Microsorb LVM and RVM

Microsorb products come in the form of coarse gel, fine gel, and granular materials that meet the increasing demand for attapulgite. Attapulgite is a naturally mined needle-like clay mineral composed of magnesium aluminum silicate. Microsorb offers very good colloidal properties, such as rheology modification and particle suspension.  Granular products offer high-temperature endurance, salt and alkali resistance, and high adsorbing and de-coloring capabilities.

LVM
Microsorb LVM (Low Volatile Matter) product is a thermally activated, granular Attapulgite mineral that is suitable for a wide range of sorbent and filtration applications. The LVM product has good sorptivity and a high level of particle strength, resulting in lower attrition and fines.
 
RVM
Microsorb RVM (Regular Volatile Matter) products are thermally activated granular Attapulgite minerals that are suitable for a wide range of sorbent and filtration applications. The RVM products have a high level of sorptivity and an intermediate level of particle strength.

Microsorb LVM and RVM granular Attapulgite is available in a wide range of sizes and packaging to maximize end-use flexibility
