Chemtek Silica 60
Silica 60 is used as an adsorbent to remove gums and phosphatides and to separate fractions in chromatography.
HOW IT WORKS
Silica 60 works by separating a mixture of chemical substances to its individual components. This creates a window where the pigments are more readily available to the bleaching clays.
Most Common Used In...
Material that has been stored in a hot environment which has likely decarboxylated a major- ity of the acidic compounds.
THE LIPID LAYER
The lipid layer will have most of your contaminate and oxidized compounds. Bleaching clays alone have difficulty removing all the pigmentation and contaminate form the lipid layer.
BOOST BLEACHING EFFICIENCY
By separating the lipids from the pigments, the clays can bleach much more efficiently to reduce the total amount of clay dosage required.
REMOVE HEAVY METALS
Silica 60 is also great for removing other contaminate such as heavy metals.
