Your questions answered

UFPCC  are fine grades for improving the rheology and mechanical performance of the end product, as well as innovative moisture control technology developed for moisture sensitive reactive systems. 

Our solutions are bio-based, renewable and recyclable raw materials. 

They reduce carbon footprint, help solve moisture control problems encountered every day by producers during production and storage, and offer many other beneficial aspects, such as antimicrobial properties, thermal conductivity (for e-mobility), improved workability and lightweighting solutions. 

Low moisture calcium carbonate, with the Omyabond product family, leads to energy savings and productivity gains.

Our UFPCC offering helps you maintain control of rheological and mechanical properties. If you are looking for a label free solution for heat and light stabilizer for SMP systems, then we recommend AddWorks IBC760. 

Moisture reactive formulations are based on polymers, plasticizers, additives and fillers. This can reach up to 60% of the entire formulation, bringing with it a significant amount of moisture that must be removed, leading to further costs. Omyabond technology mitigates the necessity of water removal, lowering production and energy costs. 

Low moisture fillers can eliminate the need for chemical moisture scavengers, and/or reduce cycle times during adhesive and sealant production. This enables the customer to be more flexible during the production process. 

Omyabond 120 and 520 are designed to provide independence from ambient humidity and deliver reliable performance regardless of climatic conditions. 

Ultra fine fillers and performance minerals provide rheological modification and help to reinforce the mechanical properties of the adhesive, improving flexibility and mechanical integrity. 

Formulations enhanced with lightweight fillers have a lower final product weight, leading to transportation savings. Lightweight fillers also offer excellent insulation properties, due to their low thermal conductivity, saving energy use and costs to the consumer. 

Sealants provide significant energy savings by providing weather sealing, excluding drafts and making homes and buildings more energy efficient. Their life can be extended by using UV light stabilizers and antioxidants to help provide a long-lasting seal which will insulate buildings for many years without needing to be replaced. 

Sealants can also provide protection from both high and low temperatures, maintaining an adhesive join when the individual parts of a building expand and contract at different times of day or year. 

A trusted partner for global distribution   

Omya partners with leading manufacturers of specialty materials to offer a full portfolio of pigments, binders and additives to customers worldwide.
