Shaheen understands the need for quality products and caters to various demands by offering a variety of products with different particle sizes, whiteness & structural differences. Our aim is to boost the performance of our products in your application in terms of hiding or coverage when applied on a surface to hide what is underneath while reducing your cost of production.
Opacity in Decorative Paints
Reduction in formulation cost while improving the product performance is the main target. With our ultrafine ground calcium carbonate grades, we have introduced saving of titanium dioxide in decorative paints. Apart from other additives, influencing the opacity of a film such as TiO2 (Titanium Dioxide) and Pigments, the mineral filler plays a crucial role. Shaheen provides viable solutions for your formulations while keeping your cost to a minimum.
