Gilsonite is processed into various mesh sizes to suit different industrial applications. The mesh size indicates the particle size of the processed gilsonite, with common sizes ranging from 40 mesh to 200 mesh. Here is a general breakdown of the typical uses for different mesh sizes:

  • 40 mesh: Coarser particles used in applications like asphalt paving and roofing where larger particle size is beneficial for structural integrity.
  • 60 to 100 mesh: Medium-sized particles suitable for drilling fluids, foundry sands, and some types of coatings.
  • 200 mesh: Fine particles used in high-performance inks, paints, and some specialized coatings where a smooth, uniform finish is required.

The choice of mesh size depends on the specific requirements of the application, including the desired texture, blending characteristics, and performance attributes.
