SOLAD™ Non Porous Silica

SOLAD™ is a proprietary product range of highly monodisperse, spherical, durable and reproducible non-porous silica particles manufactured by Glantreo. Our proprietary process is both stringent and flexible and thereby allows control over the particle size and particle size distribution is a reproducible manner. This control allows Glantreo to extend the SOLAD™ particle size range from 15nm to 70um.


Leveraging the world-class SOLAD™ particle, we have further enhanced the usability of the materials by adding chemistries and functionalities that make the materials ‘more ready to use’ These functionalities include various carbon chains (C1 to C18), Li Ion, Carboxyl, Streptavidin, Amine and Thiol. If you have a specific requirement then please ask as we have done broad experience.


Our particles have be utilised in a wide range of applications area. For example: Photonics, Nanomedicine, Imaging and diagnostics, Bio-nano toxicology, Chemical Mechanical Polishing (CMP), Bases/templates to grow other inorganic oxide monodisperse particles, Nano chromatography, Battery (Ionic Conductivity & Reduction of electrolyte stratification processes) and Calibration aids.
