Recycled plastics Imerys minerals restore mechanical properties to recycled plastics
Recycled plastics tend to lose in mechanical performance during the recycling process and need to be reinforced for more demanding applications. Imerys minerals restore mechanical properties to recycled plastics.
Calcium carbonates for enhanced optical and mechanical properties and cost optimization
Imerys produces a wide portfolio of calcium carbonate grades based on chalk and marble deposits with a range of particle sizes and powder brightness, depending on the source. These materials can be used in many different resins (PVC, PE, PP, ...) and applications within recycled plastics. Our ground calcium carbonates, ImerCarb® and PolCarb®, provide cost optimization while optimizing optical and mechanical properties as well as enhancing productivity.
Imerys micas such as our Suzorite® range are ideal for reinforcing recycled nylons where they improve HDT, stiffness and shrinkage.
Glass fiber alternative
In recycled polyamide, Imerys minerals make excellent cost-effective alternatives to glass fiber with our Imerys wollastonite such as our Nyglos range.
We offer a full range technical and process support services to help you match the right mineral grade to your application requirement.
