Imerys Perlita Tucumán is the main producer and processor of perlite in South America, with over 40 years of experience.
It began its business in 1967 as a subsidiary of Johns Manville Corporation, under the name Siflo Argentina, to later become Perfiltra S.A.
In May 2007 it was acquired by the French group IMERYS, the world leader in production and marketing of non-metallic minerals. Thus, our company is part of the PERFORMANCE & FILTRATION MINERALS division of IMERYS.
IMERYS has production plants in Brazil, Argentina and Chile.
Our vertically integrated company extracts its main raw material, perlite, from deposits it exploits in the province of Salta. These deposits, located in the Argentine Andes, have unique features due to the quality of the material and the size of the reserves.
The products are manufactured at its industrial plants of San Antonio de los Cobres, province of Salta, and Banda del Río Salí, Tucumán. These plants, equipped with the highest technology, meet the most stringent international standards, such as the ISO 9001/2008 and ASTM.
