Torginol ColorMicas™ are unique metallic flakes that are used to provide a natural metallic luster to flooring systems. They are derived from a group of sheet silicate minerals known as mica. By separating the distinctive hexagonal atom arrangement of the mica minerals into sheet-like pieces, we’re able to create standardised flake sizes.
ColorMicas™ are available in six unicolour styles. These can be blended to match virtually any decor.

DKI Quartz is a light coloured mineral with a naturally rounded particle shape and a hardness rating of 7.0 (Mohs). It forms the main component for many of the dry blends and screed blends that we produce, but can also be supplied as a standalone product; we stock fifteen different particle grades as standard. Special mixes are made to order.
DKI Quartz is washed, dried and processed to meet various continental grade specifications (this is particularly important where the system specifies a particle grading with a tight tolerance). You can order a sample by calling our sales team on 01406 351988.
Dry Liquids is a term applied to liquids that are absorbed onto a carrier. Liquids that are difficult to handle or mix can be supplied in powder form – this makes them easier to store, transfer and dispense. Dry Liquids are usually based on amorphous precipitate silica, which gives activities of around 70%. Standard compositions are:
Other products can be produced on demand.
Expancel ultra-lightweight thermoplastic microspheres are used in a variety of manufacturing applications, including coatings, paper and board, speciality inks, automotive body fillers and much, much more. Expancel can be supplied in Wet Unexpanded (WU), Dry Unexpanded (DU), Wet Expanded (WE) or Dry Expanded (DE) format, or in Masterbatch (MB) form, where microspheres are pre-blended in a carrier to improve dispersion in thermoplastic applications.
If required, Expancel can be adapted according to the end-user application. It can also be pre-blended with dry materials and re-packed to bespoke unit sizes. To discuss your requirements with a member of the Boud Minerals sales team, please contact us on 01406 351988.
White Aluminium Oxide is often used to give anti-slip properties to a decorative surface. It does this without detracting from the overall appearance of the surface. As a mineral it is also very hard (9.0 Mohs) and very clean. Aluminium Oxide can be pigmented in bright whites and yellows to improve visibility in areas where safety is essential.
