Wollastonite is an industrial commodity, and is the only naturally occurring, non-metallic, white acicular mineral. Because of its unique cleavage properties, wollastonite breaks down during crushing and grinding into needle-shaped particles of varying acicularity. This particular morphology imparts high-strength and is of considerable importance in many markets and applications, ranging from plastics and ceramic tile to vehicle brake pads, thermal insulation board, paints, protective industrial coating and agriculture. It is also used as a replacement for short-fiber milled fiberglass and short-fiber asbestos. The combination of high brightness and low gas release when heated creates a major demand in the ceramic industry, and the brilliant whiteness is of major importance to its use in the coatings of the industry and filler markets.Wollastonite applications are endless.
