Solid particles or powders, when subjected to significant friction during production and transportation or when they agglomerate and adhere to the walls, can significantly reduce production efficiency per unit of time and increase production costs.
Solid particles or powder products cannot be poured out easily when caked, It is undoubtedly a bad consumer experience. When added HIFULL fumed silica, the great flow ability of these particles or powders will be observed.
How fumed silica solve the caking issues?
The flow ability of powders is influenced by the adhesive forces between the powder particles:
On one hand, fumed silica has a small particle size, while particles and powders have a larger particle size and a relatively rough surface, Fumed silica can fill the concave areas of the powder and smooth out the surface, reducing friction between particles to improve their free flow ability.
Besides, fumed silica consist of fine silica agglomerates that coat the particles of the powder.
By doing so, fumed silica separates the individual powder particles, reducing their adhesive forces. and fumed silica covers the powder surface with a layer, thereby promoting the free flow
Thanks to the flow-aid effect of fumed silica, it helps in production efficiency and user experience in various fields, such as food, medicine, fertilizers, and powder coatings
