The Filtration & Performance Additives business group is made up of the Kaolins and Performance Minerals & Filtration Group's activities.


A wide range of effective products

Based on the transformation of a large range of extensive, high-quality mineral reserves (talc, mica, diatomite, perlite, vermiculite and kaolin), as well as expertise in all the techniques needed for processing, this business group is a supplier to the agriculture and food industry, and to a large number of intermediate industries (plastics, paint, rubber, catalysts, paper, health, beauty & personal care, etc.). Its activity is driven by trends in current consumer sectors (beverages, food, magazines, etc.), as well as by demand for capital goods (particularly automotive) and construction (new buildings and renovation).
The Filtration & Performance Additives business group provides customers with tailor-made solutions in technical fields where chemical composition, morphology, mechanical properties, thermal and chemical resistance, as well as food and pharmaceutical grade processing are key requirements. Working alongside its customers for the long-term is also essential for the business group.
