Pumice is a volcanic ash which is formed when lava is permeated with gas bubbles during the solidification process. Pumice is very fragile and breaks apart quite easily into small particles. Because lava has similar properties and chemical make-up as glass, pumice is very abrasive but unlike glass, it is very soft. Pumice is the softest abrasive media in use today.

Pumice powder abrasives are especially used in electronic, metal, wood, plastic, glass, jewelry, health care industries for purposes such as TV screen burr correction and the polishing, round wood preparation and polishing, metal preparation and polishing, jewelry retouch and polishing, sand blasting method for the engraving and embroidery, fabric finishing, glass and crystal pre-polishing, deburring and computer chips cleaning, dental prosthesis preparation and polishing, cleaning tablets printing.

What is the purpose of using pumice in consumer and commercial applications?

Pumice is used as a mild but effective abrasion suitable for a multitude of uses, including in hand pumice soap and pumice hand cleaner. In soap, pumice gives it a light abrasive quality which easily removes almost any grease or grime imaginable. Because pumice is a soft media and a natural mineral, it isn't harsh or toxic to people or the environment.

For commercial applications, Pumice has become the most widely used grit in many manufacturing processes which require a mild abrasive characteristic. Couple this with the fact that pumice can be ground down into a micro-fine powder for handling the lightest of abrasion needs.

Regardless of the application, it is important to perform tests and formulation procedures in order to determine the best grade of pumice to use. The grain sizes required in hand soaps differ from facial uses. Using the incorrect grain size would prove ineffective and possibly damaging to the applied surface.

The one thing to remember is pumice is an abrasive and you do not want to use any product containing it for too long. For maximum effect and proper use, you will use circular motions when applying abrasive soap, scrubs, cleaners or polishers so as prevent "burning" an area from concentrating your actions.

You also do not want to put a lot of effort or "elbow grease" into applying the abrasive cleaner. It is not necessary and will only cause scratches or redness. Instead use a very light application of the scrub and wash and dry the cleansed area thoroughly. If you are polishing the finish on your car, just remove any residue with a soft lint-free cloth.

Moderation and a light touch are the keys to using any abrasive soap, cleaner or polisher.

Today, pumice is used in more than just abrasive soap and its ability as a versatile and mild abrasion additive is continually being expanded and innovated.

Why Pumice is the Abrasive of Choice? What makes pumice such a excellent additive for product applications that need to be both tough and gentle? Two reasons-

1. Formed from violent volcanic activity, light and frothy pumice is similar to glass in physical and chemical makeup, but unlike glass, pumice is a much softer abrasive-fine-ground pumice is the softest abrasive media you can use and ideal for applications where the quality of the finished surface is paramount.

2. Pumice is a natural and abundant mineral...non-toxic and completely inert-the ideal agent for products that need to deliver a thorough cleaning or a glossy shine without harsh chemicals.
