The gentle abrasive qualities of diatomaceous earth apply to the buffing and polishing of almost any metal—perfect for shining-up showers, sinks, faucets, and your finest dinnerware. And unlike chemical-laden polishing products, using diatomaceous earth for polishing is both natural and inexpensive. Ultrafine polishing can be accomplished using Dicalite 104, and for a coarser polish, use Dicalite SA3.
Our Fine Particle Size Vermiculite (FPSV) is an unparalleled filler in friction formulations. It’s properties are derived from exfoliated vermiculite that continue to meet the demands of thermal stability, reinforcing properties and the lubricating nature of gasket fields.
