PPG Silica for the Footwear Industry 

When it comes to footwear, the industry demands quality and performance. PPG supplies footwear manufacturers precipitated silica products that offer increased abrasion and flex/crack growth resistance along with hot tear resistance in rubber footwear and shoe soles.

Our Hi-Sil™ silicas are non-black reinforcing fillers that allow the formulator to produce either colored or translucent non-marking soles. They provide superior durability and resilience while improving compound stiffness and modulus for all types of rubber-soled footwear.

Benefits:
  • Allows good transparency and color for translucent soling
  • Provides abrasion resistance in colored heels and soles
  • Provides flex/crack growth resistance and hot tear resistance
