Celite® Optimize your product formulations

Diatomite is a natural fossil-phytoplankton based amorphous silica deposit with an intricate network of pores. As a result, it has a characteristic high porosity with 85% of the volume occupied by the air.

Other benefits include low density, large specific surface area, very high adsorption capacity, stable chemical properties, and high thermal stability, and hardness making it an attractive choice for a wide range of adhesive and sealant applications.

Key Benefits:

  • Hardness
  • Enhanced reinforcement
  • Tack control
  • Rheology control
  • Cure control

Celite® is suitable for use in:

  • Elastomeric assembly joints
