Grace zeolite molecular sieves are crystalline, highly porous materials, which belong to the class of alumina silicates. They are purely synthetic materials and are characterized by the following properties:
- Selective adsorption due to the uniform pore size of the zeolite structure
- High adsorption capacity for polar substances at low concentrations
These crystals have a three-dimensional structure, with pores of precisely defined diameters. They are designed to allow smaller molecules such as water, CO2, and H2S to be adsorbed while excluding larger molecules, hence the name "molecular sieve". Grace offers a wide range of pore sizes to "sieve" molecules of various sizes and shapes including gases and liquids.

When Grace became the first company to commercially produce silica gel in 1921, no one could have imagined the powerful role silica would play in many technological advances. Across our continuing history of innovation, Grace has led the way in researching and refining silica's properties and capabilities. Today, Grace produces a wide spectrum of silica products including synthetic amorphous silica gel, colloidal silica, and precipitated silica.
With silica manufacturing facilities, R&D centers, and sales offices worldwide, we are well equipped to meet the challenges of today's global marketplace while delivering local service and support. Our large scale manufacturing capabilities, strict quality control, and secure supply chain round out a partnership you can trust.
For decades, Grace silicas have been used in a wide range of industrial and consumer applications. Our synthetic silicas improve product performance and enhance manufacturing processes within an extensive range of functionalities, product types, and application areas including:
