N-30: The Dynamic Absorbent

N-30 is your go-to solution for effectively solidifying a broad spectrum of spills, ensuring easy and safe disposal. It’s the preferred choice for sludge solidification across various sectors, including water districts and refineries.

Thanks to its porous structure, N-30 boasts an impressive ability to absorb 3-5 times its weight in liquids. The varied particle sizes (8 to 200 mesh) enhance its absorption efficiency, making it a robust and reliable choice.


N-40: The Pool Base and Cement Enhancer

Building on the strengths of N-30, N-40 offers a larger particle size, making it ideal for pool bases and cement mixes. It’s designed to integrate seamlessly into your projects, providing a lighter, more insulative finish.

N-40’s larger particles (6-12 mesh) are optimized for mixing with cement, typically at a 4 to 1 ratio. This creates a lighter product that doesn’t compromise on strength or insulation.


The Cryogenic and Plaster Pro

N-50 is designed as a specialized cryogenic/plaster aggregate grade. This dual-purpose grade functions effectively both as an absorbent and a filler, with a precise 30/50 mesh grade tailored for specific applications.

N-50 is a testament to versatility, combining lightweight properties, insulation, and absorbency. Its multifaceted nature makes it suitable for a wide array of uses, ensuring efficiency and quality in every application.
