SiLiBeads® Type ZS 4.1

Zirconium silicate ceramic beads – sintered beads
The sintered beads have a very dense, homogeneous structure due to the special production method. All grinding systems therefore exhibit significantly better wear behavior than conventional zirconium silicate beads.

Paint and varnish industry:

  • grinding ink and coating systems in the medium viscosity range, mostly water-based systems.
  • grinding dyes for dyeing textiles and plastics
  • grinding inorganic and organic pigments.

Plant protection:

  • dispersing fungicides, herbicides and insecticides.

Filler and coating industry:

  • preparation of whiteners (CaCO3) for paper production.
  • for grinding coatings for video and audio tapes.

Mining industry:

  • for grinding minerals and precious metals
