About Precipitated Silica:

Precipitated silica, also known as Precipitated SiO2, is a crystalline form of silica. It seems to be a white, powdered substance. It is made by precipitating a solution containing silicate salts. Pyogenic silica, precipitated silica, and silica gel are the three main types of amorphous silica. Precipitated silica is the most important in terms of industry. Precipitated silica, like pyrogenic silica, is essentially microporous.

Chemical Formula:

  • SiO2

Molecular Weight:

  • 60.01 g/mol

Industrial Uses:

  • Filler, softeners, or performance enhancers in rubber and plastics.
  • Cleaning and polishing agent in toothpaste for oral health care.
  • Food rheology modifier
  • Defoamer

Production Processes:

  • Production of Precipitated Silica by Precipitation

The sodium silicate solution is reacted with sulphuric acid in this process. The prepared solution is then precipitated, filtered, washed, and dried to yield precipitated silica.
