Minerals Technologies To Build New Facility

Minerals Technologies Inc. will construct a facility in Chester, S.C., to produce Synsil(R) Products, a new composite mineral for the glass industry. "We are very pleased to announce that we will be building a plant to produce approximately 200,000 tons per year of Synsil Products, our innovative new raw material for the glass industry that we believe provides a value-added alternative to the conventional glass manufacturing process," said Paul R. Saueracker, chairman, president and chief executive officer. "This plant will be a merchant facility that will initially provide the material to a glass manufacturer that has signed a multi-year contract to purchase Synsil Products. We expect the plant to be operational in the fourth quarter of 2005." In glass production, Synsil Products facilitates quicker melting and integration of raw materials, allows higher yields, lowers furnace temperatures, reduces energy, increases throughput and reduces emissions.
