Imerys Kaopolite For natural, non-hazardous auto polishes

The Imerys Kaopolite specialty line of kaolin clays is designed with auto polish manufacturers in mind.

Kaopolite products are able to offer the following benefits:

  • Gently removes grit, sap, dirt and pollution
  • Particle fineness promotes excellent suspension in liquid systems


Imerys Kaopolite offers a diverse range of products that cover a broad range of overall hardness that meet the needs of various polishing applications. The unique aggregated amorphous structures, inherent inertness and controlled particle size distribution have made it the  “gentle abrasive” of choice for use in both aqueous and non-aqueous systems. 

Our products work by lifting and absorbing the dirt, grit, grime and pollution from the surface while preventing scratches. Suitable for use with both traditional and or mechanical buffing methods.


Our mineral benefits:

  • Ultrafine particle size
  • Natural product
  • Removes hidden embedded debris
  • Cost-effective
  • Self-regulating abrasivity
  • Certified to CleanGredients*

*Imerys is proud to be a part of the CleanIngredients organization.  CleanGredients is the definitive database of chemical ingredients whose formulations have been pre-approved by the U.S. EPA to meet the criteria of their Safer Choice Standard.
