Fumed silica, also known as pyrogenic silica because it is produced in a flame, consists of microscopic droplets of amorphous silica fused into branched, chainlike, three-dimensional secondary particles which then agglomerate into tertiary particles.
Precipitated silica is a silica (SiO2) produced by precipitation from a solution containing silicate salts. In 1999, more than 1M tons/y were produced, mainly for use in tires and shoe soles.
