Board, paper, packaging & pulp
We are the world leader in mineral-based, high-quality, natural solutions which allow every step of the pulp, paper, paperboard and printing process to be optimized.
The widest range of mineral solutions for board, paper, packaging & pulp
Our high-performance pigments, such as calcium carbonates and kaolins, improve the printability and visual appeal of paper and board when used as a coating, with a focus on coverage, brightness and gloss.
Our functional filler pigments enhance runnability, improve surface properties and promote opacity and brightness.
Our talcs and bentonites are excellent environment-friendly solutions for a cleaner paper-making process.
A unique range of mineralized water-based barrier coatings is also available for board producers and converters to develop sustainable and innovative solutions as alternatives to PE lamination.
Mechanical and chemical pulp bleaching can be enhanced through the use of our magnesium hydroxide bleaching additive, EcoBright™, which allows pulp producers to eliminate magnesium sulfate with significant caustic reduction and the potential to lower peroxide dosages in most systems. Additional benefits include reduced COD in the wastewater and less carryover of anionic charges to the paper machine.
In these and other ways we partner with the packaging, board, paper & pulp industries to create smarter products with more impact, while optimizing the use of resources.
