Natural flame retardants, lamellar minerals, and high density products for use in a wide range of Polymer applications. High aspect ratio minerals, high density, natural magnetism and whitening products for use in a wide range of paint and coating applications.
Minerals reinforce polymers; MicaFort, a high aspect ratio mineral, provides very efficient warpage reduction and an improved surface finish.
Use DekorFlake to provide natural sparkle and glitter in a variety of flooring types such as vinyl flooring, tile flooring, concrete flooring or epoxy flooring.
MagniF is capable, due to its high density and ferri-magnetic properties, of making polymers metal detectable with high frequency coil.
High density polymers
LKAB Minerals offers the environmentally friendly MagniF for increasing the density of a variety of polymer products.
PVC is less flammable that other polymers however the addition of flame retardant additives is still very beneficial.
ATH and DekorFlake are both natural minerals used as key ingredients in composite materials used as solid surfacing. Solid surfacing is also called artificial stone or synthetic marble/onyx and is used for countertops with seamless decorative finishes.
To block sound transmitting a polymer with significant weight will ensure a reduction in transmission.
Wire & cable
LKAB Minerals manufacture halogen-free fire and flame retardant (FR) minerals for the cable and wire industry. We manufacture our unique UltraCarb product range from our own Turkish source of hydromagnesite and huntite. LKAB Minerals also process high quality aluminium hydroxide (ATH).
