Diatomite Earth and Japanese Wall

Diatomite Earth (DE) is natural occurring substance, comprised of very porous fossilized remains of planktons or green algae. Two to three million years ago these fossils accumulated along sea beds, rivers and lakes to form a soft chalk-like sedimentary rock. The typical chemical composition of diatomaceous earth is 86% silicon, 5% sodium, 3% magnesium and 2% iron.

Each granule of diatomite contains millions of microscopic, hollow, perforated cylindrical shells, resulting in an inert, light-weght, highly porous, and powerful absorbent material. It is said that Diatoms are important as they make up 1/4 of the earth's plant life and produce at least 1/4 of the O2 we breathe.

Diatoms are microscopic and composed of high contents of silica. Because of its inert properties, it's also been widely used in filtration aid for wine and beer making, and also in biotechnology industry. The many beneficial characteristics of DE are mainly a result of Microscopic pores in the plankton. Its high porous characteristic allows it to absorb gases, noxious material, soluble fertilizing agents, sealing wax, pasteboard, rubber erasers, fatty and acid material. It is also a good sound insulator and mechanical insecticides.

Tests done show that its porous properties (from the number of fine pores) drive up the absorption rate of formaldehyde, thus making it a safe product.

Japanese Wall is manufactured through eco-friendly process.
