Paint & Coatings

IMERYS is a major supplier of high quality mineral additives to the paint, ink and coatings industries throughout the world.


Our portfolio includes kaolin, calcined kaolin , diatomaceous earth and perlite.


Our minerals particle shape, size, colour and chemistry allow important paint properties to be modified, allowing you to control the quality and performance of your formulation.
As well as modifying paint properties our opacifying extenders can deliver significant TiO2 savings, while maintaining paint quality.

Paint properties we can modify significantly are whiteness, opacity and gloss. Depending on the formulation, our materials can also modify rheology, paint stability, stain resistance and barrier properties.


Our latest innovations are OptiGloss™, an ultra-fine kaolin TiO2 extender from IMERYS designed for high gloss water paints, and ImerSilk™, a fine kaolin extender for decorative water-based semi-gloss and silk paints.

Use the Product Selector to identify Imerys products appropriate for your specific application and the property you want to modify. The product selector will present you with a range of datasheets and applications advice.

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 use of extenders in the paint, ink and coatings industries.
