Welcome to Imerys Performance Minerals


KAOLIN Consistent quality products for traditional ceramics.

Kaolin is a majority component for the ceramics industry.  Its high fusion temperature and white firing characteristics make it particularly suitable for the manufacture of traditional ceramics such as sanitaryware, tableware, wall and floor tiles.

Kaolin is prized for the production of traditional ceramics such as sanitaryware, tableware, technical ceramics, electrical porcelains and fiberglass.

Imerys supplies a range of kaolin products optimized for both traditional and pressure casting.
