Pumice fine powder is being used increasingly in the paint and coatings industry, this is an alternative to traditional fillers due to its low density and unique particle morphology. Pumice powder provides Interior paints with Burnish resistance, flatting, low sheen and low film porosity. The use of Pumice in exterior paints and stains provides outstanding tint retention, mildew resistance acid resistant giving frost free surface and increased cracking and flaking resistance. Pumice powder can also be mixed into emulsion paints to change their colour or simply mixed with water to use as a wash. The hardness, chemical resistance, and abrasive qualities of pumice powder, also make it deal for floor and deck coatings. Pool deck coatings have been successfully formulated with pumice powder and in some cases pumice grains for a number of years.

Pumice Aggregate is seen as a preferred choice to other materials in construction due to its lightweight. Where the pumice is a third lighter than other materials, it is easily and cheaply transported by either men on site or by haulage. When the pumice is used in a concrete mix, it increases the elasticity of the product, providing a more flexible compound. This is beneficial for high rise buildings which have to cope with additional natural elements like wind or storm natural forces. Pumice Aggregate is a user friendly product for the workforce when completing tasks such as drilling or sawing. Also being a volcanic rock Pumice in a concrete compound delivers a higher fire rating protection compared to other replacement aggregates.

Pumice Grains have been used in liquid, solid and gel abrasive hand soaps for decades. Today Pumice Powders and Grains are a natural alternative to plastic microbeads. Pumice is now widely used in foot scrubs, hand cleaners, body & shower gels, facial scrubs and even kitchen surface cleaners.
In soap, Pumice offers a light abrasive quality which easily removes almost any grease or grime. Because Pumice is a soft media and a natural mineral, it isn’t harsh or toxic to people or the environment.
Moderation and a light touch are key when applying any abrasive soap, cleaner or polish. Applying too much pressure while applying an abrasive cleaner can cause scratches or redness. Instead, use a very light application of a scrub and wash and dry the cleansed area thoroughly. If you are polishing a car remove any residue with a soft lint-free cloth. Always use circular motions when applying abrasive soap, scrubs, cleaner and polish to prevent “burning” an area from concentrated actions.
Today Pumice is used in more than just abrasive soap and its ability as a versatile mild abrasive additive is continually being developed in new markets.
