Cab-o-SilŽ

Cab-o-sil is a fumed lightweight silica thickener used to reduce the flow of epoxies on vertical surfaces, as well as filling pinholes with its smooth texture.

When mixed into liquid resin, Cabosil functions as a resin thickener (flow control agent) and sometimes as an anti-settling, anti-caking agent. Its applications are many, including thickening paint, dyes in the screen printing industry, epoxy, polyester, urethane, water, hand soap and shampoo. It is a versatile thickening agent that has even been used to "thicken" fresh water and sea water.

Cabosil is an extremely fine particle size silica (silicon-dioxide / SiO2) aerogel. It is pure white and free-flowing. Each volume contains about 94% dead air space, with a density of only 2.3 lb/cu ft. On the other hand, water (density 62.4 lb / cu ft) weighs about 27 times more.

This thixotropic agent holds the liquid resin in place until the curing agent takes over and hardens it.
