High Zinc dust prices: cost savings!!
Tue, 14. Mar. 2017

Because of the fact that the Zinc dust price increased about more than 50% during the last months, we would like to present the possibility to save costs by replacing a part of Zinc dust in Zinc rich coatings by micronized MIOX®. Compared with the current Zinc price, which is already above 3 EUR/kg, the cost savings are around 30% with this partial replacement. The facts at a glance are:

- A replacement up to 50% by mass is possible, our recommendation is 30%
- The replacement rate is 1:1
- There is no change in the anti-corrosive performance
- The technical advantages are a better adhesion on the substrate and a reduction of Zinc salt building
- Product recommendations are: MIOX® Micro 30/40/50 for grey applications, MIOX® Micro 20/15/10 for ultrathin reddish applications


Please do not hesitate to contact us (g.kert@kmi.at), if you have some additional questions, we would be happy to assist you; also if you need some samples.

Extension of our HLP product ranges
Mon, 18. Jun. 2012

Based on customer requirements, KMI decided to extend its product ranges for the product HLP ( high lamellar Phlogopite) in the direction of higher fineness. Therefore the finest available Phlogopite product is now MICA HLP 5, with a d98 of <15µm and a d50 of 5µm. Due to the special grinding processes, these products are available as usual with high aspect ratio. Now it is possible to use these fine products for application in thin-film applications e.g. ultra thin plastic films – where they are used as mechanically reinforcing as well as barrier mineral. For detailed information please see our data sheet.

Shrinkage and warpage reduction
KMI's MICA Phlogopite
Mon, 04. Jun. 2012

Polyamide is often reinforced by glass fiber which leads to the problem of anisotropic shrinkage and therewith the risk of warpage. Glass spheres are often used to avoid that effect but with a negative impact on mechanical properties and heat distortion temperature.
With KMI’s Phlogopite in combination with glass fiber that challenge can be solved. Reinforcement is provided with a high heat distortion temperature and optimal mechanical properties without warpage. Mica has a significant influence on the shrinkage; it reduces the overall shrinkage and balances the anisotropism compared to the pure glass fiber compound and compared to the addition of glass spheres as well; also HDT is higher and mechanical properties are ideal.
