Fumed silica

It is a versatile additive, is used in a wide range of industries. It is a synthetic amorphous silicon dioxide (SiO2), produced by a flame hydrolysis process.

The resulting fumed silica has a unique structure, consisting of nano-sized particles with a high surface area and good dispersion properties.

Fumed silica is used in a wide range of products and processes as reinforcing fillers, thickeners and flow control additives. It not only functions as a reinforcing, thickening and flow control agent, but is also able to act as a matting agent to create desirable visual effects in areas such as coatings, plastics and optical materials. Its versatility makes it an essential and important additive in many industries.
