Acti-Min PG air-float kaolin reinforcing filler is selectively mined and processed to provide greater TiO 2 replacement and higher gloss and sheen control compared to water-washed kaolins – and at a lower cost. It’s most useful in white rubber compounds and sealants caulks paint coatings and primers that are off-white and tinted.

Indeed Heath et al. 2014 quoted that 1.16 tonnes of kaolin are required to yield 1 tonne of metakaolin compared to 1.6 tonnes of limestone and clay to produce Portland cement. Furthermore kaolin mining in the United Kingdom produces large quantities of waste and can impact local aquatic environments Thurlow 2005 cited in Heath et al. 2014 .
Mining in Cornwall and Devon in the southwest of England began in the early Bronze Age around 2150 BC. Tin and later copper were the most commonly extracted metals. Some tin mining continued long after the mining of other metals had become unprofitable but ended in the late 20th century.
