Welcome to Imerys Performance Minerals


Imerys pharmaceutical talc grades Your safe, controlled source for superior performance

IPEC member, Imerys guarantees the safety, quality and consistency of its pharmaceutical talc grades which are all derived from controlled, proprietary sources, available for audit. 

Talc is lamellar and has a high surface area. It is chemically inert and has a stabilizing effect on active ingredients. By harnessing these natural properties, we can produce pharmaceutical talc grades which are excellent processing aids and improve the quality of the final product and lower costs.

Imerys talcs are ideal for:

  • Compressed tablets
  • Coated tablets
  • Medicated powders and creams


All Imerys talc grades for pharmaceuticals are decontaminated in compliance with European (EP), US (USP) and Japanese (JP) Pharmacopoeias, allowing their utilization worldwide.

They are produced on dedicated decontaminated process lines which are certified under the 'Joint IPEC – PQG Good Manufacturing Practices Guide for Pharmaceutical Excipients'.

We offer a full range of bespoke formulation and technical and process support services to help you match the right mineral grade to your application requirement.
