Global Minechem Corporation offers Potash Feldspar in India. Chemically, the feldspars are silicates of potassium, aluminium, having sodium, iron, calcium, barium with a mixture of these elements.
Most of the products we use on a day to day basis are produced with feldspars like glasses for drinking and protection, fiberglass used for insulation, the various types of floor tiles, shower basins in the bathrooms, and the household tableware.
Characteristics of Potash Feldspar
Feldspar is a largely abundant group of minerals in the earth’s crust, which forms around 60% of available terrestrial rocks. The deposits provided sodium feldspar and potassium feldspar with mixed feldspars. Feldspar minerals are an indispensable component in igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks, to such a level that the arrangement of a number of rocks having a base with required feldspar content. The mineralogical composition of most feldspar can be articulated in terms of the ternary system Orthoclase, Albite as well as Anorthite.

Key Usage of Potash Feldspar
Feldspar is an important part of our daily life and the two key properties which make feldspars practical to use for downstream industries are the availability of alkali and alumina content. Feldspars play an imperative role as fluxing agents in ceramics and glass applications, and also are utilized as functional fillers in the plastic, paint, rubber as well as in adhesive sectors.
