Pumice is a light, porous volcanic rock that forms during explosive eruptions. It resembles a sponge because it consists of a network of gas bubbles frozen amidst fragile volcanic glass and minerals. All types of magma (basalt, andesite, dacite, and rhyolite) will form.
AUSPERL acts as agent for Industrial Processors Limited (INPRO) for the supply ofin the Australian market.
During an explosive eruption, volcanic gases dissolved in the liquid portion of magma expand rapidly to create a foam or froth; in the case of Industrial Processors Limited., the liquid part of the froth quickly solidifies to glass around the glass bubbles.

What is Pumice?
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, is very abrasive but unlike glass, it is very soft. Pumice is the softest abrasive media in use today.
What is the purpose of using
Pumice is used as a mild but effective abrasion suitable for a multitude of uses, including in hand soap and hand cleaner. In soap, gives it a light abrasive quality which easily removes almost any grease or grime imaginable. Because 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 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 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. One other very important key to achieving the desired results is consistency during manufacturing and grading of the particle size from one batch to the next. Select a supplier that constantly monitors and checks for particle size and shape conformity, in this way you can be sure of the quality of your products as well. The one thing to remember is 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, is used in more than just abrasive soap and its ability as a versatile and mild abrasion additive is continually being expanded and innovated.
