Advantage of Using Aluminum Silicate in Paints Production:

  • Widely used in the manufacturing of paint, as a less expensive alternative to Titanium dioxide
  • Part of white pigment like Titanium-dioxide (10% /more) can be replaced without loss of opacity.
  • Give faster surface & through-drying in products which also stand up better to abrasive treatment
  • Excellent substrates for high gloss finishes as they ensure good leveling out.


Physiochemical Properties

  • SiO2: 85% to 99.5%
  • pH: 7
  • Bulk Density: 0.07 to 0.20 gms/cc
  • Particle Size: 2 to 5 Microns
  • BET Surface Area: 140 – 180

  • Moisture content at 105ºC for 1 hr-% max: 5%

Advantages of using Precipated Silica in Rubber Products:

  •  Improved process ability at equal mixing energy
  •  Increased tensile strength, tear and flex fatigue
  •  Improved hysteresis properties superior abrasion (scratch) resistance
