Increasing Sustainability of Industrial Coatings with Imerys Functional Minerals

Imerys logo
This is a Past Webinar

Industrial coatings bring protection to many different substrates like metals, plastics and wood exposed to extreme environmental conditions.
With a growing environmental awareness, more and more sustainable solutions for industrial coatings are required. There is a growing trend towards water-borne systems and reducing the VOC content. Another aspect in this context is the durability especially of protective coatings which is key for an effective corrosion protection and a prolonged service life of industrial parts.

Imerys minerals solutions, Plastorit®, a Leucophyllite - natural coalescence of mica, quartz and chlorite, and Nyad®, tailor-made Wollastonite, effectively reduce the VOC content of industrial coatings to meet the most stringent environmental requirements at the highest level of optical and mechanical performance.

SteaShield™ 10, a highly lamellar talc plays a decisive role when it comes to the barrier effects. This specific morphology provides the highest corrosion resistance.

ClearLite®, an engineered perlite, replaces both the traditional matting agents and some of the binder bringing unparalleled transparency in wood coatings.
