About Silica Gel:

The amorphous and porous form of silicon dioxide is known as silica gel or silica. It's made up of an uneven tridimensional structure with nanometer-scale gaps or pores made up of alternating silicon and oxygen atoms. Water or other liquids might fill the spaces, which could also be filled with gas or vacuum. The substance is known as silica xerogel in the latter case.

Chemical Formula:

  • SiO2

Molecular Weight:

  • 60.01 g/mol

Industrial Uses:

  • Detergents
  • Personal care products
  • Plastics
  • Paints & Coating

Production Process:

  • Production of Silica Gel from Sodium Silicate

Sodium silicate and a mineral acid are used to make silica gel. A wet process is used to create monomeric silicic acid, which is then polymerized to produce silica sol. In a gel state, these particles aggregate and form a three-dimensional structure.

Supplier Database:

  • W.R. Grace & Co.
  • Thermo Fischer Scientific
  • Merck KGaA
  • Clariant
  • AGC Chemicals Americas
