Nano-porous silica is an advanced silica product developed by using a patented novel innovation.
It has advanced properties desired by silica customers for traditional varieties such as precipitated
silica and silica gel.
Precipitated silica is used in various applications such as for reinforcing synthetic rubber, surface
coatings on inkjet paper for color printers (ink adsorbent), film anti-blocking, and as a matting
agent for synthetic leather. Precipitated silica's largest application is in tires. In contrast to carbon
black, which is known as a tire filler-reinforcing agent, precipitated silica is white in color and
thus called White Carbon. In recent years, tests have shown that tires filled with silica offer
improved fuel efficiency by reducing the rolling resistance of tires. Demand has been increasing
for the tires compounded with precipitated silica. These tires not only serve filler-reinforcing
roles, but also contribute to the reduction of environmental loads as required these days.
