Global diatomite market: Use of diatomite in paints and coatings
The paints and coatings industry is one of the major end-user industries of the global diatomite market which is generating high demand for diatomite. Diatomite is used as an additive in paints and coatings as it adds strength, controls permeability, and improves the coating adhesion by increasing the volume of the content.
