Zeolite

All Lithos Natural products are based on specially prepared and processed zeolite depending on different applications.

What are zeolites?

Zeolites are aluminium-silicate minerals that have very wide internal surfaces (up to approx. 400 m2/g) due to their special micro-porous structure. As a result, zeolite can store an inimitable quantity of water or other substances.

In addition, zeolite has also a selective ion exchange property in relation to a special chemical composition (in this case, the highest clinoptilolite percentage possible is the decisive quality criterion).

The order of selectivity for the ion exchange looks like the following: Cs>Rb>K>NH4>Ba>Sr>Na>Ca>Fe>Al>Mg>Li

Unique characteristics:

These unique characteristics of zeolite can be better illustrated with the following structure model:
