Lithocoat® Your ideal solution for matte offset printing papers

Our Lithocoat® product has been specifically designed for matte offset printing papers.


  • Solves ink scuff problems in papers with a high calcium carbonate content
  • Provides a silky feel to matt paper, improving readability and touch
  • Provides a matt effect (lower sheet gloss, higher print gloss) 
  • Controls ink drying speed, decreasing print mottle and improving opacity 

By adapting particle distribution size, we can tailor our talcs to provide the right level of matt or semi- finish to meet your paper mills individual requirements. 

Lithocoat® is also an excellent solution for solid board coatings.
