Use of kaolin clay in aqueous barrier coating applications, TAPPI Journal November 2023
Application: This research suggests that cost effective aqueous barrier coatings can be prepared using various kaolin clays to partially substitute for more expensive latex binder components. The barrier properties can be improved using a wide range of kaolin clays, but the use of high aspect ratio clay provides superior performance at reduced coat weight. This research can be utilized to decide a maximum or minimum clay loading to maintain differ-ent types of target barrier performance, as well as blocking and heat seal properties, in a single layer coating system.
