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.
