Quarzwerke Group is an independent international family business with 135 years of tradition and significant market position in the extraction, processing and refining of industrial minerals, mainly from its own deposits. More than 35 production sites are located in Europe.
Headquartered in Germany, the company is organized into six divisions and currently employs approximately 3,500 employees worldwide. The division HPF The Mineral Engineers has been developing and selling high performance fillers and additives for polymer systems based on natural and synthetic minerals for years. They are experts in customized surface treatment specially adapted on the customers requirements. The offered high performance fillers give polymer systems amazing functional and / or optical properties and are used around the globe. Since 2016, there is an HPF sales office in Seoul, South Korea. Furthermore the distributor Mostbros is able to deliver the functional fillers out of their warehouses in China.
The division HPF The Mineral Engineers helps to create unique system solutions by developing innovative and functional high-performance fillers and additives on a mineralogical and synthetic basis.To achieve this, we work hand in hand with the development departments of our customers.
Thanks to our experience and equipment we are in a position
to be able to perform predevelopment work on model formulations for our customers in the sectors
With our focus on polymer applications and composite products we help our customers worldwide to ensure productivity.
The HPF product portfolio is based on many different minerals such as silica, cristobalite, fused silica, wollastonite, mica and white fused alumina.

With the SILATHERM® product family, novel fillers have been developped that significantly increase the thermal conductivity of plastics while providing better mechanical strength. There are five main product lines: SILATHERM® 1360, SILATHERM® 1466, SILATHERM® Plus, SILATHERM® Lite and SILATHERM® Advance.
Kaolin TEC 110 is an extremely hexagonal quality with excellent reinforcing properties. By using the silanized types, the good mechanical properties and the incorporability are further improved. In addition, tests at the HPF Plastics Research Center showed that the use of Kaolin TEC 110 AST can significantly reduce the use of expensive flame retardants. On intense heating, kaolin releases crystal water and thus supports the effectiveness of the flame retardants. Since kaolin is a natural product, there is no additional environmental impact in case of fire.
ACRYSMART® is an intelligent masterbatch for acrylic glass. ACRYSMART® glass changes its permeability to light and solar radiation as a function of the ambient temperature. Thus, the acrylic sheets offer the advantage of automatic shading at higher temperatures and optimum use of daylight at low temperatures. Solar energy can be used in a controlled manner, thus saving heating or cooling energy. ACRYSMART® ensures a comfortable climate in humans, animals or plants. In addition, there are hardly any limits to creative freedom.
