Stabilisers & Clarifiers

Xerogels | Stabiquick Strong

Stabiquick Strong belongs to the family of xerogels.It can be considered a stabilisation agent of optimum efficiency. It is one of the most effective silica gel beer stabilizers. Due to its defined pore volume Stabiquick Strong is selective to haze causing proteins. It is specified for a sharp filtration without affecting filter through-put by an optimized particle size distribution.
