The natural solution for architectural paints 

Whether you are looking to get more from your raw materials, boost brightness, improve durability or reduce your environmental impact, we have mineral-based solutions that can achieve this for you. 

From kaolin and wollastonite to perlite, mica, leucophyllite, diatomaceous earth, calcium carbonate and talc*, there’s a huge range of minerals that can deliver the results you want. 

We process products for all types of paints and coatings, including water-based, solvent-based, gloss and semi-gloss finishes, matt and ultra-matt paints, primers, undercoats and topcoats. We can also formulate bespoke products engineered to meet your exact requirements, or new tailor-made engineered solutions for TiO2 extension.

Our minerals can help you with matting, extending titanium dioxide, improving barrier effects, reducing harmful VOCs and cutting down on resin content. They’ll also boost your control of gloss, rheology and opacity, or if you want to improve scrub resistance, weather resistance, ​​breathability or anti-cracking properties, we have mineral solutions to achieve this, too.
