Mondo Minerals

Mondo Minerals is the world’s second largest producer of talc. The company develops and sells special additives for paper, coatings and paints, plastics, ceramics, foodstuffs, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical products. DRIVE’s role is to appeal to business partners from the technical, scientific and economic sectors, especially in terms of quality, reliability and innovation. The result is a modern website that not only clearly shows how talc is virtually ubiquitous in everyday life but also, through its detailed profile of the different talc products, satisfies the demand of technologists and scientists for information and thus remains equipped to cater to new areas of application.
