Adhesive & Sealants

IMERYS is a major supplier of high quality mineral additives to the adhesive and sealant industries throughout the world.


Our portfolio for adhesives, sealants and caulks includes kaolin (china clay, hydrous kaolin), calcined kaolin (calcined clay), ball clay (secondary clay) and mica.


In adhesives & sealants kaolins give good barrier effects and rheology control. Controlling rheology can influence the speed at which adhesive can be applied which is important in high speed paper laminating processes.


The low surface hydroxyl content of calcined kaolins leads to a low moisture pick-up, resulting in excellent performance in moisture sensitive (MS) sealant applications. Calcined kaolins are also effective as structure building components.


All of our products are supported by a high standard of technical service, product development and research from a team of highly experienced scientists and specialists in the adhesives & sealants industries.
