China Clay falls under Kaolinite group of clays. Clay It is having the usual compositions of Al2O3, 2SiO2, 2H2O, Hydrous Aluminium Silicate. China Clay has a good plasticity, does not swell in water, stands high temperature (up to 1300C) & is non conductor of heat & electricity.
Talcum powder or Talc is a hydrated silicate of magnesium Talcum3MgO, 4SiO2, H2O. It possesses the distinction of being the softest mineral & has a characteristic soapy feel. It has got high dielectric strength, High thermal conductivity & Low electrical conductivity. It finds its application in, as filler in Plastics, Polishes, and soaps. Steatite, Talc, Soapstone are the three terms used in trade for the same material
Mica is one of the wonderful bounty of nature which occurs in pegmatite usually in book form & can be cleaved up to 0.25 millimeters in thickness. Mica is chemically silicate of aluminium with some water of crystallization containing one or more elements like potassium, sodium, magnesium, lithium, vanadium, & iron. Of all the species known muscovite & paragonite are of commercial importance. It is available as both dry ground Mica and wet ground Mica.
Diatomaceous Earth also known as diatomite or kieselgur, is a naturally occurring, soft, siliceous sedimentary rock that is easily crumbled into a fine white to off-white powder. It is a white to off white powder which is used in various industries (.) Caltrons CALTOMAC CLAY is processed and beneficiated to enable its usage for various industries (.)

Uses of Diatomaceous
Barisol(Barium Sulphate)is chemically synthetic Barium Sulphate with modified surface. The chemical is snow white in color and gives good shade and brightness to the product it is used in. The ultra fine particles act as a spacer for prime pigments and hence contribute to the hiding with very high gloss in end application.
Paint & Pigments
Barisol(Barium Sulphate)or Blanc Fixe is used in industrial paints and its good mechanical properties makes it a high quality functional extender for standard powder coating systems. The chemical is suitable for the cost optimization of formulations via increased hiding power and possible partial replacement of pigments.
Automotive Paint Systems
For use in ex-tender systems, due to gloss retention and excellent mechanical properties.
High Solids Paints: Partial substitution of Sachtleben micro for other pigments achieves significant reduction of volatile matters.
Due to its chemical resistance to acids and alkalis (e.g. acid-glued papers), BARISOL (BARIUM SULPHATE) OR BLANC FIXE is particularly suitable for use as a filler in the pulp. For use in black and colored pigmented, wax and resin impregnated papers, thanks to its color neutrality. Blanc Fixe has a beneficial effect on porosity (reduction of mottling). Can also be used as a pigment in paper sizes, with a high whiteness. Plastics and rubber For use as an extender in color sensitive thermoplastics systems and for high gloss plastic surfaces. Also suitable for use in glazes and impregnation agents, grinding pastes, lubricants and separating agents, additives and soaps.
Decorative Papers : By expelling air in the pores. More uniform resin penetration and reduction of mottling in colored decorative papers.
Ideal Properties for Paper Making: High whiteness, gloss and good printability (in cardboard and paperboard sizes, Heaviness increases the GSM of paper.
Plastics and Rubber Thermoplastics: Enhances the efficiency of coloured pigments in master batches and pastes. imparts a feeling of quality and luxury. Has a positive effect on mechanical and visual properties, in particular impact strength and gloss, in thermoplastic compounds. Elastomers: Particularly suitable as an extender, since free of rubber toxins.no effects on storage stability and resistance to aging.
Caltron's diatomaceous earth powder is very effective for bed bugs treatment, pest and ticks treatment. It is 100% safe for use and non toxic. Being food grade It certainly ensures safety and hygiene. Used by many throughout India and abroad with high success rate, this product is certainly very effective and economical.
Caltron's Diatom Powder food grade for bed bugs/ pest/ ticks 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.
How does Caltron's Diatomaceous earth work?
Caltron's Diatom Powder food grade for bed bugs/ pest/ ticks is not poisonous; it does not have to be eaten in order to be effective. Diatomaceous earth (DE POWDER) causes insects to dry out and die by absorbing the oils and fats from the cuticle of the insect's exoskeleton. Its sharp edges are abrasive, speeding up the process. The diatomaceous earth powder dries up the water content and forces the bugs to dehydrate and die. It remains effective as long as it is kept dry and undisturbed.
What Types of Critters is DE Useful On?
DE - both food grade and forms containing additional pesticides - is effective on anything with an exoskeleton. This means insects (anything with six legs) and non-insect arthropods (eight or more legs). Crawling and hiding insect, spider, and scorpion pests will contact crack and crevice treatments, so DE is an excellent option for these areas.
Some Unknown Facts:
Bed bugs are persistent. Eradicating, exterminating or just killing an entire infestation requires persistence.
