STORAGE CONDITIONS AND

STABILITY

Since precipitated silica is porous and has a high specific surface area, there is the danger that it may absorb vapors or gases, thereby having a negative impact on the properties of the product. For this reason, always keep the product away from sources of contamination.

 

As regards storage temperatures, there are no particular limits from a technical aspect. In general, temperatures up to 50°C have proved to be uncritical. Low temperatures such as severe frost also have no adverse effect on the silica.
