Halloysite Nano Clay
Halloysite clay is used to produce china. The clay can be used as a suspension agent in ceramic glaze preparations. It is used as a catalyst in motor vehicle exhaust systems to clean up exhaust gases. Other uses include time-release capsules, dissolving over time to release antifouling paint, antiscalants, herbicides, pest repellants, and other agents that could benefit from a controlled release.
Niche applications include carriers of active ingredients in paints, coatings, and building materials, agricultural applications, and high-performance fillers in plastic composites.
The main target markets for halloysite are: nanocomposites, high-performance polymer reinforcement, controlled release of biological and chemical agents, and advanced ceramics
Halloysite Clay TSCA (SARA Title III) Status: Unknown
