Precipitated silica, fumed silica, and colloidal silica are examples of specialty silica used in applications such as food and beverages, plastics, rubber, oral care, and agriculture and feed. High tensile strength and scratch resistance of specialty silica are expected to drive demand for Specialty Silica in the rubber industry. For example, in food and beverages, it acts as a clarification agent for beer, and in plastics, it is used during the polymerization process to prevent polymer layers from sticking to each other during processing. The specialty silica is expected to expand to increased applications in the oral care, rubber, plastics, and food and beverage industries.
