Dicalite’s industry-leading SA3 product exhibits industry-leading heavy metals content with arsenic and fluorine levels well below the industry standards and competitor products.Animal Feed Anti-Caking In addition to its anti-caking properties, diatomaceous earth has proven to be an effective nutrient catalyst for success in planting and animal feedings.

Seed Coatings

When used as a high-performance seed coating, natural diatomaceous earth can be a key to a crop’s success because it helps increase seed size and shape, allowing for mechanical planting. In addition, the diatomaceous earth will help hold and absorb moisture promoting seed germination.

Maximum Flowability and Anti-Caking

Diatomaceous Earth improves the flowability and mixability of animal feed. In a silo, wet grain, corn, and other types of feed will often stick together in clumps; adding diatomaceous earth helps to dry it out, break it up, and keep it from sticking in the silo.

Quality Control

As a pelleting aid, diatomaceous earth helps with the formation and the quality of pellets. It can be mixed in to lubricate grains that are being prepared into pellets, allowing them to slide easily through the die plate. The final product is a better pellet because it remains stuck together during transport and feeding.
