WEISSER QUARZ

Cristobalite

Cristobalite is synthetically produced by Quarzwerke by treating quartz sand at a high temperautre of 1500°C in a rotary kiln. This forms a cristobalite shell around a quartz core. As a result whiteness is increased and density reduced. It enjoys the same level of chemical inertness as quartz and so it is a suitable filler and extender in many different applications.

Features


    • Synthetic cristobalite produced from calcination of quartz sand.

    • Consists of a quartz core and cristobalite shell.

    • Solid grain with spherical shape.

    • White in colour.

    • Different grain sizes available.

Benefits


    • High level of chemical inertness making it suitable a wide range of formulations.

    • Excellent whiteness makes it an efficient extender.

Typical Applications


    • Emulsion-bound exterior paints and renders.
    • Dental impression composites.
    • Engineered stone made from PMMA, UP.
    • Silicone sealant compounds.
    • Anti-blocking additive in PP and PE film.
    • Road markings.
