New Agency Agreement: Perlitsan Industrial Raw Materials & Mining Inc. 18/05/2015

On 1 April 2015 Cometal S.A. and the Turkish producer “Perlitsan Industrial Raw Materials & Mining Inc.” have signed an exclusive distribution agreement for the perlites they produce.

Given its low density, many commercial applications for perlite have developed which include, e.g. perlites for metallurgical, agricultural use as well as for cryogenic insolation and construction applications .

The perlites for metallurgical applications are being used as slag binders with excellent results in many iron and steel foundries.
