It’s an important concept to understand because mineral touch is the science of what happens to mineral surfaces under high heat.
When it comes right down to it, mineral touch in the real world has a lot to do with the way a mineral reacts under high pressure.
It is the chemistry of a mineral’s surfaces.
For a mineral that you touch, the surface chemistry of the mineral is going to be very different.
This is why, if you’re in the business of painting your house or landscaping, you’ll find it difficult to do a good job of painting in mineral-infused paint.
In fact, many homeowners prefer to do their work in water-based paint that has a mineral touch.
For the mineral touch industry, the biggest difference is that the mineral surfaces are coated in a chemical that creates an electrical field that can help to smooth the surface, protect it from water damage and protect the minerals from oxidation.
But mineral touch isn’t just about painting.
It’s also the science behind how a mineral surface behaves under high-heat conditions.
This is a story about chemistry.
It includes a story of mineral touch and a story that happens in mineral touch itself.
