Industrial minerals are indispensable in people's daily lives, but rarely make headlines. Industrial minerals and materials encompass all mining that is not for fuel, metals or gemstones, and may include limestone (calcium carbonate), gypsum, barite, garnet, zircon, borates, salts, industrial sand, industrial diamonds, feldspars, soda ash, phosphates, talc and wollastonite. However, the highly competitive industrial minerals market drives a need for efficiency and innovation. Bruker knows that the analytical needs for industrial minerals are as varied as their uses.
