WHAT IS DIATOMACEOUS EARTH

Diatomaceous earth is made from the fossilized remains of tiny, aquatic organisms called diatoms. Their skeletons are made of a natural substance called silica. Over a long period of time, diatoms accumulated in the sediment of rivers, streams, lakes, and oceans. Today, silica deposits are mined from these areas.

Silicon, a component of silica, does not exist naturally in its pure form. It usually reacts with oxygen and water to form silicon dioxide. Silicon dioxide has two naturally occurring forms: crystalline and amorphous. Most diatomaceous earth is made of amorphous silicon dioxide. However, it can contain very low levels of crystalline silicon dioxide.

Uses for Diatomaceous Earth:

  • Insulation in fireproof cabinets and safes
  • Calcium silicate boards
  • Water purification
  • Animal feed
  • Crops
  • Water filtration
  • Oil absorbents
  • Insecticides

Features:

  • Hygienically packed
  • Long shelf life
  • Purified form
