Diatomaceous Earth – All types of liquids

Higher absorption capacity than Sepiolite. Diatomaceous earth granules 15/10. Bag of Diatomaceous Earth of 20 kilos per bag.


Granular absorbent with high absorption capacity:

Diatomaceous earth has ideal characteristics for its widespread use in industry. Its natural origin and its capacity to absorb all types of liquids make it the ideal absorbent to intervene and contain industrial spills or spills.

This granulated mineral absorbent has a high absorbent and anti-slip capacity, it can act effectively against any spill related to oils, fuels, gasoline, chemical products, flammable, toxic, corrosive substances, etc. With a small amount of diatomaceous earth you can stop and eliminate leaks and spills in any environment.

Due to its natural origin, it is totally innocuous, has low density and high porosity, making it a powerful and effective option for resolving incidents related to spills and spills of liquids that could contaminate the environment.

As for its characteristics, diatomite is produced as a mineral powder, which has been previously calcined at 700 ºC, its grain size (granulometry) ranges from 0.5 mm to 1 mm, and due to the irregular shape of these grains, it has a high anti-slip capacity, as mentioned above.

It is recommended for industries such as:

  • Mechanical and industrial workshops
  • Warehouses and chemical laboratories
  • Farms
  • Gas stations
  • Highways and all types of roads.
  • Asphalt roads.
