Welcome to Minchem Ltd

Minchem Ltd was formed in the year 2000 by a management buy-out of the well-established Minerals and Chemicals division of Palabora Europe Ltd (then Mandoval Ltd), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Palabora Mining Co Ltd, South Africa, which in turn was part of Rio Tinto Plc.

Today we offer a range of specialised inorganic and mineral-based products for use in world markets in abrasives, animal feed, catalysts (industrial and auto), ceramics (advanced, fine and technical), chemical manufacture, healthcare, and other specialist areas. Carrying on from Palabora’s market leader position in Baddeleyite Zr products, our baseline is Zr oxides and reactive Zr chemicals.

We also supply aluminium oxides, cobalt chemicals and titanium slag and more.
