SYLOID® 72 is a synthetic, amorphous silica appearing as a white free flowing powder. It meets the test requirements for silicon dioxide as described in the latest editions of the Food Chemicals Codex (FCC), the latest edition of Japan’s Specifications and Standards for Food Additives (D326) and European Directive 96/77/EC (monograph E 551).
SYLOID® 72 is a moderate pore volume silica gel with large internal surface area. It has a strong affinity for moisture and organic based liquids across a broad range of conditions. SYLOID® 72 can adsorb up to 1.1 ml of a liquid per gram. SYLOID® 72 is particularly recommended as a glidant and tableting aid in nutraceuticals, as a carrier for liquids and to provide free-flow and anticaking properties to hygroscopic powders. SYLOID® 72 exhibits good moisture pickup over a broader range of moisture levels than practically any other silica.
