Kaogloss : This product is a No. 1 particle sized clay made for higher gloss applications. The low viscosity, good brightness, and fine particle size make it particularly useful for coatings requiring smoothness, printability, uniform ink receptivity and opacity.

Kaobrite: This is a No. 2 intermediate particle sized coating clay designed for medium finish, high or low solids machine or off machine coating. It is excellent for size press operations or filler applications when brightness and opacity need additional improvement. It is widely used in publication grades of paper and base coat in recycled board.

Kaofine: This product is a No. 1 ultra fine particle size clay produced from East Georgia. Kaofine is recommended for paper and paperboard applications requiring maximum gloss development and excellent high shear rheology.
