Glomax

Glomax™ For electrical insulation in medium to high voltage cables and improved processing in extruded parts

  • High stability and purity
  • Highly insulating
  • Low moisture pick-up
  • Excellent processability
  • Low compression set

Imerys Glomax is a high purity calcined kaolin designed to provide low conductivity for medium and high voltage electrical applications where volume resistivity is crucial.

Wire & Cable

Glomax™ imparts excellent insulation properties in medium and high voltage power cables.

Due to its low moisture pick-up, it is a particularly good choice for guaranteeing insulation properties under wet operating conditions.

Glomax™ also improves compression set, making it suitable for the production of rubber cable sheathing of flexible cable. 

Used in partial replacement of ATH or MDH in halogen-free cables it provides superior flame retardancy, abrasion and oil resistance while maintaining good electrical properties.

EPDM extrusion

Glomax™ is a valuable processing aid in extruded and calendered rubber where it confers a very smooth finish and excellent dimensional control due to the low die swell it imparts.

Glomax™ is recommended for:

  • Wire and cable
  • EPDM/EPR extruded profiles
  • Pharmaceutical rubber

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.
