Our coating kaolin products for paper manufacturing are produced at the sites of Hirschau-Schnaittenbach and our subsidiary company Caminauer Kaolinwerk GmbH in Saxony. With its company Amberger Kaolinwerke the Quarzwerke Group has deposits with reserves for many decades and state-of-the-art production facilities. This has made us a reliable partner of the paper industry for a long period of time. Our outstanding coating kaolins have the reputation—especially for high-gloss paper grades—of being the optimal raw materials for good covering power with a high print gloss at the same time.
High product quality for high-grade paper production
Our primary deposits have kaolins with a high aspect ratio. The advantage: excellent fibre coverage can be achieved with this, even with a low coating weight. The main areas of application are therefore ULWC and LWC gravure printing. Coating kaolins are also used for precoat applications to improve their holdout—in interaction with other pigments.
