Elementis Finntalc grades are natural performance minerals which significantly improve the mechanical strength and dimensional stability of polymer compounds. Our additives support the reduction of carbon emissions in industries such as automotive, electrical and electronics through light weighting, be it enabling polymers to replace metal parts, or allowing for thinner wall designs at equal strength. In addition, specialized talc can improve color consistency and surface appearance of plastic parts.
Elementis talc grades such as Finntalc M04SLC are already widely used in plastics serving a wide range of industries, such as automotive, electrical and electronics as it delivers highly effective mechanical strength that enables the compound to replace metal parts or reduce the wall thickness of plastics parts.
Talc is also an ideal additive to improve the performance of recycled plastics, broadening their range of usability. Being the softest mineral on earth, talc brings benefits during compounding, such as decreased wear of equipment.
Elementis is a global partner with an excellent industrial talc portfolio and extensive application knowledge. Being largely backwards-integrated with its own talc mines located in Finland as well as using a unique purification process, Elementis provides a secure supply of consistent high quality products.
At Compounding, our experts will be available to discuss the applications and benefits of various talc grades, including:
