Kaolin Clay

KaolinKaolin is a hydrated aluminum silicate crystalline mineral formed over millions of years by the decomposition and weathering of granite. It is one of the most abundant minerals on earth, it is characterized by its fine particle shape and chemical inertness. Wolf partners with one of the world’s largest producers of high quality kaolin and ships from across North America. Such a wide range of high quality kaolin reserves is unique.

Wolf also sells one of the industry’s broadest portfolios of kaolin products, prepared in a variety of forms. They are used in applications as diverse as cosmetics and skin care; to wire & cable systems for improved dielectric and physical properties; or in paint and coatings; rubber compounds; or as polishing agents in auto care products. Various processes are used by our supplier to enhance the properties of kaolin deposits. Kaolins can be airfloat, hydrous, de-laminated or calcined pigments.

Metastar 501

Technical Data Sheet
40-200 Data Sheet

Metastar 501 is a premium metakaolin produced by very carefully controlled calcination. It has been engineered with a high level of pozzolanic reactivity when used in portland cement-based concrete, plaster, and mortar. When MetaStar 501 metakaolin is used, it can react with the free lime by-product of portland cement hydration to form cementitious calcium silicate and calcium aluminate products, whichcan result in overall improved durability. Unlike other pozzolanic materials such as silica fume, fly ash, and blast-furnace slag, MetaStar 501 metakaolin will not darken white or gray cement-based applications. The use of this engineered metakaolinin mortar, cement, and plaster can increase chemical resistance, compressive and flexural strengths andcan reduce permeability. In addition, MetaStar 501 metakaolin can aid in reducing alkali silica reactions. MetaStar 501 is found in applications such as:
