Silica – a manifold of solutions for plastics

AEROSIL® fumed silica is invented to improve the manufacturing, quality and performance of thermoplastics, polymer compounds, composites and Thermpolastic Elastomers (TPE). Both, hydrophilic and hydrophobic types of AEROSIL® fumed silica are used as additive for:
  • Antiblocking agent in polymer films
  • Matting of plastics
  • IR absorbtion in greenhouse film
  • Reinforcement
  • Rheology control
  • Thixotropic effect
  • Free flow
  • Anti cacking
  • Carrier
  • Processing aid
  • Anti plate-out
  • Controlled migration
  • Dielectric properties
  • Thermal conductivity
  • Surface modification
  • Nucleation of foam
  • Flame retardant synergist
Besides our fumed silica we are offering various precipitated silica-tpyes "SIPERNAT®" which can also be used to reach a.m. effects. Whether a fumed or a precipitated silica should be used depends on the individual parameters like: polymer, targeted effect and performance level, type of machinery and equipment, dosing level, etc. Further information you will find in our flyer and on our SIPERNAT® homepage.
