The role and efficacy of fumed silica

The China Securities New Energy Vehicle index rose as much as 4.1 percent after a strong rally in lithium-ion shares on the Chinese stock market. Brokerages said lithium enterprises would usher in marginal expectations, and currently, it may be the best time to layout power/energy storage lithium batteries.

According to a securities research report, the price of lithium carbonate in the upstream resource end continues to hit a new high, which reflects the shortage of lithium mineral resources, and lithium has become one of the core elements of the development of the lithium electricity industry. In 2022, global demand for lithium carbonate continues to grow strongly, while the supply-side growth is relatively limited. And, because related mining enterprises experienced the last lithium down cycle, they would expand Fumed Silica are expected to rise.

Overview of Fumed Silica

Fumed silica (CAS: 112945-52-5), also known as fumed silica because it is produced by fusing tiny droplets of amorphous silica into branched, chained, Three-dimensional secondary particles and then condensed into tertiary particles. The resulting powder has very low bulk density and high surface area. When used as a thickener or reinforcing filler, its three-dimensional structure leads to increased viscosity, thixotropic behavior. It is an amorphous silica product, the primary particle size is between 7~40nm, the aggregate particle size is about 200~500nm, the specific surface area is 100~400m2/g, the purity is high, and the SiO2 content is not less than 99.8%. Untreated fumed silica aggregates contain a variety of silanol groups.

Application of Fumed Silica

Fumed silica is used in powders as a general purpose thickener and anti-caking agent (free-flowing agent). Like silica gel, it can be used as a desiccant. It is used in cosmetics due to its light diffusing properties. Fumed silica is used as a lightweight abrasive in products such as toothpaste. Other uses include fillers in silicone elastomers and viscosity modifiers in paints, coatings, printing inks, adhesives and unsaturated polyester resins.

Applications in Paints and Coatings

Fumed silica is widely used in paints and coatings as a rheological additive, which can effectively prevent the sedimentation and delamination of pigments and fillers, improve the weather resistance and scratch resistance of coatings, and improve the bonding strength of coatings and substrates. .

Applications in Fertilizers and Feeds

Fumed silica has strong adsorption and hygroscopicity, which can promote the free flow of powders such as fertilizers and feeds, facilitate the transportation and storage of powders, and prevent them from getting wet.

Application in pesticides and medicine

Fumed silica has the characteristics of small particle size, large specific surface area, strong adsorption performance and easy suspension. It can absorb a large number of water molecules in the water, expand into extremely fine particles, and form a stable suspension. Taking advantage of these properties, it can be used as a carrier for pesticide wettable powder, granules, and water-dispersible granules, as a dispersant and thickener for suspending agents; Carriers and excipients to achieve the purpose of prolonging drug efficacy.

Applications in Adhesives and Sealants

The excellent reinforcing, thickening and thixotropic properties of fumed silica can prevent the precipitation of adhesives and sealants during storage and sag during curing, improving their tear strength and bond strength.

Fumed silica price

The price of fumed silica will vary due to factors such as fumed silica production cost, transportation cost, international situation, exchange rate, market supply and demand, etc. Tanki New Materials Co., Ltd. aims to help industries and chemical wholesalers find high-quality, low-cost nanomaterials and chemicals by providing a full range of customized services.

Where is the best place for humans to live in outer space? So far, the moon is more habitable in outer space, and it is likely to be turned into a planet. However, whether humans can live on the moon for a long time, these questions have always been lingering in everyone's minds, always There is no way to get an answer. According to the report, a team from the University of Aeronautics and Astronautics in Beijing, after nearly 370 days of closed life, finally simulated the life experiment on the moon, and finally knew what the final truth was. Live here for a long time.

All aspects of human beings are constantly improving, and the demand for Fumed Silica is also increasing.If you are engaged in the Fumed Silica industry, you just happen to contact us.
