Vertal® Your cost effective solution for interior and exterior latex paints
• Reduced formulation costs
• Improved opacity and stain blocking
• Film reinforcement
Vertal® products are highly lamellar (platy), multi-functional, cost-effective mineral pigments that improve the performance and reduce the formulated costs of interior and exterior latex paints and primers.
Using Vertal® products can offer coating formulators the following performance advantages:
Opacity and stain hiding
Vertal® mineral pigments improve TiO2 distribution in the bulk paint film and across the %PVC spectrum keeping formulated costs at a minimum while optimizing the effectiveness of expensive prime pigmentation.
Barrier properties and stain-blocking
The unique, lamellar morphology of Vertal® talcs provide improved barrier properties for interior and exterior waterborne primer/sealer applications. They increase coating hydrophobicity, reduce permeability, and reduce bleed-through of stains and salts that cause further discoloration failure of topcoats and enamels.
Vertal® platy talcs provide improved film reinforcement and dimensional stability to coatings for additional protection against grain-cracking and mud cracking.
Vertal® mineral pigments are low binder-demand talc products that disperse readily in waterborne systems with a minimum viscosity build.
