Levasil FO9950
Very large particle size colloidal silica
Levasil FO9950 is a very large particle size (100nm), low-sodium colloidal silica that is used in ceramic fiber insulation, frictionizing applications, and abrasives. Levasil FO9950 is a colloidal dispersion in water of amorphous silica spheres at an economical 50% concentration. 

Levasil FO9950 offers these advantages

Stronger Bonding and Hardness - Larger particle size yields higher green strengths (i.e., modulus of rupture) and harder refractory fiber shapes.
Better High Temperature Properties - Larger particle size and lower sodium content gives lower shrinkage at temperatures up to 2300oF.
Forms 3D gels - Can be gelled with Wesol D30 colloidal alumina and refractory fibers to form thick fibrous coatings. 
Rigidizes Better - Larger particles soak in farther and giver stronger, harder rigidized products.
Flocs with Cationic Starch - Negative surface charge flocs cationic starch and refractory fibers together to form a three-dimensional floc for good product strength.
