SUNSPERA’s precisely designed pore structure, spherical shapes and size distribution contribute to superior finished polymer resins and optimum productivity.
SUNSPERA joins AGC’s family of fine silica products — Solesphere™, Sunlovely™, M.S. GEL™ and Silica Gel — which provide catalyst support for cosmetics, film and synthetic leather, serve as a matting agent for paints and act as filler for coated printing papers.
“With the addition of SUNSPERA, AGC offers five grades of fine silica products. The ability for customers to select the sphere size, pore size and spherical structure allows us to provide custom solutions to fulfill any application need,” said Roderick Reber, business manager of fine silica products at AGC Chemicals Americas.
AGC’s fine silica products are available in mean particle diameters from 1.8 μm to 200 μm and with oil absorption capacities from 30 ml/100 g to 400 ml/100 g to suit any application.
Surface areas are available from 40 to 800 M2/g.
