Quartzene is the brand name of a novel platform of synthetic silica powder materials designed to boost the functional performance of your product.
Quartzene is in most applications used as a functional additive. As manufacturer of, for instance, paint, plaster, building panels or sealants, you can improve the sustainable performance of your products by adding Quartzene. The main purpose here is to improve insulation, reduce material consumption, reduce weight, replace plastic and increase safety – often Quartzene contributes to a combination of these in one and the same solution.
Quartzene is offered as hydrophilic or hydrophobic grades, and the selection of suitable grade depends on the composition and manufacturing process of your product and the conditions prevailing during the stage of use.
All materials are open-porous and hence allows for exchange with surrounding conditions. The hydrophilic grades are chemically inert and can withstand very high operating temperatures without losing their performance. The hydrophobic treatment is resistant to 275°C, but the structure and the other properties will remain far beyond that.
Quartzene Z1H1 and Z2H1TP grades are ideal for insulation solutions where space and weight considerations are critical, such as retrofit building insulation and automotive insulation, particularly for the strongly growing electrical vehicle segment.
Quartzene Z2H1 is the hydrophobic countertype of Z2. It has a particle size range between 1-100 µm. Due to the increased particle size, Z2H1 will have less viscosity impact in dispersions than Z1H1 and can thus be added in higher amounts.
