Welcome to Imerys Performance Minerals


Nicron® For automotive, packaging, and general purpose polymer applications

Our Nicron® range of microlamellar talc products are high purity, off-white platy talcs that are used for cost-effective general purpose reinforcement in rigid plastics.

Nicron® talcs provide:

  • Improved stiffness
  • Good HDT
  • Improved dimensional stability

Nicron® products are used in a broad range of applications from automotive to appliances, packaging, wire and cable, vinyl sheet and profile, general purpose and household plastics, where they provide an optimum balance of cost and reinforcement.

They can be used to replace low aspect ratio additives such as calcium carbonate to improve reinforcement and dimensional stability.

Our Nicron® 674 ultrafine talc product is an ideal low-cost solution for automotive exterior and interior and for packaging applications.

Nicron® 674 DT and Nicron® 674 C are provided in compacted forms for reduced dusting and increased compounding throughput and dosing accuracy.

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.
