Customised Products and Contract Processing

Minchem HMP Ltd offer contract processing and customised products, as well as sourcing materials/minerals to meet customer requirements. Over the years we have built up a very good reputation for milling and associated processes.
Our individual bespoke blending services have provided customers with unique opportunities in areas of specialist technical ceramics, advanced ceramics, and refactories.
An example of some of the materials/minerals we have processed, including micronizing, milling, and blending to meet specific customer requirements are listed below.

Bauxite (dry powder or suspension)

Micronised Bauxite is produced from high temperature calcined Bauxite feedstock, which is substantially corundum crystals within a mullite matrix, and is milled to a specific, and controlled, particle sizing.
Uses: It is a natural source of dense hard Alumina for the abrasives industry. It is used to manufacture wear resistant ceramics.
MSDS and TDS are available upon request.

Calcined Alumina (dry powder or suspension)

Calcined Alumina sand is a pure calcined Alumina supplied to a specific controlled particle size.
Uses: This product has been developed as a body additive for hotelware products and for the ceramic and refractory industries.
MSDS and TDS are available upon request.

Zirconia (spray dried bodies)

Zirconia offers the traditional ceramic benefits of hardness, wear, corrosion, and thermal resistance, without the brittleness.
Uses: Speciality ceramics, catalyst support and refractory products.
MSDS and TDS are available upon request.

Speciality Products

Fused Yttria fully stabilised Zirconia grains for production of very high temperature refractory pieces, designed for use in strongly reducing atmospheres.
Fused Calcia stabilised Zirconia grains used to improve properties in Zircon Alumina refractories.

Kyanite (dry powder)

Kyanite is a polymorph with two other minerals: Andalusite and Sillimanite.
Uses: Primarily used for ceramic and refractory products
MSDS and TDS are available upon request.

Mullite (dried powders and blends)
Mullite is a high-quality Alumina and Silica mineral with a low iron, potassium, and sodium oxide levels.
Uses: Coatings and ceramic kiln furniture products, with an exceptionally low dust content specifically for the investment casting industry.
MSDS and TDS are available upon request.

Mulcoa is a low alkali calcined clay with consistent quality and chemistry.
Uses: Manufacture of high quality fired and monolithic refractory products.
MSDS and TDS are available upon request.
