HIGHLIGHT STORY
Nepheline Syenite a Leading Alternative to Silica Sand
Covia continues to gain market share by providing Nepheline Syenite as one of the leading fillers in architectural coatings, as an alternative to silica sand. This growth is projected to continue, driven by ever-tighter regulations, performance improvement vs. calcium carbonate, customer consolidation, and innovation. The current Polymers business is highly concentrated in Nepheline Syenite sales as an anti-blocking for plastic film, and further growth is expected to come from market share gains and geographical expansion.
