Talc is an inorganic powder manufactured by crushing an ore called talc. This smooth material has white and gray colors and an especially fatty feel.
It was generally called "wax stone" and has long been used for slate pencils and in toys.
The major characteristics of talc are the lowest hardness of all inorganic minerals, excellent heat resistance, and good chemical stability.

By utilizing these properties, it is used as an ideal filler material for an extensive range of applications.
