Welcome to Imerys Performance Minerals

Cost optimization


Imerys’ Multi-Mineral portfolio offers solutions for paper and board producers to reduce raw materials and manufacturing costs.

Titanium dioxide and plastic pigment replacement or reduction

Calcined kaolin clay creates excellent optical scatter, improving brightness and opacity.
Platy clay combined with blocky calcium carbonates (GCC) creates a structured coating that improves the optical and physical coverage of a sheet.

Reduced energy consumption

Hydrous kaolin clay, precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) and ground calcium carbonate (GCC) filler pigments improve paper machine productivity, promoting dewatering and reducing total energy demand.

Fiber extension

Hydrous kaolin clay, precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC), ground calcium carbonate (GCC) and our FiberLean® (MFC/mineral composite) filler loading options offer fiber reduction for all paper and board applications.


Imerys FiberLean® aids in the lightweighting of the board by adding strength, potentially offering energy savings throughout the packaging lifecycle.



We offer a full range of bespoke formulation and technical and process support services to help you match the right mineral grade to your application requirement.
