High quality, stable supply and low cost are achieved through the best raw materials and latest equipment
Fimatec’s calcium carbonate products, “FMT,” is an ultra-fine particle pigment for coating that is ground underwater by a highly efficient pulverizing machine developed by Fimatec. We carefully select high-quality, high-whiteness, and easily-crushable raw ore, and by using our unique grinding technologies that we have accumulated over time, we maintain a stable and high-quality product.
Our “FMT” products maintain high whiteness and have excellent fluidity with a high share. Coating for coated paper with a high content of FTM enables high-speed coating at high concentrations, making it possible to produce high-whiteness, high-gloss coated paper. The slurry also makes handling easier, and it contributes to reducing the amount of binders and drying costs due to high-concentration coating.

Features of FMT Products
|FMT-65||A grade with 65% of particles having a particle size of 2 μm or less, suitable for matte coated paper, dull coated paper, and double coats for undercoating.|
|FMT-90||A general-purpose grade with 90% of particles having a particle size of 2 μm or less, ideal for high-grade art paper and high-quality coated paper, as well as lightweight and ultra-lightweight coated papers.|
|FMT-97||A fine particle grade with 97% of particles having a particle size of 2 μm or less, which gives a high gloss to coated paper and has high whiteness and excellent fluidity.|
|FMT-100||An ultra-fine grade with 100% of particles having a particle size of 2 μm or less, which gives a higher gloss to coated paper compared to the 97%-grade.|
|FMT-OP||An ultra-fine grade with 98% or more particles having a particle size of 2 μm or less. Has an overall sharp particle distribution because the distribution of the particles is controlled.
It gives high gloss and opacity to coated paper.
In addition to the above grades, we can supply products tailored for your needs.
