Piqua Materials-Industrial Products
Piqua Materials Inc. is located in the heartland of the plastics and elastomeric industries, providing a cost savings on freight and shorter time in transit. Most Piqua Materials Fillers (PMFs) are available in dated, coded bags, palletized, and stretch wrapped. Piqua also offers some products in super sack and bulk for pneumatic transport. Day-to-day quality control on filler production is maintained at the plant, which borders on the quarry site.
All Piqua Materials Fillers are produced from a high calcium limestone, which is quarried from the Brassfield geological formation, one of the whitest and most consistent formations in Ohio. A chemical analysis and Hunter Brightness results are available upon request.
