DekorFlake is a range of natural Mica flakes designed to impart a decorative metallic or natural sparkle effect for decorative concrete.

We offer a wide range of mineral products for construction for a variety of applications.

Our products go into a vast range of applications. Whether it’s into roads and infrastructure, additives for floor screeds, ballast for concrete, or fire protection, you can find our products throughout the construction sector.

These construction products include but are not limited to, Gypsol Binder, Magnetite, GGBS (Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag), ATH, and Limestone filler. You can delve further here.

Our range of products for the construction industry provide sustainable solutions and optimise performance. One such product is olivine mineral, which finds various uses in the construction industry. Olivine is known for its high strength and durability, making it an ideal material for constructing infrastructure projects like roads, bridges, and tunnels. It is also used as a flux in brick and refractory applications, providing thermal stability and enhancing resistance to chemicals.

Additionally, we provide filler minerals, which are used to improve the properties of construction materials. These minerals, such as talc, chalk and limestone filler, act as extenders, reinforcing the durability of paints, adhesives, and coatings. They also enhance the workability and performance of construction materials like concrete and asphalt, ensuring longevity and cost efficiency.

In addition, we continually review our mineral products for construction, so make sure to check for future developments.

Our construction products are found throughout everyday life. From the innocuous to the obvious, minerals are everywhere. Tune into our upcoming minerals are everywhere campaign to learn more about our products and the applications they go into.
