Silica Gel, also known as Arten Silica Gel, Precipitated Silica, amorphous Silica, Silica Gel Rubin, Silica Gel Orange, Flash Silica, and Spherical Silica, has the chemical formula SiO2. It is a porous, granular, lightweight form of Silicon Dioxide and is typically produced from sodium silicate. It appears as a transparent to gray translucent powder, beads, or granules with no odor and is practically insoluble in Water at ambient conditions. However, it is soluble in molten Alkali Oxides and a mixture of Nitric-Hydrofluoric acids. Lab Alley’s Silica Gel, Indicating Blend has been chemically treated to change color from one to another as it adsorbs moisture and eventually saturates. This trait makes bulk silica gel ideal for removing moisture from air and gases. It can be reused after heating it to 121 °C for approximately 8 hours. In the United States of America (USA), Lab Alley is selling its high-quality Silica Gel, Indicating Blend online at laballey.com. Due to its high purity, this Lab Alley product is highly recommended for labs and commercial applications.
