Pyrophyllite is a phyllosilicate mineral formed of aluminum silicate hydroxide: Al2SiO10(OH)2. It occurs in two or less distinct varieties, namely, as crystalline folia and as compact masses; distinct crystals are not known. Pyrophyllite occurs in Phyllite and Schistose rocks, frequently associated with Kyanite, of which it is an alteration product.
Pyrophyllite has an abundance of alumina, which makes it extremely heat resistant and convenient for use in refractories and in the manufacture of ceramics,
It additionally has excellent thermal shock resistance that is preferred in the manufacture of ceramics.
It is used as a minor embellishing stone for carvings and sculptures,
The main usage of pyrophyllite is as a carrier for insectoids and is used as padding in these products,
We are engaged in offering a wide range of Pyrophyllite.
