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.
Brake pads can contain up to 20 different ingredients; MicaFort and MagniF can be two of the minerals used to produce this part of the braking systems in cars. LKAB Minerals supply this platy mineral and the iron oxide to different brake pad manufacturers world-wide.
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.
Flame retardant foams
UltraCarb is used in the manufacture of NBR/PVC flexible elastomeric foams as a flame retardant filler.
High density polymers
LKAB Minerals offers the environmentally friendly MagniF for increasing the density of a variety of polymer products.
Even though PVC is less flammable than other polymers adding a flame retardant additive such as our UltraCarb is still very beneficial.
ATH and DekorFlake are both natural minerals used as key ingredients in composite materials used as solid surfacing.
To block sound transmitting a polymer with significant weight will ensure a reduction in transmission.
Wire & cable
UltraCarb is a unique halogen-free fire retardant while our ATH is compatible with many polymer types and provides fire retardancy and smoke suppression.
