SYLYSIA

Micronized Silica

Sylysia

SYLYSIA is Fuji Silysia Chemical’s micronized synthetic amorphous silica-gel product line. This material is highly versatile and can be used in many industries, including paints & coatings, plastics, inks and adhesives & sealants. SYLYSIA is an excellent agent for matting and anti-blocking polymer film. With variable pore volume, particle size and density, SYLYSIA is broadly applicable within the paper and ink industries to improve receptivity and other functional coatings.

SylysiaSYLYSIA grades are categorized on the silica-gel pore volume classification. Within each pore volume series, select grades are made with adjustments to particle size, oil absorption and surface area parameters. Treatments can be applied to the surface of the silica-gel to affect dispersion properties, anti-caking, burnish and mar resistance.

400 Series

Lower pore volume than 300 series at 1.25 ml/g. Versatile grades with lower OA values than 300 series but effective matting agents. Applicable in plastics for anti-block and efficient dot gain for ink receptivity. Lower pore volume makes for easier dispersion and lower impact on viscosity.  Please CONTACT Fuji Silysia Chemical directly for MSDS.
