Silica Products for a Variety of Applications
Featured Product from AGC Chemicals Americas, Inc.
Fine Silica Products for Chromatography, Catalysts and Industrial Applications
- Precisely designed pore structure, spherical shapes and size distribution
- Improved morphology of finished polymers
- Optimizes production
- Narrow particle distribution and no fine particles
SUNSPERA™ silica is used as a catalyst support in the manufacture of polyethylene and polypropylene , playing a more important role than simply as a carrier for a catalyst compound. The properties of the silica gel have a significant effect on both the polymerization process and properties of the finished polymer. The pore structure, spherical shape and particle distribution of SUNPSERA™ for catalyst support are precisely defined. Using SUNSPERA™ gives improved finished polymer resin by increasing the bulk density and also ensures enhanced productivity. SUNSPERA™ is available in average particle diameters from 3µm to 100µm to suit any application. Surface areas are available from 40 – 800 m2/g. The ability to select the sphere size, pore size, and spherical structure of this fine silica product makes it possible to provide long lasting physiochemical-specific characteristics to specific media.
- Ultra-thin scaly silica particles with high transparency
- Primary particle is less than 0.1 μm
- Odorless, harmless
- High chemical stability
- Two forms: powder and slurry dispersed in water
SUNLOVELY™ consists of functional fine particles that are microscopic secondary particles formed by nano-sized ultra-thin silicon dioxide (SiO2) fine particles, overlapping in parallel or tertiary particles formed by three-way cohesion of the secondary particles. Applications for SUNLOVELY range from a filler for polymeric resins and inorganic coatings to heat and chemical resistant paint materials.
