Calcium Carbonate / TURKCARB®

Mikron'S Calcium Carbonate grades are branded as TURKCARB® in general, let manufactures to produce high quality products in many applications. Calcite (CaCO3) found in nature in marble, limestone and chalk forms with different crystal shapes.Depending on the amount of impurities, whiteness parameters may fluctuate. Deviation of Silicate (SiO2 ) contents will also effect hardness values of the material. TURKCARB® high brigthness and negligible abrasion values features the quality of TURKCARB raw material quality level. TURKCARB® grades are very fine GCC (Ground Calcium Carbonate) which is also featured with fine particle size distribution. Starting from 90% fraction under 2 microns fineness till 100 microns median size, Mikron'S able to produce outstanding products to offer optimum solutions. Ultrafine grades of TURKCARB® will offer superior surface finish solutions to paint, paper and plastics industries. Overseparated TURKCARB® grades are another class of product Group in which surface coating is not feasible, to decrease the oil absorption values. Decreasing the oil absorption of calcium carbonate will bring so many advantages to processors to decrease binder absorption, decreasing of manufacturing costs while using more calcium carbonate in the recipes.

Mikron'S Dolomite

Dolomite is a double carbonate of calcium cand magnesium, and it's formula generally written as CaMg(CO3)2. Pure and white dolomite with minimum calcium magnesium carbonate content of 99% is mined in rich deposits in Turkey, where name "marble" took it's orginal name during history. Turkish Dolomite is one of puriest and whitest dolomite in the world.

Unique Cystalline structure, high natural whiteness and steep particle size distribution are all main parameters of Mikron'S Dolomite grades.

Usage of Dolomite improves weatherability, mechanical stability, reduces shrinkage and internal stress and eliminates crack development and water adsorption. Micronised Mikron'S Dolomite grades have wide usage in;

General decorative, rust proofing paints
Road marking paints
PUR, polyester and expoxy resins
ABS, SAN and other thermoplastics.
Water based paints
Plasters
Matt wall paints
Concrete and gloss paints
Undercoats and rustproofing primers
Coil coatings
Road marking paints
Adhesives, silicone and sealing compound

Mikron'S Kaolin

Kaolin is Aluminium Silicate Al2O3.2SiO2.2H2O. and found partly lamellar shape in nature. Mikron'S Kaolin grades are typical pure and white ball clays that could be used in many areas like paints, plastics and rubber industrie s.

Mikron'S Kaolin grades can enchance;
Opacity
Mud crack resistance
Scrub resistance
Corrosion resistance
Resistance to chalking, in many paint formulations.

Usage of Kaolin in plastics and rubber applications are vital due to it s particle shape and inertness. Main applications are rubber, thermoplastic elastomers, greenhouse films, etc.

Mineral Fillers

MIKRON’S products are indispensible raw material for plastics.

Advantages of Mikron’s products which is used in our process are these:
* The density of Plastic is increased
* The surface quality, Hardness and Resisstance is increased
* It improves the electric isolation
* It prevents ecological polution with less use of polimer
* The most important advantage is decrease of the cost

Mikron'S TALK

MIKRON'S is Turkey's leading producer of high quality and innovative pure talc products, which are designed to add value to wide range of end products in plastics industries. Using of MİKRON'S Talk grades have bring so many advantages during and after processing. Some of common advantages are;

Impact strength: Adding of MİKRON'S Talk 5X, MİKRON'S Talk 3X, MİKRON'S Talk PREMIER, increase stiffness and impact strength of polyolefin compounds at the same time.

Low abrasion: Talc is the softest industrial mineral with a Moh's hardness of 1. Pure, chlorite-free Talc products give the low abrasion values which lead to a long tool life in compounding and extrusion.

Thermal conductivity: Talc filled compounds have a significant higher thermal conductivity than the virgin polymer. Heating and cooling are shorter, resulting in faster production rates.

Creep resistance: Creep is the changing of form or dimensions of pieces under load (e.g. under soil) over a long period of time. Pure, platy talc leads to superior creep resistance compared to other fillers.

Stiffness (E-Modulus): Talc's main function in polymer compounds is to increase the E-modulus values to obtain durable plastics like bumpers, garden furniture, etc... Pure Lamelar Talcs with high aspect ratio are the most efficient environmental fillers for gaining Stiffness.

Colour consistency: PP compounds could be pigmented in a big variety of colours. In order to be sure about sustainability of colour shades, the colour of the talc should remain during and after processing. High Lamelar MİKRON'S Talk-X series are tightly controlled and give a significant benefit to formulators.

Nucleation: Due to it's high Zeta Potential, Fine talcs with a median particle less than diameter of 3 µm, efficiently promote the crystallisation of polyolefins, which leads to improved impact strength. Re-crystallization in this form called nucleation.

Aging resistance: Magnetic impurities like soluble iron oxide are removed by electromagnetic separation in the purification for MİKRON'S Talk-X grades. Iron, which is incorporated in the talc crystal (replacing Mg atoms), is inactive and does not have a negative effect on the heat distortion temperature.

Scratch resistance: Pure, soft talc leads to a better slip of scratching objects. Greyish talc reduces the visibility of scratches.

Reinforcement of rubber: The Nodular MİKRON'S Talk-SX grades with high specific surface area will improve mechanical properties of rubber compounds. Also it reduces the gas permeability and electrical conductivity.

Mikron'S Mika

Mica have been recognised as an unique Inorganic Plastic filler because of its exceptional properties can not be found in any other fillers. Some of it's useful characteristic properties are:
Outstanding mechanical, electrical, thermal and chemical properties rarely found in any other products.

Transparent, elastic and flexible. Ground to very fine particles with a high-aspect ratio which are specially suited as for reinforcing fillers.

Moisture proof, infusible, non-combustible.

High tensile / flexural strengths and modules of elasticity.

With excellent anti-friction and anti-sticking properties

With it's low density (2.8 to 3.0 g/cm3 ) which helps to reduce added resin weight and maximise resin savings. It's bulking value is about 0.34 g/ml.

Having low specific gravity, such mica particles do not tend to settle and these particles stay uniformly dispersed

Relatively soft, with moh's hardness of 2.5 to 3.0 which further helps to minimise equipment wear and abrasion during processing. It also eliminates abrasive effects on steel plates.

About us

Company details

Mikron'S started operations in year 2004, in city Niğde which is well known about white and pure Calcium Carbonate reserves. Mikron'S faced a high demand from the market due to wide product range and quality.

Even to evaluate, Turkey’s local resources and not to expose country’s entrepreneurs high import cost of performance minerals, that can be produced locally, we used last version technology of it's kind when plant was erected. Initial production capacity, was 120.000 tons per year before putting new ball mills into service, to produce 350.000 tons per year. We also operating it's own mines which is the key role in this business segment.

Mikron'S have started exports to surrounded markets under a brand name TURKCARB® and faced high demand. Other industrial minerals like Talc, Dolomite, Kaolin, Mica, etc… are also in our product range to evalute cost advantages of country’s own resources.
