ÅngströmSphere™ silica spheres are manufactured using our own proprietary technologies which allow the essential properties of amorphous silica to be combined with unique control of duplication, both in form and particle size.

Angstromsphere is a high purity, amorphous silica powder with a very well defined spherical and uniform shape.  Sizes can be produced from 100nm up to 2micron and tailored to the customers specific application.  Over the years our silica spheres have been used in biomedical, photonic, electronic, ornamental and plastic applications as well as many other customer specific proprietary applications.

Angstromsphere is available as a free flowing dry powder or dispersed in water.  Surface modifications are possible.  We sell the silica spheres in 100gram and Kg quantities; please contact us today to discuss your application.
