Synthetic silica gels such as SYLOBLOC® silica are highly efficient "anti-blocking" agents to prevent layers of polymer or plastic films from sticking together. They are available as physical blends, integrated or melt-in grades, and pelletized silica blends. SYLOBLOC® silicas can also be used as specialty plastic additives for plate out protection, pigment dispersion, mold release, and carriers for liquids.
UNIPOL® PP Process Technology is defined by simplicity. An all gas-phase technology based on a fluidized bed reactor system, UNIPOL® PP is designed to have fewer moving parts and less equipment than any competing technology.
The core facility has the smallest footprint in the industry, about 60 meters by 65 meters, and includes operations for purification, reaction, purging, vent recovery, additive addition, and pelleting.
Rubber & Tire Additives
Grace PERKASIL® precipitated silicas are widely used in a variety of synthetic rubber applications including tires, technical rubber, footwear, and silicone rubber. They act as reinforcing fillers to achieve the desired properties for the finished product.
