X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy indorses that the LA Glass calcium aluminosilicate powders contain no crystalline silica and are fully amorphous. LA Glass powders improve a wide range of plastics, paints, adhesives, and coatings. Stain/scrub resistance, tint retention, and high consistent brightness can be attained in most coating and paint systems. LA Glass powders can be effortlessly dispersed in solvent- or water- based systems and has low oil absorption (22). LA-300 has a specific gravity of 2.45, a bulk density of 50 lb/ft3, a pH of 10.5, and a refractive index of 1.47 to 1.51.
