Silica is the principle glass-forming oxide making up approximately 60% of soda-lime-silica glass batch. Silica sand/quartz is heat resistant to approx. 1470°C and is used as a foundry sand in the manufacture of molds and cores for casting metals.
Feldspar are aluminosilicates with varying amounts of K, Na and Ca in a solid solution series; the main commercial feldspars lie between the sodium(albite) and potash (Microcline) rich end members, and the sodium end of the sodium-calcium series (Oligoclase).
Graphite is a naturally-occurring form of crystalline carbon. It is a native element mineral found in metamorphic and igneous rocks. Graphite is a mineral of extremes. It is extremely soft, cleaves with very light pressure, and has a very low specific gravity.
Zeolites are crystalline, hydrated aluminosilicates that contain alkali and alkaline-earth metals. Their crystal framework is based on a three-dimensional network of SiO4 tetrahedra with all four oxygens shared by adjacent tetrahedra.
Being a derivative of iron, it is red in color. The protective properties of Micaceous Iron Oxide(MIO) derive from its flake-like particle structure and chemical inertness. It is mainly used in marine paints and can be easily mixed with other colors.
Dolomite is a natural stone with double carbonate of calcium and magnesium having composition (CaCO3. MgCO3). It is formed in nature by action of magnesium-bearing solution (sea water, underground water or hydrothermal solution) on calcite — the process being called dolomitization.
When HSCAS is added in the animal food, the chemical compounds provide protection to the stomach (enterosorbent), which quickly via adsorption phenomenon binds to aflatoxins and the molds & bacterias releasing them, from the digestive tract and thus reduce their presence in the animal.
