Diatomaceous Earth (DE)
UMC offers a variety of Diatomaceous Earth grades. Each of our natural, calcined, and flux-calcined DE grades have low density, high porosity, and high surface area properities. All of the DE we offer is mined and processed in USA.
Due to the small size and porosity, it is perfect for filtration. The pores trap bacteria, suspended solids, and some viruses which make it a superior filter aid for industries such as pool & spa, beer, wine, fruit juices, syrup, and honey. Our SwimPool DE filters dirt, algae, and amoeba down to 3-5 microns to keep pools sparkling clean.
Diatomaceous Earth fillers are used as a flattening/matting agent in paints and coatings industry. The combination of their high brightness, irregular structure, and high absorption make it an excellent choice to alter gloss and sheen, extend primary pigments, and enhance coating adhesion. It can be included as a whitening agent and extender in white paints to reduce costs of TiO2.
