheology and reinforce in a variety of polymer systems.

Typical Use:
  • Polyurethane, polysulfide, and other polymer based sealant systems
  • Solvent based paints and primers; as an antisettling filler
  • PVC plastisols, modified silicone polymer, silicone, 2K polyurethane, polysulfide and other sealant formulations
