Weather, scrub, abrasion & UV resistance Imerys minerals for enhanced durability
Imerys minerals protect water-borne and solvent-borne binders from UV radiation, enhancing the weather resistance of outdoor paints and primers. They improve the durability of the paint film and considerably increase wet scrub and abrasion resistance.
The combination of lamellar chlorite and mica particles with nodular shaped quartz particles provides excellent scrub resistance in decorative coating enabling formulations to be upgraded to a superior class.
Eco-Phyl® and Plastorit® allow manufacturers to lower resin content and to formulate at higher PVC levels without sacrificing scrub performance. In exterior decorative paint formulations, Eco-Phyl® and Plastorit® enhance long term weather resistance and color stability.
Our Nyad® wollastonite grades have a needle-like structure which reinforces coating films, providing durability, superior scrub and abrasion resistance and color retention.
They are ideal for architectural paints, industrial, protective and marine coatings.
Weather and UV resistance
The hydrophobic and lamellar nature of Imerys engineered talcs make them excellent additives for improving weather and UV resistance.
