Welcome to Imerys Performance Minerals

Plastics

Imerys offers the widest portfolio of engineered kaolins, calcium carbonates, micas, wollastonites and talc to serve today's plastics market. 

Imerys engineered minerals make excellent reinforcing fillers, glass-fiber replacements and foaming agents in polypropylene, engineering thermoplastics and thermosets for the production of lightweight automotive parts, domestic appliances, electronic components, construction profiles and food packaging

They provide breathability in hygiene films and reduce resin consumption in nonwoven fiber production. 

Our engineered minerals are used as antiblocking agents and reinforcement agents in packaging and agricultural films.

They can be used to restore mechanical properties to recycled plastics and to mixed polymer feedstocks. They make ideal nucleating agents in biopolymers and semi-crystalline polymers. 

Imerys micas bring multiple benefits to sound damping applications.
