Electrostatically Treated & Ionically Stable
Suspended Silica Solution
JLK is proud to offer a line of colloidal silica to its North American customers.
Our customized manufacturing process produces a controlled particle size distribution which is difficult to find in the market.
Our most popular grades are listed below, however we regularly partner with our customers to match their specific requirement. Please contact us for more details.

A custom formulated “W” (winterized) version of all colloidal silica products listed above. This proprietary blend depresses the freeze point but will not prevent freezing or instability due to extremely low temperatures. Winterized products should still be protected from freezing as a precaution.
