Cost optimization The use of minerals in adhesive and sealant formulations provides potential cost optimization over process and material costs
Along with improving various properties, Imerys Minerals are used in adhesives and sealants to optimize formulation cost. Normally, minerals would provide cost optimization by reducing raw material cost, but it can also impact manufacturing cost.
For example, with better dispersion and lower moisture it can reduce processing time while improving storage stability and thus minimize recycling of aged products.
Cost optimization is achieved through:
- Improving processing time
- Replacing expensive resins and additives, such as fumed silica
- Reducing cost of recycling
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.
