Recycled plastics Imerys talcs restore mechanical properties to recycled plastics
Recycled plastics tend to lose in mechanical performance during the recycling process and need to be reinforced for more demanding applications. Imerys talcs restore mechanical properties to recycled plastics.
Imerys talcs restore mechanical properties such as:
- Dimensional stability
- Heat resistance
A 20% loading of our Steagreen® talc in recycled PP will match the performance of a commercial talc-filled PP compound and can be used for more demanding engineering applications.
We offer a full range of talc grades with different fineness of grind. Contact us to help you to select exactly the right talc to achieve an optimum cost-performance ratio.
Applications benefitting from Imerys talc usage
Imerys micas such as our Suzorite® range are ideal for reinforcing recycled nylons where they improve HDT, stiffness and shrinkage.
Glass fiber alternative in polyamide
In recycled polyamide, Imerys minerals make excellent cost-effective alternatives to glass fiber.
For mixed polymer compatibilization, please see our dedicated Recycled Plastics section.
We offer a full range technical and process support services to help you match the right mineral grade to your application requirement.
