Board & Fiber Packaging

Imerys Kaolin is the global leader in kaolin and offers the most comprehensive range of kaolins for the board and packaging industry, drawing upon reserves in Georgia (US), Capim (Brazil), Cornwall (UK).

Our portfolio of kaolin products is unique and stands apart from other mineral providers as it covers a vast scope of application areas across all grades in Board and Packaging. It is combined with a unique service offering, combining technical support & training, and it is backed by a group level commitment to innovation and new product development – with R&D resources and infrastructure across two international Research Centers and two regional laboratories.

Our capabilities for pigment shape and size engineering have allowed us to develop unique blends that effectively combine platy and blocky pigment particles to deliver enhanced coverage when coating board. This can translate into cost savings for board producers in terms of reduced TiO2 usage, reduced fiber usage, and producing lighter weight grades.

In a marketplace where high quality is taken for granted and low cost is the key driver, IMERYS Kaolin relies upon its understanding of pigments and multi-pigment formulation technology to offer the most cost-effective solutions for its customers in the Board and Packaging industry.
