Talc in Paper

Talc Powder of Avani Group of Industries is the powdered form of Magnesium Silicate. It possesses several physical and mechanical properties which uniquely suit Paper manufacturing. Following is a snapshot of how Paper industry finds use for Talc powder:

  • Powdered Talc is soft and chemically inert. As a result, it lowers abrasion to paper machine fabrics and mechanical tools during the production phase.
  • Talc is hydrophobic (water-repellent) and organophilic in nature. Thus, its presence in the pulp reduces tackiness arising from stickies like plant resins. Subsequently, it provides pitch control by preventing agglomeration on production machinery.
  • Besides detackification capability, Talc is also lamellar (platy and layered) in structure. Hence, it even spread across the surface and reduces spots, defects and holes in the final output of paper.
  • Talc enhances printability of the finished paper by improving important characteristics such as scuff resistance, ink gloss and optimum ink transfer. Additionally, print mottling is reduced by the used of Talc in.
  • Using finely micronized Talc contributes to a smoother finish, which improves quality of printed images.
  • Opacity of Talc enhances opacity of the resulting paper. In turn, paper with good opacity assures legibility of printed text or images on both sides of paper.
  • Whiteness of Talc improves whiteness of the resulting paper. Firstly, this boosts the colour of printed matter. Secondly, the colour of paper (specially craft paper) itself is optimized.
