Welcome to Imerys Performance Minerals

Paper & Board

Imerys provides high-quality, natural mineral solutions customized for every step of the pulp, paper, paperboard and printing process.

As the world leader in mineral-based specialty solutions for industrial applications, Imerys transforms a unique range of minerals to deliver functions that are essential to paper and board products and manufacturing processes. 

  • Our high-performance coating pigments improve the printability and visual appeal of our customer’s paper and board with a focus on coverage, brightness and gloss. 
  • Our functional filler pigments enhance runnability, improve surface properties and promote opacity and brightness. 
  • Our pigments options for cost optimization can reduce raw materials costs by TiO₂ and plastic pigment replacement and fiber extension. 
  • Our barrier coatings solutions provide board producers and converters with an opportunity to offer sustainable, innovative solutions for tomorrow’s marketplace.
  • Our commercial micro-fibrillated cellulose/ mineral composite products (FiberLean portfolio) allow for fiber replacement, strength improvements, productivity gains and customer product development.
  • Mechanical and chemical pulp bleaching can be enhanced through the use of our magnesium hydroxide bleaching additive, EcoBright.  This allows for the elimination of magnesium sulfate and significant caustic reduction with a potential to lower peroxide dosages in some systems.  Additional benefits include reduced COD and less carryover to the paper machine.
  • Our talcs and bentonites are excellent environment-friendly solutions for a cleaner paper making process upstream.
