Wood coatings Imerys minerals - your natural solution for wood coatings

Imerys minerals make excellent, cost-effective multifunctional fillers and extenders enhancing the optical and mechanical properties of wood paints, primers, clear coatings, lacquers  and wood stains used for parquet flooring, doors, windows and furniture.

Imerys minerals:

  • Improve barrier properties increasing impermeability
  • Increase microporosity allowing the wood to breathe
  • Are effective TiO2 extenders reducing formulation costs
  • Enhance matting 
  • Improve transparency
  • Reduce mud cracking and surface cracking
  • Enhance scrub and burnish resistance
  • Provide UV and weather resistance
  • Contribute to VOC reduction
  • Improve rheology, paint adhesion and application
  • Are easy to disperse
  • Minimize settling

They are compatible with all solvent borne (e.g. alkyd) and water borne (e.g. latex, emulsion) binder bases such as acrylics, polyurethanes, polyesters, melamine resins, epoxies, and oils.
