KAOPOLITE SF an hydrous aluminum silicate, the original gentle abrasive, is used worldwide in superior polishes and dentifrices.

KAOPOLITE SF disperses readily in both water- and organic solvent-based formulations. Its fine particle size and unique structure promotes good suspension in most liquid systems and allows it to pass easily through aerosolvalves. The carefully controlled water and oil demand properties of KAOPOLITE SF ensure consistent formulated products.

KAOPOLITE SF exhibits low absorptivity and is compatible with amine-functional silicones. When combined with harsher abrasives, KAOPOLITE SF shows a pronounced and beneficial gentling effect.
