Welcome to Imerys Performance Minerals

Electrical & Electronic (E&E)

Electrical & Electronics (E&E) Imerys minerals improve the mechanical properties of plastic E&E components

Engineering thermoplastics (ETP) and their blends are increasingly replacing metals and thermosets in the automotive and electronic and electrical (E&E) industries for high end applications. Imerys minerals make ideal multi-functional fillers and process enablers in the production of E&E thermoplastic components where they improve stiffness, dimensional stability, flame retardancy and surface appearance making them ideal for demanding applications.

Reinforcement

E&E thermoplastic housings for computers, TVs and electronic devices
Imerys acicular wollastonite make ideal reinforcement fillers in ETP housings for computers, TVs and electronic devices where they provide: 

  • Improved dimensional stability
  • Reduced thermal expansion, shrinkage, warpage and anisotropy
  • Increased stiffness, allowing downgauging and weight reduction of thermoplastic parts
  • Better stiffness / impact balance
  • Excellent heat and flame resistance (FR)
  • amatt surface 
  • Enhanced scratch and mar resistance
  • An excellent alternative or extender to glass-fiber fillers 
  • Dielectric improvement
  • Good polymer flow

We recommend the following products for PC/ABS blends:

  • Nyglos® wollastonite for improved polymer flow, surface finish and stiffness/toughness balance.
  • Nyglos® for partial replacement of short glass fibers (SGF).

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