Of all the mines of the Middle-Lower Yangtze Metallogenic Belt, it is the Fengjiashan wollastonite mine (also known as the Daye copper mine) which has become most significant to mineral collectors during the past ten years.
In the Balti TPP secondary Ca-silicates are represented mainly by [beta]-C2S (belite), merwinite and wollastonite; while in the Eesti TPP also C3S, rankinite, as well as C4AF and akermanite are found.
In HDPE filled with talc or wollastonite, which were established to be stable samples in our previous work (9), no obvious oxidation was measured from the surface to the center at any stage throughout the duration of the test period.
NYCO, a pioneer in the production and use of fine-diameter, high-aspect-ratio wollastonite reinforcement, offers a new-generation product, Nyglos 4W, which has been shown to enhance the performance of vertical automotive body panels made with engineering alloys and liquid crystal polymers.

Other surface-modified inorganic extenders, pigments, and fillers are Trikup (alumina trihydrate), Monykup (antimony oxide), Titankup (titanium dioxide), Wollastokup (wollastonite), Carbokup (calcium carbonate), Silikup (silica), and Klakup (aluminum silicate).
The associate species for the modeling of the liquid phase include CaSi[O.sub.3] (wollastonite) which is stable between 298 to 1398 K, CaSi[O.sub.3] (pseudowollastonite) which is stable at 1398 to 1817 K, [Ca.sub.2]Si[O.sub.4] (calcium othosilicate), [Ca.sub.3]Si[O.sub.5] which is stable in the temperature range from 1523 to 2343 K and Ca3Si2O7 (rankinite) which is stable up to 1737 K [17].
Commonly used mineral fillers for isotactic polypropylene (iPP) include talc, calcium carbonate, glass fibers, and wollastonite. Because of its acicular crystal habit and a relatively high-level hardness, wollastonite (CaSi[O.sub.3]--calcium metasilicate) contributes to the iPP composites reinforcing properties [2-4].

In the present work, biocomposites containing bioglass ceramic Apatite Wollastonite (AW) and Polymethamethacrylate (PMMA) were processed successfully using PIM.
In the front fascia, the material is reinforced with mica by means of a Bayer-patented technology, while the rear fascia, rocker panels, rear bumper cover, and the spoiler are reinforced with wollastonite. These mineral fillers are added directly to the polyol blend to produce the RRIM parts.
These garnets are associated with a mineral of the wollastonite group, as masses of white fibers (the crystals were enclosed in these soft, fibrous masses, and thus were protected from damage during blasting and collecting).
