GASIL® and SILCRON® : Silica Gels and Silica Hydrogels that will make a difference in your formulation

© GASIL® and SILCRON® silica gels are highly porous materials with tight particle size control, ideally suited to surface coating applications, including paints, lacquers, plastics, and paper products. 

GASIL® silicas are effective anti-caking/free-flow agents for a variety of materials with inherent poor flow properties, including powder coatings and powder consumer goods (GASIL 23FJ), foods and pharmaceuticals (GASIL 23FP, GASIL IJ624), and moisture scavenger (GASIL GM2F).  These GASIL silica products comply with current FCC and USP standards and are acceptable for use as a food additive in accordance with 21CFR172.480.

SORBSIL® silica hydrogels combine high adsorption capacity with a strong affinity for polar impurities, making them extremely efficient adsorbents for use in the purification of edible oil or biofuel feedstocks. 

SORBOSIL® silicas are used in personal care applications such as toothpastes, in which they provide controlled abrasivity and thickening with optimized optical properties allowing them to be used in all formulations, including clear gels.
