Silicas

Do you need Silica Gels or precipitated silicas? Learn about our top of the range material

© PQ’s silica products consist of silica gels and precipitated silicas that are used in a wide range of applications. 

Silica gels and precipitated silicas are a form of silicon dioxide, the same compound that occurs in nature as sand. However, sand is a crystalline, non-porous form of silicon dioxide, whereas silica gels and precipitated silicas are amorphous (non-crystalline) and highly porous. By carefully controlling surface area, pore volume, particle size distribution, impurities, coatings, and other key characteristics, PQ Corp. makes a range of products optimized for different end uses.
