Cab-O-Sil is the name for a range of amorphous fumed silica products made by Cabot Corporation. The molecular structure consists of nanometre droplets of amorphous silica fused into branched chains. They are characterised by high purity, low bulk density and submicron particle size. 

Cabot Cab-O-Sil® M-5 is a medium surface area fumed silica which imparts a significant increase in viscosity to liquid systems, free flow of powders and reinforcement of silicone and organic rubbers.

Cabot Cab-O-Sil® TS-720 is a medium surface area fumed silica which has been surface modified with polydimethylsiloxane. The treatment renders it extremely hydrophobic, with very different properties to untreated silica grades like M5.

Wacker Silicones N20ST is an untreated fumed silica very similar to Cabot Cab-O-Sil M5. Limited stock, economical 10kg bags only.
