Pyrophyllite Market: Overview
- Pyrophyllite, Al2Si4O10(OH)2, is a very soft, pale-colored phyllosilicate mineral composed of aluminum silicate hydroxide. It is found in two forms: crystalline folia and compact masses.
- Pyrophyllite has a sheet-like structure comprising two silicate layers sandwiched between a gibbsite layer
- Pyrophyllite is available in white, yellow, light green, red, or blue shades. Physical properties of pyrophyllite include low warm conductivity and low coefficient of advancement and protection from erosion from liquid metals. Pyrophyllite also displays high twisting obstruction.
- Pyrophyllite is used in a wide range of applications including filler in pesticides, cosmetics, rubber, paper, bleaching soap, and paints
- Pyrophyllite is available in the form of lumps. These lumps have low PH value, high whiteness, and high content of aluminum.
