Scratch & mar resistance

Scratch & mar resistance Imerys talcs improve scratch resistance in PP and TPO compounds

The scratch performance of PP and TPO compounds is crucial in automotive interior and exterior applications where appearance plays an important role in customer approval of car quality.

The scratch performance of mineral-reinforced PP and TPO compounds primarily depends on the type of resin or combination of resins used. Once the right resin has been chosen, using optimum mineral products can help maintain scratch performance.

For an optimum balance of scratch performance and mechanical properties, we recommend submicron Jetfine® talc produced using our proprietary milling technology.

For more information on scratch and mar, please contact our plastics team.

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.
