With premises in Affi, in the Province of Verona, Mineral Im.Es.Co. is a benchmark for the sales of micronized talcs for the paint and plastic materials sectors.
The micronized talcs used for paints have a hydrophobic surface with lamellar form particles (macro or micro crystalline) and may contain different types of minerals. For paint production our group, Mineral Im.Es.Co., offer micronized talcs which enhance painting and are easy to apply. In terms of functional components, these talcs optimise performance when used in decorative painting and for industrial paints ensuring brightness and even colour as well as adhering to surfaces and offering protection and resistance to corrosion.
In the plastic materials sectors, pure micronized talc offers infinite applications from the production of components for automotives , household appliances, the manufacture of food packaging (yogurt containers and stay fresh packs) and profiles for windows to polypropylene containers thanks to its exceptional resistance to scratches, bumps, abrasions and deformation. Micronized talc is also used in wood-plastic composites (WPC) as it allows to reduce water absorption as well as shrinkage and deformation of the material. Talc improves the elasticity modulus and shape temperature retention.
