GELEEN, Netherlands -- January 17, 2013

Intertek,  a leading provider of quality and safety solutions serving a wide
range of industries around the world, has successfully completed a material
characterisation program by delivering polymer material and processing
knowledge in a time effective way for Mondo Minerals, Netherlands.

Mondo Minerals (“Mondo”) is the second largest producer of talc globally, with
a strong presence in Europe. The Company is a leading supplier of talc for
paper, paints & coatings, and plastics applications and has a growing presence
in a range of niche end-markets including technical ceramics, food, and
personal care. Mondo, which is headquartered in Amsterdam, has a secure and
well-placed talc ore reserve base in Finland with an estimated resource life
of well over 70 years. The company has state of the art processing facilities
in both Finland and The Netherlands.

Intertek, as an independent supplier of knowledge in the field of polyolefins
and related laboratory and technical services, assisted Mondo minerals with
further research on their products. The project included compounding and
injection molding trials and material characterisation programs.

Mr. Venema, Technical support manager plastics of Mondo Minerals, said, “We
were very happy with the amount of expertise in the field of polyolefins
Intertek has and the capability to response fast, which contributed to the
success of our project. This project gave us new technical data and material
insight assisting us in developing new and innovative Mondo minerals
products.”
