Cost optimization for paper & board
Imerys’ multi-mineral portfolio offers solutions for paper and board producers to reduce expensive raw materials (such as fibre or chemicals) and/or optimize productivity, therefore lower total manufacturing costs per tonne of paper and board.
Smart mineral solutions for cost optimization
With a large portfolio of minerals, Imerys provides paper and board producers with solutions to optimize cost.
Titanium dioxide and plastic pigment replacement or reduction
Calcined kaolin clay creates excellent optical scatter, improving brightness and opacity. Platy clay combined with blocky calcium carbonates (GCC) creates a structured coating that improves the optical and physical coverage of a sheet.
Reduced energy consumption
Hydrous kaolin clay, Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) and Ground Calcium Carbonate (GCC) filler pigments improve paper machine productivity, promoting dewatering and reducing total energy demand.
Hydrous kaolin clay, Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) and Ground Calcium Carbonate (GCC) filler loading options offer fiber reduction for all paper and board applications.
