FILLER

We proposed our clays and calcined clays as a filler to provide for various industry: Rubber, Adhesives, paints, plastics, mortars …

Rubber
Our kaolinic clays can be used to good advantage in elastomers and masterbatches.

Their rheological properties and low abrasion satisfy all processing requirements.
The very fine grading of Argirec™ clays, their large exchange surface and low hardness mean that they can be used in a wide number of applications, where they impact excellent mechanical properties and enhance the appearance of finished products.
They are most notably used in elastomers, thermoplastics, and particularly in rigid and soft PVC’s.

Calcined kaolin (such as Argical™) offers superior reinforcement, excellent extrusion and compression set, all important properties to the designer of rubber compounds and articles. Calcined kaolin is chemically inert and our grades have low heavy metal content properties which are beneficial when making pharmaceutical stoppers.

Adhesives
Kaolinic clays from the Charentes region are noted for their fine particle size and large exchange surface : valuable natural properties for the formulation of glues. These clays are used particularly in vinyl, epoxy, phenolic, and urea-formol glues.

In sealants and adhesives, kaolin is used to modify rheological properties, it gives good barrier effects and rheology control. Controlling rheology can influence the speed at which adhesive can be applied which is important in high speed paper laminating processes.
