Geofortis' natural mineral products are valuable ingredients in paints and coatings.  Testing and product development by independent third party laboratories have demonstrated useful, value added properties.
  • Opacity.  TiO2 is one of the most expensive and widely needed pigments in coatings and is subject to dramatic price variations. Geofortis'  products can replace up to 60% of the TiO2 by volume in paint with no loss of opacity.
  • Abrasion and Scuff Resistance.  Geofortis' products are superior  in Taber Abrasion  and Wet Scrub tests when combined with TiO2 compared to TiO2 alone.
  • Economics and Performance Enhancement.  Geofortis products will reduce production costs while improving performance.
