Altiplus is reportedly a cost-effective hydrous aluminum silicate filler. The material is chemically similar to kaolin clay but has a macro-crystalline platy structure and is available in a range of particle sizes. The platy structure and high dry/wet brightness can reportedly offer excellent reinforcing and barrier properties, as well as resin extender properties, in adhesives and sealants. 

The filler has a pH of 6.-6.5, thus reducing gelling in some adhesive formulations, as well as a low mohs hardness. The platy structure of Altiplus reportedly offers improved settling resistance and excellent barrier properties to a polymer system. It disperses in water- and solvent-based systems, offers low shrinkage, and has rheological and gap-filling properties in adhesive formulations.
