Sealant strips and other Chemistries
Imerys supplies a wide range of mineral solutions suitable for improving the properties of hotmelts, butyl / EPDM sealant strips, solvent based adhesives and bitumen membranes.
- 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
Our PolCarb™, ImerCarb™ ground calcium carbonates (GCC) are cost-effective extender solutions for butyl / EPDM sealant strips.
Our PolCarb™ ground calcium carbonate (GCC) grades are cost-effective solutions, prized for the low decantation properties they confer to hotmelt adhesives.
We recommend our cost-effective PolCarb® GCC range and Luzenac soft talc solutions for butyl mastics.
Luzenac is particularly recommended for its anti-scratch properties in IG glazing primary seals.
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 our Suzorite® micas which provide superior oil absorption and sound damping in bitumen membranes.
Our Suzorite®, MU™ and WG™ mica ranges provide excellent anti-mudcracking and barrier properties.
WG™ high aspect ratio micas also confer superior whiteness.
Our ImerSeal™ 96S and ImerSeal™ 94S grades are effective rheology modifiers in solvent-based adhesives.
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.
