Muscovite mica range
Natural barrier protection
Solvent- and water-based primers need superior stain blocking. Our range of highly lamellar Muscovite micas is designed to improve barrier protection over time, significantly limiting stain migration.
Cost-effective and easy to formulate, the Muscovite mica range includes Muscovite Mica C4000, WG 325, Suzorite 325-G, Suzorite 500-C and Mica MU. All are highly lamellar and micronized, with high aspect ratios. Due to this high lamellarity, they provide excellent stain blocking performance in primer applications.
Mica MU is a highly lamellar, micronized muscovite mica grade with a 20µm top cut that improves barrier protection over time – significantly limiting stain migration. It also enhances adhesion and anti-cracking properties and improves UV protection in paints.
We recommend Mica MU M2/1 additive for solvent- and water-based primer applications requiring superior stain-blocking, or for superior stain blocking in finishing paints, try our SteaShield 10 ultra lamellar talc* grade.
Mica MU products are derived from naturally occurring, chemically inert minerals that are ground to achieve a specific particle distribution size. Our products are exempt from EU REACH registration and compliant with EU ecolabel criteria governing organic paints.
