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 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.
- 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 talcs with a medium lamellar structure and particle size distribution for this application (consult us).
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 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.
