AEROSIL® R 976 is a hydrophobic fumed silica aftertreated with DDS (Dimethyldichlorosilane).

Scope of Application

Applications Silicone rubber and silicone sealants Paints and coatings Negative toner Adhesives Coating polymers Properties Hydrophobic component for thickening and reinforcement of RTV-1 pack silicone sealants Water resistant, for thickening and hydrophobising of liquid systems Rheology control of (complex) liquid systems For use in coatings as anti-settling agent, for pigment stabilization and improvement of corrosion protection Improves hydrophobicity and rheology of offset printing inks Improvement and maintenance of free flow and anti-caking characteristics of powders Due to large surface area improved thickening and thixotropic effect as well as transparency
