NYCO wollastonite is a versatile and highly valued reinforcement for a wide array of plastic composites.
Its acicularity (aspect ratio) and controlled particle size distribution provide an excellent balance of physical properties to meet today’s reinforced composite engineering requirements. Its chemical composition and controlled product length to diameter makes it an ideal mineral reinforcement for engineering polymers, alloys and blends including thermoplastic polyolefins and thermoset composites. NYCO’s product portfolio offers specific benefits, which include an increase in flexural modulus and heat distortion temperature, and a lower CLTE (coefficient of linear thermal expansion) with excellent cold temperature impacts. Wollastonite inherently provides excellent surface appearance in natural, painted or molded color applications.
Through our industry-leading chemical modification technology, products can be additionally tailored to provide enhanced physical and processing properties to meet today’s stringent demand for performance.
