Floor mortars Imerys minerals - excellent fillers for self-leveling and self-smoothing floor mortars

Imerys talcs, wollastonites and metakaolins are excellent multi-functional fillers for self-leveling and self-smoothing floor mortars.

Talc

Talc platelets demonstrate an affinity for polar organic binders and excellent dispersibility in water. This means that they disperse easily in water-based systems such as cementitious self-leveling and self-smoothing floor mortars.

Imerys talc:

  • Provides self leveling properties
  • Lowers shrinkage
  • Improves crack resistance
  • Enhances surface aspect
  • Improves powder flow
  • Increases tensile strength, compressive strength, flexibility and stamping resistance
  • Increases abrasion resistance
  • Improves viscosity and adhesion
  • Minimizes settling

Imerys talcs are cost-effective alternatives to calcite and quartz.

We recommend Luzenac H100 and Luzenac 2 for floor mortars which have a medium lamellar structure and particle size distribution.

Wollastonite

Imerys wollastonite is used to increase floor strength and as an anti cracking agent. We recommend our Nyad® MG and Nyad® G grades for floor mortars.

Metakaolin

Metakaolin is used to enhance mechanical strength in floor mortars. We recommend our Argical - M range for this application.

We offer a full range of bespoke formulation and technical and process support services to help you match the right mineral grade to your application requirement.
