This paper covers the effect of shear by a sigma blade kneader on the optical properties of a given filler clay. The object was to produce a delaminated clay with an appropriate particle size distribution that would give improved optical properties over the original filler clay and possibly another conventional coating clay at the same particle size distribution as the sheared clay.
