Applied Material Solutions is now offering colloidal silica to its North American customers. Our proprietary manufacturing process produces a uniform distribution profile to ensure a low percentage of off-size particles and contaminants.

Our goal is to provide our partner companies with colloidal silica to match their specified requirements, while also offering controlled particle size distribution for consistent application performance.

For additional information, or to challenge us to meet your specific colloidal needs, please contact us today.

Applied Material Solutions offers a custom formulated “W” (winterized) version of all AMSol™ products listed above that can be used after thawing. The suspension is recoverable with simple mixing.*

*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.
