Minerals for the UK coatings market

May 30, 2016: During SURFEX exhibition LKAB Minerals presented industrial mineral solutions to the British coatings market.

The biannual exhibition was held at the NEC in Birmingham on May 24th and 25th and was a small but very busy exhibition. Visitors were interested in our mineral solutions including MicaFort one use as an example is in anti-corrosion coatings and also the Chalk and Talc products that LKAB Minerals manufacture. MagniF for magnetic paint raised high interest amongst coating formulators.
