2021-10-26
Silica gel is a substance whose main component is silicon dioxide. It has a soft texture, good stability, adsorption, and is not easy to burn. In our lives, different kinds of silica gel can be used to make artificial mandibles, auricles, and nasal prostheses, or to make adhesives for refractory materials, or to prevent moisture and rust.
Silica gel can also be called silicic acid gel, and its main component is a substance called silica. Silica gel is soft in texture, has good chemical stability, adsorption, and is not easy to burn. It is an amorphous substance.
Silicone has a very wide range of uses in our lives. For example, in the medical and cosmetic industries, silicone can be used to make artificial jaws, auricles, nasal prostheses, breast prostheses, and so on. The reason why silica gel can be used to make these is because it is non-irritating to the human body, has less rejection and is very stable.

In addition, silica gel can also be divided into blue silica gel, beer silica gel, silica sol, etc., and their uses are very different. Among them, silica sol is often used as a binder for refractory materials, and blue silica gel is commonly used to prevent moisture and rust in various equipment.
