 Information Profile @ a Glance  
  • Talc is the world’s softest mineral. Although all talc ores are soft, platy, water repellent and chemically inert, no two talcs are quite the same.
  • Talc is a  metamorphic mineral resulting from the alteration of silicates of magnesium such as pyroxenes, amphiboles, olivine and other similar minerals.
  • Talc is practically insoluble in water and in weak acids and alkalis.  It is neither explosive nor flammable.
  • Talc’s melting point is at 1500°C.
  • Talc is used commercially because of its fragrance retention, luster, purity, softness, and whiteness.  
  • Major markets for talc are ceramics, paint, paper, and plastics.
  • A coarse grayish-green talc has been called  soapstone or steatite and has been used for stoves, sinks, electrical switchboards, etc.
  •  Talc is used in baby powder, an astringent powder used for preventing rashes on the area covered by a diaper. Most tailor's  chalk is talc, as is the chalk often used for welding or metalworking.
  • Speciality talc can improve the
    performance of biological wastewater treatment plants.
  • The exposed talc is  extracted using shovels.Sorting the different talc ores according to their talc content and brightness is a key phase of the production process.
  • To obtain just the right particle size distribution curve and top cut for a given application, the techniques used include compressed air, steam and impact grinding.
  • Talc powder is delivered in bags, semi-bulk bags or in bulk. Increasingly, there is a demand for talc in pellet form or as a liquid (slurry).
  • Micronization significantly
    reduced the particle size of the talc powder, namely from MMADs ranging from 6.0 to 6.9 μm in baby powder to 2.7 and 3.2 μm in the micronized talc used in the NTP
  • The U.S. Food and Drug Administration(FDA)considers non-asbestiform talc, that is talc which DOES NOT contain carcinogenic asbestos fibers, to be Generally Recognized As Safe(GRAS) for use in cosmetics.
  • Present annual world talc production is about 5.5 million tonnes, extracted from some 250 deposits scattered across the globe.
  • Production of talc is an approximately $100 million per year industry in the U.S.
  • Canada remained the major destination for U.S. talc exports, accounting for about 45% of the tonnage.
  • Finland is the biggest talc producer in Europe, and also a significant talc exporter.
