CristolBrite™

CristolBrite at 500x magniifcationCristolBrite - The Brightess Idea in Additives and FillersCristolBrite is thermally modified quartz, with rounded grain and narrow particle size. It is white, very bright, of high purity, does not absorb moisture and is chemically inert. CristolBrite is a highly engineered version of cristobalite, which we manufacture in our own plant, in the United States.

CristolBrite is a high purity silica, produced from synthesized cristobalite. To achieve and control CristolBrite's unique characteristics, we utilize C.E.D. cristobalite, which is synthesized using a proprietary, solid state, high heat, manufacturing process.


(photo) 500x - CristolBrite particles are characterized by a rounded grain morphology with a fissured surface and a high degree of whiteness.
