Formulations/Preparations:
•grades: crude; washed; air-floated; usp; fibrous (99.5%, 99.95%). •talc, when it is isolated as a pure mineral, has a composition of 63.6% sio2, 21.89% mgo, and 4.75% h2o. however, as an industrial commodity, talc rarely approaches theoretical purity. •when the ultra fine grinds are used (mistron grades), they contribute to large surface areas, are non-reactive with sensitive toxicants and can be used in wettable powders.
