Welcome to Imerys Performance Minerals

High Performance Coatings


Imerys minerals from our Multi-Mineral portfolio make excellent paper coating pigments.

Imerys coating pigments include kaolin (hydrous and calcined clay), ground calcium carbonate (GCC), precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) and diatomaceous earth (DE).

Our multi-mineral coating pigments:

  • Improve printability and visual appeal
  • Enhance smoothness, covering rough and porous base sheets
  • Boost paper optics with gloss, opacity and brightness
  • Improve surface properties and reduce ink demand
  • Replace expensive TiO2 and plastic pigments
  • Increase coating strength


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.
