Raw materials

logo_miningMinerali Industriali supplies raw materials in Italy and abroad for several industrial applications: glass and ceramic industries (tiles, sanitary ware, and paint factories), sport and leisure, foundry, agglomerated stones, paints and varnishes, sodium silicate.

 

Silica

Product: Quartz, quartz sand, granite
Applications: Agglomerated stones, sanitary ware, ceramic, glass, paints and varnishes, sport and leisure, filtration, glass fibre
Production sites: Italy, Europe, North Africa, Central America, South America

We offer a wide range of quartzes, quartz sands, and granites from a variety of quarries and mines.

After extraction, minerals undergo a series of treatments to obtain very pure finished products free from contaminants (magnetic separation, iron removal, leaching, optical sorting).

The range of finished products includes different grain sizes from granules to powders.

Clays

Product: Clays, kaolin
Applications: Ceramic, sanitary ware, bricks, tiles
Production Sites: Italy, South America

Several quarries and extraction plants provide clays for the production of red body tiles and bricks.
The extracted material undergoes lump breaking and lamination, and is finally mixed to guarantee even characteristics over time.
The kaolin of some quarries is much appreciated in the production of sanitary ware, lacquers and porcelain stoneware bodies due to its whiteness.
Finished products are available with different grain sizes to meet all different industrial requirements.

Feldspars

Product: Soda and potassium feldspar
Applications: Ceramic, paints and varnishes, sanitary ware, glass
Production Sites: Italy, Europe, North Africa, Central America, South America

We offer a wide range of soda, calcium-magnesium, and sodium-potassium feldspars.
Raw materials are obtained from both environmental restoration works on abandoned sites formerly exploited by third-parties and from recently identified feldspar deposits.
After extraction, raw materials generally undergo different and specific treatments to increase their purity and reduce their Fe2O3 content.
Finished products are available with different grain sizes to meet all different industrial requirements.

Feldspathic sands

Product: Potassium feldspathic sands
Applications: Ceramic, paints and varnishes, sanitary ware, glass
Production Sites: Italy

High quality feldspathic sands are extracted, cleaned (for contaminant removal), dried, and finally screened and ground.
The range of finished products covers different grain sizes and levels of purity.

Glassy sand

Product: Fillers and granules from recycled glass
Applications: Glass
Production Sites: Italy

Thanks to waste separation we obtain glass that, after proper treatment, can be re-used in several production processes.
Raw cullet is cleaned to remove contaminants, then dried and ground to obtain different grain sizes.

Other products and/or services

Product: grog, sanitary ware scrap, alumina, ceramic bodies, granulation services, glassy foam (Savelpor)
Applications: ceramic, refractory materials, fertilisers, polymers
Production Sites: Italy

Our factories normally treat raw materials coming from other industrial processes: granulation and grinding of grog and sanitary ware scrap, grinding of several natural minerals for different industrial processes, granulation of several raw materials.
Versatility is a distinctive characteristic of our plants and allows us to be a reliable partner for customers needing to customise their products.
