SYLOID® FP Silica Excipients

Compliant with the test requirements for silicon dioxide as described in the latest edition of United States Pharmacopoeia/National Formulary (USP/NF), for silica, dental type as described in the latest edition of the European Pharmacopoeia (EP), and for the hydrated silicon dioxide as described in the latest edition of Japanese Pharmaceutical Excipients. SYLOID® FP silica is a high pore volume silica gel with a large internal surface area. It has a strong affinity for moisture and organic based liquids. SYLOID® FP silica is particularly recommended as a glidant, tabletting-aid and carrier for pharmaceutical and personal care products. A flavorless and odorless synthetic amorphous silica appearing as a white free flowing powder, it is available in a range of grades to meet a variety of formulation requirements.

To select the best grade suited for your appication, contact your Grace Representative.

 

SYLOSIV® Molecular Sieve Powders

A micronized, highly porous, crystalline aluminosilicate (also called molecular sieve) SYLOSIV® Molecular Sieve Powder is a highly effective moisture scavenger and can provide additional functionalities such as self-heating and abrasive properties. Due to its small pore openings, it adsorbs practically only water.

To select the right SYLOSIV® molecular sieve for your needs, consult your local Grace Representative.
