AEROSIL® fumed silica for non-soap greases

AEROSIL® fumed silica is used as a thickener in non-soap greases. Besides the thickening effect, AEROSIL® fumed silica can also have an influence on many other properties.

Often specialty grease, thickened by inorganic thickeners (AEROSIL® fumed silica). High thixotropic effect is typically required. Non-Soap greases are used in high-temperature applications as well as for multi-purpose greases.
Benefits of AEROSIL® fumed silica in non-soap greases:
  • Rheological properties (e.g. viscosity, yield point, structure stability, thick recovery)
  • Modify friction (improve energy efficiency – at higher shear – not boundary lubrication)
  • Mechanical stability (e.g. stability at high shear)
  • Oil separation characteristic / oil keeping ability
  • Higher temperature range / Raises dropping point performance
  • Environmentally safe / low-emission
  • Prevent settling / the formation of sludge (dispersants)
  • Color → White/Translucent
  • High chemical purity
  • Oxidation stability (Restrain oxidation; reduce rusting)
  • Improvement of water and acid resistance
