"Diatomaceous earth grades-applications"
Dental impression material
Diatomaceous earth products with a very high Blue Light Reflectance of approximately 95, high water absorption capacity of > 200 g/l and a surface (BET) of around 2 m²/g are extremely well suited for the use as functional fillers, among other things for the production of decorating paper.
The sharp-edged diatom structures cut their way through the exoskeleton of, for instance, ants which then dry out. Our natural diatomaceous earth grades with a crystalline silica content of < 0.1% are safe for children and pets, too.
Our natural, uncalcined diatomaceous earth products with a low specific content of Al2O3 and Fe2O3 are extremely well suited for the use as catalyst carriers, for instance for nickel, cobalt, copper, sulphuric acid and also for the food industry (fat catalysts).
Our heat-resistant, very light diatomaceous earth grades with an apparent density of approximately 120-140 g/l are ideal functional fillers for the production of refractory materials, heat insulating boards and fireproof boards.
By means of defined particle distribution with an average size of approximately 8 µ, our readily calcinated diatomaceous earth grades are excellent inert materials for centrifugal casting.
