Welcome to Imerys Performance Additives Division

Recycled Plastics

Imerys is one of the largest European producers of recycled polyolefin compounds in Europe through its subsidiary, ImerPlast UK Ltd. Combining access to the Imerys mineral range and in-depth knowledge of the effects of minerals in polymers with our ground-breaking polyolefin compatibalization technology, has made us a world-class player in the recycling field. We purchase baled, post-consumer mixed polyolefin (MPO) waste (including PE, PP and PS), as well as some post-industrial material, which we reprocess to exacting standards in order to displace virgin resin from engineered applications. By employing the latest technologies at all stages of the process-analysis of incoming raw materials, sorting, grinding, washing, blending and compounding-and through the use of our unique additive package, we can improve the properties of recycled plastics to make our compounds behave like virgin polymers suitable for a wide range of end-use applications.

ImerPlast Compound

ImerPlast is a family of engineered, mixed polyolefin compounds, compatibalized using our ImerLink mineral-based compatibilizing agent, which can be engineered to provide similar properties to virgin polymers.



Imerlink is the specialty coated mineral unique to Imerys, which provides compatibilization superior to olefinic block copolymer (OBC).


We buy…

We welcome contact from companies with significant quantities of LDPE, LLDPE, MDPE, MDPE, PP or PS material for recycling, whether from post-consumer or post-industrial sources or from redundant or damaged stock. Please contact us.
