Optimized mineral solutions for reinforcement fiberglass manufacturers
We believe that raw materials are the answer to a low-carbon economy. We work closely with our customers and science and technology experts to develop solutions to support the fiberglass (glass fiber) manufacturing process.
Our Ceramics team produces the leading range of air-floated kaolins specifically developed for the reinforcement fiberglass market. Our products have high levels of alumina with a consistent chemistry including low levels of alkali, carbon, and sulfur. Such properties help guarantee that our customers’ process performs at a high level, minimizing downtime and maximizing yields.
High, consistent-quality kaolins
We offer our customer-partners:
Long-term partner capabilities: Our minerals ensure consistency of the physical and chemical properties of each batch and Imerys provides long-term access to high-quality minerals.
Value-added minerals: Our minerals guarantee chemical stability of the glass with a streamlined glassmaking process.
Mineral optimization: We develop new solutions to help reduce production costs as well as end product emissions.
