Synthetic, hydrophilic, amorphous silica, produced via flame hydrolysis. Standard product for industrial applications.
HDK® N20 is applied as a thickening and thixotropic agent in many organic systems, e.g. in unsaturated polyesters, coatings, printing inks, adhesives, cosmetics and others.
HDK® N20 is used as a reinforcing filler in elastomers, mainly silicone-elastomers.
HDK® N20 acts as a free flow additive in the production of technical powders.
HDK® N20 is not suitable for pharmaceuticals, food and feed.
A good dispersion of HDK® N20 is a must to assure optimum performance.
More detailed information about the application and processing ofHDK® N20 is available in our HDK-brochures and on the WACKER web site.
HDK® N20 is offered in following packaging:
- pallet with paper bags: 10 kg bags
- Big bags: 150 kg (big bags on pallets)
- Silotruck: depending on size of truck, approx. 3.5 to 5 tons
The 'Best use before end' date of each batch is shown on the shipping label and the certificate of analysis.
HDK® N20 should be stored in the original packaging in dry storage areas. Storage beyond the date specified on the label does not necessarily mean that the product is no longer usable. In this case however, the properties required for the intended use must be checked for quality assurance reasons. Due to the high surface area HDK® adsorbs volatiles and should be protected from humidity and volatiles. If single bags are taken away from an original pallet, the remaining bags of this pallet must again be protected against humidity and volatiles.
