Caulks, Putties and other Chemistries

Imerys supplies a wide range of mineral solutions suitable for improving the properties of caulks, putties, hotmelts, butyl seals and bitumen membranes.

Imerys minerals: 

  • Improve sandability due to their natural softness
  • Improve adhesion
  • Enhance elasticity and cracking resistance
  • Improve rheology
  • Improve storage stability
  • Make spreading easier
  • Extend pot life
  • Are natural, environmentally friendly solutions

Putties

Our Drikalite®, #8 White® , Microwhite® 100 and Camelwite® ground calcium carbonates (GCC) are cost-effective extender solutions for putties.

Body Fillers

Imerys has a range of minerals such as Kaolin and Mica which are excellent fillers for polyester putties and automotive body fillers as well as excellent multifunctional fillers in polyester mastics. 

We recommend:

  • NeoGen® 2000
  • 4-K

 

Hotmelt adhesives

Our GSP-30 ground calcium carbonate (GCC) and Paragon (Air Float Kaolin)  are cost-effective solutions, prized for the low decantation properties they offer to hot melt adhesives.

Butyl mastics

We recommend our cost-effective PolCarb® GCC range and Luzenac soft talc solutions for butyl sealants. Luzenac is particularly recommended for their anti-scratch properties in IG glazing primary seals.

Bitumen membranes

Bitumen is an effective glue and unlike most glues is 100% waterproof.  Bituminous membranes are perfect for waterproofing roofs, basements, below ground structures, bridges and other structures.

We recommend:

  • Saca B and Sac 200Z  kaolin ranges provide superior oil absorption and sound damping in bitumen membranes
  • SuperSeal® an air float kaolin offers excellent rheology control
  • 60-S, 40-S, 20-L, 350PO and 325HK mica range provides flatness and barrier properties
  • #10 white GCC provides reflectivity and improves rheological control

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.
