Precipitated Silica Production Cost Reports

Chemicals

Precipitated silica or Precipitated SiO2 is an amorphous form of silica. In appearance, it is a white, powdery material. Precipitated silica is manufactured by the precipitation from a solution with silicate salts.

The three primary classes of amorphous silica are pyrogenic silica, precipitated silica, and silica gel. Among them, precipitated silica has the greatest industrial significance. Just like pyrogenic silica, precipitated silica is essentially not microporous.

The manufacturing of precipitated silica begins with the reaction of an alkaline silicate solution with a mineral acid. Sulfuric acid with sodium silicate solutions is also added simultaneously with agitation to water. Some of the factors like the choice of agitation, duration of precipitation, the addition rate of reactants, temperature and concentration, and pH can vary the properties of the silica.

Precipitated silica finds wide applications as:

  • Filler, softeners, or performance enhancers in rubber and plastics.
  • Cleaning and polishing agent in toothpaste for oral health care.
  • As anti-caking and thickening agents and absorbents to make liquids into powders in food processing and pharmaceutica additives.
  • Food rheology modifier
  • Defoamer
