Operations Overview

Operations-Overview-01

The Micronized group operates primarily through two companies: Micronized Products (Pty) Ltd in Johannesburg and Pegmin (Pty) Ltd in Mica, near Phalaborwa.

Micronized Products Gauteng based in Benrose is a processing operation for talc, mica, kaolin and vermiculite (both raw and exfoliated), all of which are essentially inert and non-toxic, thus promoting overall environmental sensitivity.

Micronized Products Limpopo processes feldspar and silica sourced from our mining operation to various different client specifications

Pegmin (Pty) Ltd is a mining operation for feldspar, mica and silica.

The Micronized group, representing Disamtex Products (Brazil), also markets specialised tint extenders and processing aids for which it holds exclusive rights in South Africa.
