Description: A siliceous infusorial earth used, among other things, in the manufacture of explosives. Damage during transport can be caused by the absorption of moisture. May absorb ten times its own weight of water. If intended for insulating purposes, the loss by impregnation is slight. On the other hand, if the product is intended for use in connection with explosives, the depreciation is variable and in some cases must be considered a total loss.
