The Mississippi Lime Magnum Gloss® PCC family of powder products is designed for both the coatings and paper markets. For coatings, Magnum Gloss® PCC provides a superior level of gloss and brightness in satin and semi-gloss paints as well as industrial coatings. The significantly higher gloss is due in part to the tightly controlled particle range. Magnum Gloss® PCC can be also used in glossy, high brightness coated paper and board applications. Due to tightly controlled particle size range, Magnum Gloss® PCC will provide significantly higher sheet gloss than other calcium carbonates. Additionally, Magnum Gloss® products can provide improvements in gloss, opacity, brightness, ink receptivity and runnability on the coater – all of which combine to make this a clearly exceptional product.
There are two types of Magnum Gloss® Powder manufactured at our plant in Ste. Genevieve, MO:
