Imerys Fused Minerals is a leading supplier of monoclinic and stabilised zirconia powders for use as additives into brake pad formulations for passenger cars and light truck applications. In addition, Imerys’s Fused Minerals’ monoclinic products were found to offer significant benefits when used in brake pads resulting in reduced pad and rotor wear, lower noise, improved thermal stability and reduced onset of fade.

Our low U+Th powders are made by an advanced electro fusion process followed by precision milling and sizing, ensuring that the powders are homogeneous in chemical composition and particle distribution resulting in very consistent lot to lot properties.
