Alumina is a natural raw material of mineral origin, which is composed of extremely fine silica particles and several micro minerals. This mineral substance can contain various types of silicates and metals. For example: titanium, magnesium, copper, zinc, aluminium, calcium, potassium, nickel, manganese, lithium, sodium and iron.
The aluminas originate in sedimentary rocks that dissolve over years (on a scale of thousands of years) and under climatic processes and absorb metals and other constituents on their way to the valley, river or lake.
(a) Mining in suitable locations under the control of the DNPM (National Department of Mineral production).
b) Drying in the sun to remove the natural moisture.
c) Grinding process without human contact.
d) Granulometric control by sieving.
e) Microbiological decontamination. Controlled heat pulses are used in this phase.
These aluminas are not irradiated and do not undergo any ionisation treatment.
Our kaolin contains a total of less than 40 ppm of the following heavy metals : arsenic + antimony + cadmium + mercury + nickel + lead.
