U.S. Silica has launched a newly engineered pigment for cementitious products and other building applications, underscoring its capacity to partially replace or augment other inorganic high-white compounds like titanium dioxide (TiO) and aluminum trihydrate. Finished in 1.3-, 2.4- or 5.8 average particle size grades, EverWhite Pigment features hardness and durability properties mirroring the functionality of high performing agents like TiO, plus consistent, premium, bright-white formulations.
“Customers have been able to reduce the amount of TiO they’re using by up to 50 percent, which has resulted in significant cost savings,” says U.S. Silica President, Industrial & Specialty Products Zach Carusona. “EverWhite Pigment disperses more easily, the bright-white color maintains its quality, and the flexibility in opacity helps with the depth effect of products.”
“We think EverWhite Pigment provides customers with an exceptional alternative to other inorganic white pigments. As a domestically sourced product, it offers more reliable access and meaningful cost savings,” adds CEO Bryan Shinn. “This is another example of U.S. Silica’s commitment to innovation, our customer-focused approach, and our desire to deliver value across the markets we serve.”
