As the world deals with potential supply shortages, oil prices are soaring again, with more dramatic spikes and sudden drops expected.
For consumers, that means more expensive gas for longer - prices at the pump remain above $4 a gallon. For the economy, that means more inflation. In addition to the pressure on consumers, any business that relies on oil -- from airlines and truck drivers to chemical companies and plastics producers -- will face higher costs.
Mr Pickering estimates that 2m to 3m barrels a day of Russian oil shipped by water are frozen out of the market with no direct buyers. Due to the soaring oil price, the price of the Fumed Silica in the chemical industry will also be greatly affected. He said China and India are continuing to buy Russian crude. "I'm sure there will be others willing to take on more over time," he said. Mr Pickering said he did not expect oil to return to $130 a barrel, but added that it could happen. Francisco Branch, head of commodities and derivatives at Bank of America, said the US market was ready for cyclical price spikes and price swings in the Fumed Silica.
Overview of Fumed Silica
Fumed silica (CAS: 112945-52-5), also known as fumed silica because it is produced by fusing tiny droplets of amorphous silica into branched, chained, Three-dimensional secondary particles and then condensed into tertiary particles. The resulting powder has very low bulk density and high surface area. When used as a thickener or reinforcing filler, its three-dimensional structure leads to increased viscosity, thixotropic behavior. It is an amorphous silica product, the primary particle size is between 7~40nm, the aggregate particle size is about 200~500nm, the specific surface area is 100~400m2/g, the purity is high, and the SiO2 content is not less than 99.8%. Untreated fumed silica aggregates contain a variety of silanol groups.
Application of Fumed Silica
Fumed silica is used in powders as a general purpose thickener and anti-caking agent (free-flowing agent). Like silica gel, it can be used as a desiccant. It is used in cosmetics due to its light diffusing properties. Fumed silica is used as a lightweight abrasive in products such as toothpaste. Other uses include fillers in silicone elastomers and viscosity modifiers in paints, coatings, printing inks, adhesives and unsaturated polyester resins.
Applications in Paints and Coatings
Fumed silica is widely used in paints and coatings as a rheological additive, which can effectively prevent the sedimentation and delamination of pigments and fillers, improve the weather resistance and scratch resistance of coatings, and improve the bonding strength of coatings and substrates. .
Applications in Fertilizers and Feeds
Fumed silica has strong adsorption and hygroscopicity, which can promote the free flow of powders such as fertilizers and feeds, facilitate the transportation and storage of powders, and prevent them from getting wet.
Application in pesticides and medicine
Fumed silica has the characteristics of small particle size, large specific surface area, strong adsorption performance and easy suspension. It can absorb a large number of water molecules in the water, expand into extremely fine particles, and form a stable suspension. Taking advantage of these properties, it can be used as a carrier for pesticide wettable powder, granules, and water-dispersible granules, as a dispersant and thickener for suspending agents; Carriers and excipients to achieve the purpose of prolonging drug efficacy.
Applications in Adhesives and Sealants
The excellent reinforcing, thickening and thixotropic properties of fumed silica can prevent the precipitation of adhesives and sealants during storage and sag during curing, improving their tear strength and bond strength.

Nano silicon dioxide SiO2 powder
A preparation developed in China; the comfort and the multifunctional properties of nanomaterials make "dead skin" capable of sensing again. Electronic skin is artificial skin that mimics the function of human skin. Recently, the world-renowned journal Advanced Science reported a simple and highly programmable electronic skin on a leather substrate developed by a Chinese team, which combines the natural complex structure of leather, the comfort of wearing, and the multi-functional properties of nanomaterials. , so that the "dead skin" has the ability to sense again.
In the future, Fumed Silica will be used in various high-tech fields, and the market demand for Fumed Silica will also be great. Please contact us for more information on Fumed Silica.
