Notes

Glacier 200 platy talc is the filler or extender of choice in dark-colored paints and primers, and for many other applications without high brightness requirements. Cyprus offers Glacier 200 at a substantial cost savings compared with higher brightness talcs.

Materials Talc
Typecodes Flux Source
Materials that source Na2O, K2O, Li2O, CaO, MgO and other fluxes but are not feldspars or frits. Remember that materials can be flux sources but also perform many other roles. For example, talc is a flux in high temperature glazes, but a matting agent in low temperatures ones. It can also be a flux, a filler and an expansion increaser in bodies.
Hazards Talc Hazards Overview
Talc is invaluable in the ceramics industry, it is used as a glaze and body ingredient and as a parting a release agent in various processes. Is it safe?
