Diatomite powder «ZABA»
Technical Standards 5716-001-87796306-2011


Diatomite powder is a filler obtained by a result of a special diatomite processing


It is used as rheological and water-retaining admixtures in the dry building mixes, mortars and cement that ensure uniformity of mixes, high consumer-oriented and technical properties, material fixation on the surface (the thixotropic effect), adhesion bond strength, prevent from caking and efflorescences, firm up the material structure, enhance durability.
