Eco-Phyl® Ideal for low and zero VOC interior and exterior decorative systems
- Improved matting and weather resistance
- Improved scrub resistance
- EC Ecolabel compliant
Eco-Phyl® -is a multi-functional filler for interior and exterior decorative paints which is ideal for the formulation of low- and zero-VOC systems. Eco-Phyl® enables formulators to diminish resin content, with the added advantage of reducing the overall environmental footprint of their products.
Eco-Phyl® is derived from a unique coalescence of mica, quartz and chlorite, known as leucophyllite.
It has a lamellar particle shape which improves the mechanical properties and weather resistance of paints and coatings.
A unique coalescence of mica, quartz & chlorite
Eco-Phyl® combines the attributes of each of its component minerals: the lamellarity of mica and chlorite with the hardness of quartz. It has no influence on viscosity and is easy to disperse in polar and non-polar systems. As it is chemically inert, it can be used in all types of resins.
Eco-Phyl® is recommended for indoor and outdoor decorative paint formulations.
In interior decorative paint formulations, Eco-Phyl®:
- Improves matting
- Significantly enhances scrub resistance
- Reduces cracking
- Enables resin reduction
In exterior decorative paint formulations, Eco-Phyl®:
- Improves crack resistance at higher film thickness
- Improves elasticity of the paint film
- Enhances long term weather resistance
- Reduces chalking
- Enhances color stability
Eco-Phyl® is compliant with EC Ecolabeling criteria for indoor and outdoor paints and varnishes (2014/312/EU).
EU REACh and Ecolabel
Eco-Phyl® is derived from naturally occurring, chemically inert minerals that are simply ground to achieve a specific particle distribution size. We do not use additives in our processes. As such, Eco-Phyl® products are exempt from EU REACH registration and compliant with EU Ecolabel criteria governing organic paints.
We offer a full range of bespoke formulation and technical and process support services to help you match the right mineral grade to your application requirement.
