The material use of silica

Silica is the raw material for manufacturing glass, quartz glass, water glass, optical fiber, essential parts of the electronic industry, optical instruments, handicrafts, and refractory materials. It is an important material for scientific research. When silicon dioxide is crystallized, it becomes crystal; Agate is formed by dehydration of silica gel; The silica gel containing water becomes opal after solidification; When the silicon dioxide grain is less than a few microns, it forms chalcedony, chert, and secondary quartzite. Mineral resources with very stable physical and chemical properties, with crystals belonging to the oxide minerals of the tripartite crystal system, namely low-temperature quartz α– Quartz is the most widely distributed mineral species in the quartz group. Generalized quartz also includes high-temperature quartz β– Quartz). Quartz block, also called silica, is mainly the raw material for producing quartz sand (also called silica sand), quartz refractory, and raw material for firing ferrosilicon. In addition, silica can also be used as a lubricant and is an excellent flow promoter, mainly as a lubricant, anti-stick agent, and flow aid. Especially suitable for the granulation of oils and extracts, the particles produced have good flowability and compressibility. It can also be used as a flow aid in direct tablet pressing. As a disintegrating agent, it can significantly improve particle fluidity, increase bulk density, increase the hardness of the prepared tablets, shorten the disintegration time, and increase the drug dissolution rate. In the manufacturing of granules, they can be used as internal desiccants to enhance the stability of drugs. It can also be used as a filter aid, clarifier, defoamer, suspension aid, and thickener for liquid formulations. Silicon dioxide is an inorganic compound, which is usually non-toxic but may cause harm to the human body. Generally speaking, silicon dioxide is relatively stable in chemical properties. It is a complex, insoluble solid with high dispersion and good chemical stability. It is widely used in daily life. If added excessively, it may cause particular harm to the human body, chronic inflammation, and lung health. Generally, there are many precautions to be taken during the use of silica, and it needs to be added within the specified range to prevent harm to the human body to a certain extent. Excessive addition is not allowed. If you are looking for high quality, high purity and cost-effective silicon dioxide, or if you require the latest price of silicon dioxide, please feel free to email contact mis-asia.
