Eka - Spherical Silica Packing Material for APIs

Kromasil is a high performance spherical silica packing material for analytical to industrial scale HPLC, and is available as bulk as well as in slurry-packed columns, from 2.1 mm up to 50 mm ID.

Kromasil has become a premium choice for API purification because of its combination of both mechanical and chemical stability and high performance in preparative HPLC. The varieties of available surface chemistry and particle sizes make it easy to find the right derivatization for normal phase, reversed phase, chiral or SFC (Supercritical Fluid Chromatography) applications.

Kromasil has been ISO9001 certified since the early nineties, and the production is focused on reproducibility for minimal batch-to-batch variation. The production site is certified ISO14000 and committed to sustainable production methods.

The Kromasil product line is made by Separation Products, a department within Eka Chemicals, a global company with 2 900 employees in 30 countries. Eka Chemicals is a business unit within AkzoNobel, one of the world's largest chemical groups, with about 60 000 employees in more than 80 countries.
