No matter what type of plastics you’re producing, IMERYS has innovative and sustainable solutions that can enhance their properties, reduce their carbon footprint and help lower your costs.
We extract and engineer minerals such as talc, mica and calcium carbonate that make excellent reinforcers and improve barrier effect, work as a flame retardancy synergist, glass-fiber replacements and nucleating agents in polypropylene, engineering thermoplastics and thermosets for the production of lightweight automotive parts, domestic appliances, electronic components, construction profiles and food packaging.
Our products provide breathability in hygiene films and reduce resin consumption in nonwoven fiber production. They can be used as antiblocking agents and reinforcement agents in packaging and agricultural films, or to restore mechanical properties to recycled plastics and they make ideal nucleating agents in biopolymers and semi crystalline polymers.
In addition, we have a wide portfolio of specialty carbons including primary synthetic graphite and conductive carbon blacks for thermally and electrically conductive plastics, rubber, coatings and paints or polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE).
We tailor our carbon based solutions to enable customers to achieve the properties they are looking for, including: electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, lubrication, durability and surface consistency.
Talk to our plastics experts about your manufacturing processes and challenges, and we’ll find the right solution to help your business accelerate and thrive.
