kieselguhr (diatomite)

Kieselgohr is a type of diatomaceous earth, a siliceous sediment of organic and fossil origin, consisting of the fossilized remains of diatoms. Its particle size is generally between 10 and 200 micrometers. Due to high porosity, it is soft and very light. This last feature allows it to be used for filtration in industry, especially for wine and brewing. It is also called diatom, celite, diatom and diatom.
Program scope
It is possible to use celite as an abrasive, for example, in toothpaste, but also for metal polishing. It is a mild abrasive.
– This material is used in the composition of certain cements and concretes.
It also acts as a natural and non-toxic pesticide, especially in organic farming: Silica particles cause lesions in the digestive system of insects, especially cockroaches, and surface lesions of the shell, which lead to their death due to dehydration. This method is also effective for killing bed bugs (see article).
– Porous, it can be used as thermal insulation.
