Another retraction ;-)

No, this one is totally self instigated this time ;-).

Since the previous post has probably got a lot of people rereading 
that original post from Nov 99, I feel I need to point out that I was 
incorrect when I stated the Kent product is not a ceramic (as I 
assume he was claiming at the time). In rereading it myself I decided 
to recheck my statements to be sure I was on firm scientific ground 
and it does turn out that aluminum oxide (alpha-Al2O3) is the mineral 
corundum, and sintered corundum is considered to be a ceramic.

So, since our PhosGuard is also aluminum oxide based I suppose we 
could market it as a "ceramic" but frankly I don't see the point... 
I'd rather point out why PhosGuard is better than competing products 
rather than point to innocuous information that is not any type of 
indicator as to product efficacy ;-)

Or, as Dennis Miller would say "That's just my opinion, I could be wrong" ;-)
