Welcome to Imerys Performance Minerals

Adhesion

Adhesion Imerys minerals can demonstrate a positive effect on adhesion

In several adhesive and sealant systems, Imerys minerals demonstrate a positive effect on adhesion by taking advantage of unique shape, size distributions and surface chemistry. It seems that use of such minerals tend to allow extension of the resin dispersions and adhesion promoter for optimal effect.

Kaolin

Our fine platy particle kaolins provide higher interaction sites for adhesion.  In starch and synthetic resin systems, kaolins improve flow characteristics, penetration, adhesion, and dry time.

We recommend:

  • Hydrite® SB100
  • Glomax® LL

Wollastonite

Calcium silicate chemistry provides higher adhesion to a hydrophilic surface.

We recommend:

  • Nyad® M400
  • Nyad® G
  • Wollastocoat®

Carbonate

A fine particle size and control surface chemistry of calcium carbonate allows efficient use of adhesive promoters which enhance surface to substrate adhesion.

We recommend:

  • Microwhite® 100
  • Gamaco®
  • Atomite®
  • Kotamite®
  • CS-11
  • Camelwite®
  • Calwhite®

We offer a full range of custom formulation and technical and process support services to help you match the right mineral grade to your application requirement.
