Fine Silica Products

Fine Silica Products are resin additives that enhance the surface smoothness and dispersability of the media into which they are added. Their fine silica particles have a lower coefficient of friction than titanium dioxide and other popular fillers. On a molecular level, these particles are perfectly spherical in shape and move more freely to provide a superior tactile feel. Fine silica products provide catalyst support for cosmetics, film and synthetic leather, serve as a matting agent for paints, and act as filler for coated printing papers.

We offer four grades of fine silica products: Solesphere™, Sunlovely™, M.S. GEL™, and Silica Gel. They are available in mean particle diameters from 1.8 µm to 200 µm and with oil absorption capacities from 30 ml/100 g to 400 ml/100 g to suit any application. Surface areas are available from 40-800 M2/g. The ability to select the sphere size, pore size and spherical structure of fine silica products makes it possible to provide long-lasting, physiocochemical-specific characteristics to specific media.
