IMERYS PERFORMANCE ADDITIVES DIVISION ANNOUNCES A SIGNIFICANT PRICE INCREASE IN JANUARY 2018

Imerys Performance Additives Division will initiate a substantial price increase, effective January 2018, or as contracts allow. This decision is driven by the significant increase in transport, packaging, energy, mining, labor and maintenance costs.

To ensure its long-term sustainability, Imerys Performance Additives continuously invests to add capacity to meet market demand, renew equipment to improve productivity and meet increasingly stringent Health, Safety and Environmental standards, implement best-in-class Quality and Traceability protocols and support innovation. 

In spite of on-going and intensive cost control efforts, Imerys Performance Additives cannot continue to absorb these cost increases and will consequently raise its prices in January 2018.

Imerys Performance Additives Division remains committed to offering world class customer service and quality products.

A responsible approach from mine to market

 

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)

We have completed Life Cycle Assessments that quantify the environmental effects associated with making our products for many of our product ranges. Data gathered for these LCAs can be extracted to produce Life Cycle Inventories (LCI), which provide quantitative data on the significant environmental impacts of our products, including energy and natural resource used, and waste generated. This LCI data is available to customers and research institutions.

We are committed to ensuring that our products are safe for people and the environment - from the time we mine our deposits through to our products' ultimate use in hundreds of applications. We have established a reputation for reliability in this area among customers, employees, neighbors, and health and safety officials, based on our product stewardship standards and practices.

We employ the best available technology and follow exacting procedures to ensure that these standards and practices meet or exceed product safety requirements everywhere we do business. These procedures are subject to regular audits conducted by internal and independent experts.

We source our talc from some of the purest talc mines in the world with the highest quality rock formations. Through independent geological analysis of targeted rock formations we confirm the purity and quality of the talc before it is even mined.

After extracting the rock from the earth, we test the mineral to ensure it meets or exceeds purity standards prior to shipping. Upon arrival at the production facility, a secondary round of testing is conducted before processing.  In addition to this rigorous two-step purity test, we utilize a third test on the final product to ensure the validity of the ongoing safety screening.

All tests of talc purity and quality are independently validated. Industry specifications clearly state that cosmetic-grade talc must be pure. Imerys talc exceeds those standards for all products. As an additional layer of quality assurance, we work with a third-party testing organization to ensure that our talc is pure.

Our product stewardship procedures also include:

  • Mapping our deposits and practicing selective mining as needed to avoid impurities - including those that occur naturally in many ore bodies
  • Sampling and testing the ores we mine and purchase to analyze their composition, quality and safety
  • Sampling and testing our finished products to ascertain their composition, quality and safety
  • Investing in equipment and monitoring and encouraging safe workplace behaviors
  • Taking health, safety and environmental impacts into consideration when developing new products and applications
  • Developing safety information for people who work with our products at every stage in the supply chain

We also commission independent research on the health effects  of our products - and complete life cycle assessments to measure their environmental impact and support our customers' own SD agendas.
