Silica

Al2Chem

Fumed Silica: Fumed silica’s unique manufacturing process produces a very high purity type of silica with nano size primary particles, a fluffy white powder that is an amorphous and colloidal form of silica. These characteristics impart a wide range of benefits to formulations from thickening and reinforcement to free flow and anti-setting. Industrial applications include;

  • Rheology adjustment during processing
  • Reinforcement of silicone elastomers
  • Thickening of non-polar liquids
  • Excellent insulation properties
  • Anti-setting aid in paints and coatings
  • Gelification of battery acids
  • Rheology control of greases and lubricants

Flatting Agents: Flatting agents are silicas designed to modify the surface characteristics of paints and coatings to reduce gloss. They are highly dispersible and provide good leveling and suspension control, particularly the wax treated grates.

Precipitated Silica: Precipitated silica is produced in a wet chemical process and the resulting amorphous products have a wide range of applications from thickening and reinforcement to free-flow and abrasion. They are highly absorptive, improve mechanical properties and provide unique solutions for your formulating needs. Industrial applications include;
