KAGALITE is porous natural pumice which contains rhyolite natural glass with a pale yellowish white. It is buried in the suburbs of Kanazawa city, Ishikawa prefecture in Japan.
We specialize in carrying out the complete process of excavating, washing, drying, packaging and inspecting to bring clients an exceptionally flawless product.
KAGALITE is one of the most ideal materials for removing slag in molten metal since it has so many precise features such as fire resistance, heat insulation, non-water, non-contamination, less heat reflection and oxidation resistance. Those unique features enable KAGALITE to have high efficiency as slag remover and have obtained a respected reputation in the metal casting fields.
KAGALITE is also highly acclaimed within the agricultural industry as it is more than competent as an agricultural chemical transporting means. By utilizing KAGALITE’s porous feature, let it absorb agricultural chemicals and allow it time to soak into the soil. In addition, no harm is done to agricultural produce as it is a 100% natural product.
Since it has gas purging effect, precise and smooth casting is available.
Due to KAGALITE’s fire resistance and light weight, it is used as a fire-proof paint which contains cement or plaster, as well as a general paint due to its easy coloring power.
KAGALITE is light and strong enough as well as being durable even if heated. Since it is a mineral substance, it does not produce harmful gas in the event of fire. This makes it suitable as an interior or exterior wall material and it prevents due condensation to its porosity.
KAGALITE is mixed with molding soil for plants such as bamboo and cacti, house plants, etc. It helps to keep water and oxygen in the soil and promotes plant growth.
