To meet industry demands for tailor-made and cost-efficient MagniF products, LKAB Minerals has invested in new production facilities in the Netherlands.
Serving industries with MagniF
MagniF products are LKAB Minerals’ polymer and rubber additives based on natural magnetite. Over the last 20 years, MagniF products have found their way in a variety of applications in several industries. Some of the well-known applications today are for MagniF to be used as:
- heavy filler to give a quality feel or sound damping properties
- magnetic functional filler in “magnet” paints that are produced all over the world
- a tracer, giving polymers and rubbers both X-ray and metal/magnetic detectability (dual-detectability) - for this particular application food-approved grades are available
New MagniF grades in 2018
The first new commercial MagniF grade will be introduced early 2018 and offers a competitive product for sound damping applications for e.g. the automotive industry. This product is available for evaluations now and is packed in big bags or small paper bags. Please contact LKAB Minerals for more detailed information and a sample.
The traditional product range (MagniF 10, 25 and 50) will continue to be produced in Sweden, while in the meantime new grades are developed, tested, and produced at the Moerdijk site in the Netherlands.
