Other applications


Tata Chemicals’ specialty grade silica can be used for several applications such as battery separators, leather chemicals, guar gums, waste water management, fire retardant, defoamers application, paper chemicals, textile auxiliaries, etc.

Tata Chemicals’ specialty grade silica is suitable for battery separator applications because of controlled surface porosity. It is used for pore creation in PE separators. Our silica makes battery separator hydrophilic and improves electrolyte wettability with electrical resistance.

Tata Chemical’s specialty grade silica can be used as scrub surfaces by means of mechanical abrasion. Its large surface area helps carry active ingredients and fragrances in to the system and improves release of actives during washing. It is used as a good carrier for ceramics colours; helps improve rheological properties of tile adhesives.
