What is Wacker HDK?

HDK® pyrogenic silica improves the performance, stability and handling of your systems and formulations at all phases of production and processing. HDK® is ideal for adjusting the flow properties of liquids and giving powders optimum free-flow properties.

What is silica amorphous?

Silica, Amorphous (Fume) is a fine, white powder. It is formed during the manufacture of elemental Silicon and Silicon alloys. This substance is NOT the product known as “fumed Silica” and has no use since it is produced only as a by-product.

How is fumed silica made?

Fumed silica is synthesized by the pyrolysis method in which silicon tetrachloride reacts with oxygen in a flame, and the SiO2 seed grows in size or aggregates [8].

What happens if you breathe fumed silica?

HAZARD SUMMARY * Silica, Amorphous (Fume) can affect you when breathed in. * Silica, Amorphous (Fume) can irritate the eyes on contact. Repeated exposure can damage the eyes. * High exposure to Silica, Amorphous (Fume) can cause a flu-like illness with headache, fever, chills, aches, chest tightness and cough.

Is there silica in ketchup?

Heinz Ketchup contains cabosil (fumed silica) , its an inert thickening agent.

Can you use cabosil with polyester resin?

Yes you can add cabosil to a polyester resin or even a vinylester or epoxy resin to increase viscosity.
