Challenges & Solutions

packaging

Imerys is a global leader in the supply of minerals for rigid and flexible packaging. Our minerals are used across a wide range of products, from containerboard to plastic bags, barrier coatings, sheets and films.

Minerals such as kaolins and calcium carbonates can be used to boost finished product quality, to increase production efficiencies and to help reduce costs. Imerys minerals also improve resin and fiber extension and the optical and mechanical properties of film and rigid packaging.

Our innovative products are as diverse as our customers. FiberLean®  helps customers increase the bonding strength and stiffness of their folding board.  SuperCoat®  improves the performance and throughput of films. And FilmLink™   increases film breathability.

With e-commerce and changing consumer habits creating increased demand for safe and convenient packaging, Imerys is committed to supporting our customers in developing the right  packaging solutions. At the same time, we understand the need to reduce the overall carbon footprint of the end product, increase biopolymer compatibility, develop plastic-free barrier coating grades, and improve recyclability, biodegradability and compostability.

Through our global presence and regional network of world-class research facilities, we work with customers to develop tailored solutions for their business needs wherever they are based.
