News on Barton Blakeley establishing its-first of-kind carbon capture facility in Hertfordshire


Silica Powder that helps the planet

The XICOZA product line offers environmentally conscious substitutes for users of Silica, Alumina and Titania materials, providing the direct ability to reduce their carbon footprint without compromising performance.

XICOZA powders are made directly from carbon dioxide using Barton Blakeley’s HYPER XI process. For every amount of XICOZA Silica added, the purchaser can quantify how much carbon has been embodied in the final product.

XICOZA Silica powders offer high performance with competitive pricing to everyday precipitated or fumed silica.

Silica Nanopowder

XICOzA replaces common industrial materials like Silica, Alumina and Titania; All materials which normally possess high energy and CO2 costs to manufacture.

XICOzA is made directly from CO2, permanently trapping emissions. This allows silica users like rubbers, silicone’s, glass, touchscreens, adhesives, inks, plastics, 3D printing manufacturers and more to directly reduce emissions.

Special Characteristics

Barton Blakeley customises their material for each industry, providing characteristics such as super hydrophobicity, oleo and hydrophilicity, thermal & UV resistance and improved dispersion

High Specification Material

Super-hydrophobic Silicon Oxide Nanopowder (Treated with Carbon Dioxide)

Purity: 99.99 % +

Average Particle Size:  13-16 nm +

Molecular weight:  60.08 g mol-1

Specific Surface Area (SSA): 

40 m2 g-1 or greater.

Solubility:     Insoluble in Water

Captured Carbon

Thanks to Barton Blakeley’s HYPER XI Technology, low cost materials used for manufacturing everyday items now trap carbon generated from industry. 1 ton of XICOzA equals over 600 Kg of CO2 directly converted.
