Tell you directly how the diatomite wall material is formed

- Aug 20, 2018 -

The diatomite wall material itself is a wall material that has the functions of heat preservation, heat insulation, prevention of condensation, humidity control, sound insulation, elimination of odor, and artistic style. It has caused widespread among many architects, design companies and designers. Eyes.

Not the higher the content of diatomaceous earth, the better! In theory, the higher the content of diatomaceous earth, the better, but the excessive content will affect the conventional performance of diatom mud, and there is a problem of insufficient bonding strength. So the right proportion of diatomaceous earth is one of the factors that make it a diatom mud.


In general, the proportion of diatomaceous earth in the formulation is greater than 15% by mass to achieve the functionality of diatom mud, and the general mass fraction is controlled at 20% - 40%.


The quality of diatomaceous earth also affects the functionality of diatom mud, and there are many factors affecting the quality of diatomite, such as: diatomite pore size, pore volume, specific surface area, surface chemical position, etc.


The diatom mud is an environmentally-friendly decorative wall material with its inorganic material composition. It does not contain benzene-based substances and liquid volatile substances, so it does not pose a threat to human health even when it is renovated.


Inorganic materials are generally alkaline, so the pH value of diatom mud is generally between 7 and 13. The pH of diatom mud of different products is also different, but generally close to neutral. However, alkaline is beneficial to the environment and can inhibit the proliferation of bacteria and fungi.


First, the humidity control function

The humidity control effect of diatom mud is mainly the use of diatomaceous earth and inorganic gelling materials to form more internal pores and a large specific surface area to achieve adsorption and desorption of water molecules.


Second, purify the air

After the diatom mud and the water wall are solidified, there are micropores between the surface inorganic particles, and these micropores are prone to harmful gases entering the interior of the wall material.


Third, anti-mold and anti-condensation

The inorganic material of diatom mud is not suitable for the growth of microorganisms, so it is not easy to mold with respect to those wallpapers and latex paints; the diatom mud prepared by long and large surface area diatomaceous earth has higher temperature on the surface of the coating. Or below the dew point, it can quickly absorb and release water vapor to achieve anti-condensation.
