Welcome to Imerys Performance Minerals

Health, Pharma & Biotechnology

At Imerys, we draw on our own world-class ore bodies spread across the globe to offer our customers an extensive range of controlled, consistently high-quality, natural mineral ingredients for pharmaceuticals and healthcare markets.

Our pharmaceutical diatomite grades are high purity filter aids of choice in biotechnology and bio-pharmaceutical applications, including blood plasma fractionation and as a filtration-boosting process aids for harvesting and clarifying antibodies and proteins.

Imerys pharmaceutical-grade precipitated calcium carbonates (PCC) are prized pharmaceutical ingredients for antacids and calcium supplements in nutraceuticals. Our talcs are suitable glidants and lubricants for compressed tablets and coated products and can also be used as carriers for medicated topical powders. 

Harnessing our mineral expertise, we are also contributing to tackling some of the world’s major health issues, such as the lack of drinking water and mosquito-borne disease:  Our ImerPure™ low-cost home water filter system aids the fight against cholera and other water-borne diseases in countries like India and Haiti. And our Imergard™ WP mechanical insecticide could prove invaluable in controlling mosquito populations in sub-Saharan Africa where malaria claims hundreds of thousands of lives each year.
