ImerPlast boosts recycled polyolefin performance

ImerPlast™ is a compatibilised, mixed polymer compound, consisting of recycled polyethylene and polypropylene resin and a mineral-based compatibilising agent. ImerPlast™ extends the number of useful applications of recycled plastic feedstock, allowing a higher recycling rate and increasing the scope of recycled polymers.  This engineered mineral also overcomes phase separation and ensures stable production. ImerPlast™ is already being used in pipes for drains and sewers and for wood plastic composite decking. This summer will see the launch of a whole new product range of ImerPlast™ recycled polyolefin composites for durable injection applications requiring high impact performance.

Imerys talcs: excellent reinforcing agents in PP and ETP

From our 9 talc deposits worldwide, Imerys offers the widest portfolio of engineered talcs for today's plastics market.
Imerys talcs make excellent reinforcing fillers in polypropylene and engineering thermoplastics for automotive parts, domestic appliances, E&E components and food packaging.
They are used for antiblocking in polyethylene, restore mechanical properties to recycled plastics and are ideal nucleating agents in biopolymers and semi-crystalline polymers.

Discover New HAR® 3G talcs for automotive lightweighting:
New HAR® 3G has been developed using a patented process that results in very high aspect ratio talc. Designed primarily for automotive polymer applications, HAR® 3G significantly enhances the performance of TPO and PP compounds where it increases stiffness, maintains good impact resistance and lowers CLTE, allowing designers to achieve zero gap tolerancing. This unique combination of physical properties makes it possible to reduce wall thickness and weight, helping automotive OEM’s meet overall vehicle weight reduction goals with a corresponding improvement in fuel economy.

The reference in synthetic & natural graphite powders and highly conductive carbon black

Imerys Graphite and Carbon produces and markets a large variety of synthetic and natural graphite and conductive carbon blacks of consistent high quality. ENSACO® Carbon Blacks are high structure carbon blacks, also called ‘conductive carbon blacks’, of very high purity meeting the severest requirements for low PAH and BAP. They are mainly used as conductive additives to make insulating polymers permanently conductive at low loadings. TIMREX® graphites include a diverse range of carbons, from high-purity synthetic graphite with different particle sizes and morphologies, to naturally occurring graphite extracted from the mine; main applications for graphite in polymers are based on their self-lubricating property and thermal or electrical conductivity.
Newly developed, easy-feedable TIMREX® C-THERM™ additives allow the realization of thermally conductive polymers with outstanding thermal conductivity at low loadings.

Imerys performance minerals for plastics and rubber

From its mineral deposits worldwide, Imerys Performance Additives offers the widest portfolio of mica, talcs and wollastonite for the plastics and rubber industries.

Imerys talcs, mica and wollastonite make excellent reinforcing fillers in polypropylene and engineering thermoplastics for automotive parts, domestic appliances, E&E components and food packaging. They are used for antiblocking in polyethylene, restore mechanical properties to recycled plastics and are ideal nucleating agents in biopolymers and semi-crystalline polymers.

Imerys minerals are also used in seals, hoses, membranes, cables, tires and other mechanical rubber goods to improve processing, permeability, weathering, electrical properties, fire resistance and mechanical properties such as tear. They improve the dispersion of reinforcing fillers reducing mixing time.

They have a synergistic effect with carbon black providing optimum processing and properties, and a good cost-performance balance. Imerys talcs are also ideal for tire inner liners and can contribute to better fuel efficiency.

New HAR® 3G talcs for automotive lightweighting
New HAR® 3G has been developed using a patented process that results in very high aspect ratio talc. Designed primarily for automotive polymer applications, HAR® 3G significantly enhances the performance of TPO and PP compounds where it increases stiffness, maintains good impact resistance and lowers CLTE, allowing designers to achieve zero gap tolerancing. This unique combination of physical properties makes it possible to reduce wall thickness and weight, helping automotive OEM’s meet overall vehicle weight reduction goals with a corresponding improvement in fuel economy.

New ImerSorb™ mineral additive for odour and VOC emission reduction
Odour and VOC emissions cause problems for interior air quality in the house, workplace and automotive environments. Imerys’s ImerSorb™ mineral range has been designed to help meet recent legislation which imposes limits on the concentration of certain solvents allowed in products for the house and workplace and for the automotive market.
