IMERYS is a major supplier of high quality minerals to the chemical industry throughout the world.


Our portfolio for the diverse range of chemical industries includes ultrafine kaolin and calcined kaolin.


The composition of kaolin combined with Imerys’ rigorous quality controls makes kaolin an essential and consistent raw material for the manufacture of Ultramarine Blue, a pigment with extensive applications in plastics, paint and cosmetics.


In the leather treatment industry, Kaolin is used as a carrier for active ingredients used in the preparation of animal hides.


The particle shape and size of calcined kaolin make it ideal for incorporating into mildly abrasive formulations or metal cleaning compounds and car polishes.


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 chemical industry.
