ZAR-MIN is a natural zeolite, a mineral of volcanic origin, and is the clinoptilolite crystal type of natural zeolite. The three dimension honeycomb structure of ZAR-MIN has a large surface area and high cation exchange capacity or ionic buffering capacity.
- Surface Area: 22 square meters per gram
- Cation Exchange Capacity: 1.65 meq/g
The 22 meters per square gram equates to about 4,900 square feet per pound.
ZAR-MIN natural zeolite is low in sodium and high in potassium and calcium compared to other natural zeolites. Since ZAR-MIN is a natural product there can be some minor variations in the final product:
|Silicon as silicon dioxide (SiO2)||64 – 70%||68.9|
|Aluminum as alumina (Al2O3)||10 – 12||11.1|
|Potassium as potassium oxide (K2O)||3 – 5||4.5|
|Calcium as calcium dioxide (CaO)||1 – 3||1.6|
|Magnesium as magnesium oxide (MgO)||0.1 – 0.5||0.4|
|Sodium as sodium oxide (Na2O)||0.5 – 2||0.8|
|Water or Moisture||< 12||11.0|
