Fumed Silica Manufacturing Process and Cost Structure
The surface of fumed silica consists of the three-dimensional network of siloxane groups (-Si-O-Si-) and silanol groups (-Si-OH) located on the surface of silica.
Fumed or pyrogenic silica was first patented at Degussa by chemist Harry Kloepfer in 1942 (ref.
The expanded plant integrates operations between Bluestar and Cabot to produce high-performance fumed silica and silicone monomer.
