ImerLink

Imerlink is the specialty coated mineral unique to Imerys and patented by Imerys. 
ImerLink is NOT available for general sale but can be obtained through our formulation service under strict contractual conditions.

In all tests, ImerLink has been shown to be superior to olefin block copolymer (OBC) compatibilizer as it does not just change the miscibility of the PE and PP phases in an MPO (mixed polyolefin) but creates a new network of bonds between these phases and the coated mineral as shown in the diagrams below.
