Engineering Mineral Solutions
Imerys has invested its extensive experience in minerals in developing a line of Engineering Minerals Solutions for coating paper and board. These composite products are flexible in the size of each mineral component and the ratio in which they are combined, depending on the end use. They offer paper and board producers the ability to improve coating kitchen logistics by receiving a single composite pigment.
Due to their unique formulation and controlled granulometric distribution—and depending on the end-use requirement—our Engineering Mineral Solutions:
- Improve coating kitchen logistics by offering a single pigment, thus reducing inventory and BOM control and eliminatating separate GCC and kaolin purchasing.
- Generate bulkier structures which can help both physical and optical coverage leading to excellent optical properties and brightness in single layer or topcoat applications
- Improve coating hold out and coating coverage on rough base board. Board can be calendered less, or lower cost fiber can be used.
