Product Focus - Neogen MX

An Improved optical performance engineered calcined kaolin for architectural coatings

NeoGen MX is structured calcined kaolin designed to provide excellent optical performance at lower sheen value in flat or lower sheen trade sales coatings application. The key features included in NeoGen MX is higher brightness, better tint strength and touchup performance in eggshell to high PVC based architectural coatings. NeoGen MX is recommended for use in interior/exterior architectural coatings where lower sheen, better touchup and higher scrub resistance performance is required.

Product Focus - THERMA-PRINT™ 400

THERMA-PRINT™ 400 is a high brightness, calcined kaolin for thermal paper coatings. It is made via a precisely controlled thermal process using a select kaolin feed. The resulting product has a controlled pore structure that maximizes the microporosity. THERMA-PRINT™ 400 is designed to provide the right coating and surface structure for thermal transfer and direct thermal coated printing papers. THERMA-PRINT™ 400 improves coverage, ink absorbency and print properties.
