Earlier this week, we announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office had issued US Patent 10253493, entitled “Particulates having high total solar reflectance.” The patent covers solar reflective particulate composition used for U.S. Silica’s White Armor® Cool Roof Granules. White Armor durable white granules reflect the sun’s heat instead of absorbing heat and transferring it to the building below. Customer results indicate that at least 70% of solar heat is reflected with White Armor Cool Roof Granules featuring the patented particulate composition.

Thanks to Emily Bell and VinePair for the tequila information.
Happy almost Cinco de Mayo! So you know that our diatomaceous earth filter aid filters the world's best beers, wines, whiskeys, brandy, sakes and a host of other alcoholic beverages, right? What about the world's largest producer of tequila? Yep, bingo. DE filters tequila, too. It's a great week to celebrate this made-in-Mexico drink, and learn a little about diatomaceous earth filtration and tequila.

How do you make the best beer? Is the ingredients? The hops, the malt, the barley? The recipe? The brewer? The fermenting process? Is it in how you store it?

Can't wait for a hot, sunny day, a perfectly clear swimming pool and a drink with an umbrella in it in your hand? Believe me, you're not alone. After a tough winter (that's still hanging around!), everyone is anxiously awaiting the summer swim pool season!

It's not easy being a farmer these days. Rising costs, declining crop margins, regulatory pressure, water issues and nitrogen runoff problems. All the while trying to reduce your impact on the environment. What's a farmer to do? Today, on National Agriculture Day, we salute and thank our agricultural producers for what they do for all of us.
