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. Using minerals in formulations not only reduces raw material costs, it can also impact manufacturing costs.
Cost optimization is achieved:
- Through an improvement in the flow of the mineral, increasing throughput on the dosing machine
- By replacing part of fumed silica, which is hydroscopic, difficult to dose (very fluffy), by PCC in plastisol formulations
- By optimizing batch production time, e.g. using certain low and constant moisture level Socal® and ImerSeal® grades shortens in situ drying time
- By reducing moisture scavenger usage with our low moisture grades.
