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 with superior products and easy processing for pharmaceuticals and healthcare markets.

Imerys pharmaceutical-grade, precipitated calcium carbonates (PCC) are active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) of choice for antacids and calcium supplements and make good pharmaceutical diluents, coloring agents and processing aids for tablet production.  

Diatomite (purified siliceous earth) is an excellent high purity functional additive or process enabler in pharmaceutical filtration and a key component in blood filtration clarification and fractionation processing. 

Synthetic Calcium Silicates is an excellent tableting aid in certain vitamin formulations.  It is especially effective at carrying Vitamin E into powder formulations.  

Harnessing our mineral expertise, we are also contributing to tackling some of the world’s major health issues, such as mosquito-borne disease:  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.
