AEROSIL® fumed silica for lubricating greases and cable gels

Lubricating greases as well as cable gels are basically mixtures of three main components and consist of a base oil or lubricating fluid, some additives and the so called thickener. Especially when thickening is required, our hydrophilic and hydrophobic AEROSIL® fumed silica types have proven to be suitable and highly effective for both applications. But besides the thickening effect, AEROSIL® can also be used as an additive to improve multiple performance areas.
