Description

White odorless powder; [Zeolyst International MSDS]

Sources/Uses

Crystalline hydrated alkali-aluminum silicates that occur in sedimentary and volcanic rocks, altered basalts, ores, and clay deposits; There are at least 40 known zeolite minerals and a number of synthetic zeolites commercially available; Used as molecular sieves, filters, adsorbents, catalysts, drying agents, cation exchangers, dispersing agents, and detergent builders; [Merck Index] Used in the chemical, electrical-electronics engineering, fuel, paints-lacquers-varnishes, personal-domestic use, building and construction, electrical appliances, petroleum refining, and cement industries; Used as an absorbent/adsorbent, complexing agent, cleaning/washing agent, catalyst, and cement; [IUCLID] Have been widely used in industry since the 1940's, with applications including construction, paper, and agriculture; Synthetic forms find uses in detergents, as catalysts, adsorbents, and desiccants; [IARC] Permitted for use as an inert ingredient in non-food pesticide products; [EPA] Used as a catalyst; [Zeolyst International MSDS]

Comments

Not a skin irritant or sensitizer; [IUCLID] Not considered hazardous by GHS classification; Dust may cause mild eye irritation; [Zeolyst International MSDS] See "Sodium aluminosilicate."
