Colloidal silica is silica particles that are suspended in a liquid. The liquid is denser than water and has been stabilized electrostatically to allow the particles to stay suspended in the solution. The silica particles are also very small and do not have a large density. If the particles are too large, they will settle out of the solution. If the silica particles are too small, they are difficult to stabilize in a solution. Colloidal silica is not only available in bulk deliveries, but also in plastic drums and IBCs.
The global total colloidal silica consumption volume in 2017 is 708 thousand tonnes. The world's major consumer market is Europe and the United States and Japan. China is the world's largest consumer market. At the same time, China is also the world's largest investment casting and coating production market. China's consumer prices are relatively cheap. Europe, the United States and Japan are at the same level.
In the global market, AkzoNobel and Grace are world leaders. AkzoNobel and Grace have six production bases around the world. In 2017, AkzoNobel and Grace accounted for 5.93% and 8.67% of the sales volume share.
Particle size and pH are what differ most between the grades of colloidal silica. In actual production, there are generally four types of colloidal silica. These four types are alkaline colloidal silica, acidic colloidal silica, modified colloidal silica and ordinary colloidal silica. Alkaline colloidal silica and acidic colloidal silica are the most commercially available types. In 2017, alkaline colloidal silica accounted for 67% of the sales market.
