Eco-Phyl

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.
