The silica dispersion is sodium stabilized and the amorphous silica particles carry a negative surface charge. The silica particles are discrete, have a smooth, spherical shape, and are present in a wide particle size distribution. The physical appearance of the dispersion is a white liquid, slightly more viscous than water. Levasil® PA45 is produced primarily for the European and North American market.
