Cristobalite

Product Snapshot

Product description
Cristobalite is a high purity silica produced by the calcination, at high temperature, of selected and treated quartz grains. The heat-modified crystal structure is then stabilised by fast cooling. It has narrow particle size distribution, excellent optical properties, constant whiteness, and chemical inertness.
Product uses
Cristobalite is used in the production of silicates, specialty plastics, coatings, precision-castings, and ceramics.
