Hydrophobic Silica is a form of silicon dioxide (commonly known as silica) that has hydrophobic groups chemically bonded to the surface.
- Hydrophobic silica is used to solve technical problems in a number of products including, but not limited to, paints, inks, adhesives, plastics, coatings, toners, defoamers, silicone rubber, sealants, cosmetics, food additives, polyester resins, cable gels, and greases. It’s often manufactured as both single and multiphase composites in order to enhance properties such as dispersion, stability behavior, resistance to water, and functionality.
- Highly effective.
