Soapstone / Talc is magnesium silicate powder. It has major applications in many industries.
According to the application and industries we offer a wide range of soapstone powder.
IN PLASTIC INDUSTRY
High quality ultra fine talc is used in polypropylene, polyamides, cable PVC and other plastic compounds. Talc is being increasingly used in HDPE, PP, LDPE, PVC, ABS & thermosetting compounds. It is excellent filler due to blending characteristics and thermal and electrical resistant. It is chemically inert. It provides the smooth feel to plastic surface. Due to its chemical inertness, superior electrical and thermal resistance and other properties talc imparts stiffness, hardness, tensile strength of plastic products, improves quality of their surfaces, gives them electrical, chemical and thermal resistance.
Suggested grades- Talc E.W.K : Talc 777 : Talc 888 : Talc 999
IN PAINT INDUSTRIES
Soap stone/French chalk/Steatite and Talc are synonymous which are used in production of decorative paints, industrial coatings, pigment pastes, primers, enamels, adhesives, putties and other products of the industry. It is used as a matting agent and also gives smooth finish to your paint.

IN PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRIES
In pharmaceuticals talc is used as filler in tablets, ointments and dustings. Talc used in this industry must be highly pure, bacteria free, must contain no iron oxide, dolomite, carbon and other impurities.
Suggested Grade: Talc special
IN PAPER INDUSTRY
Soap stone powder (Talc) is used in three stages of paper making -as a filler, to control pitch and stickiest and in paper coating. During the paper making process, the micro impurities can clog the paper machinery. Talc being hydrophobic absorbs these micro droplets thus controlling their stickiness and avoiding clogging. High brightness of talc leads to reduction in usage of expensive whitening agents and helps in controlling gloss of the coat. Talc gives smoothness, yellow index, porosity, and opacity to paper, improves its yellow index and reduces the deterioration of the machinery. Our grades of Talc powder are in wide range for Paper industries.
Suggested grades : Soapstone Delux Micro : S.S-20 : E.W.K : 777
Besides all above uses Soap stone/Talc is also widely used in Toilet Soap manufacturing, Cosmetic industries in baby talc powder, Detergent manufacturing, Dal mills (Pulses polishing), Textile, Printing Ink, Rubber industry and as a filler raw material in many chemical industries
