TIL the colored beads in Silica Gel packets are a humidity indicator. If the beads are blue or orange the silica gel can still adsorb more moisture. If the beads are pink or green, then the silica gel is spent and can adsorb no more moisture. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sil…
not so much a drawing task as it was a colouring task, but i had fun tracing and colouring in this silica. (i didn't draw the background lol)
LPT: Throw a few of those silica gel packets in your toolbox. It'll help keep your tools from rusting.
Scientists replaced 40 percent of cement with rice husk cinder, limestone crushing waste, and silica sand, giving concrete a rubber-like quality, six to nine times more crack-resistant than regular concrete. It self-seals, replaces cement with plentiful waste products, and should be cheaper to use. newatlas.com/materials/ru…

My luck has been honestly insane today. I pulled the event Silica twice and just pulled her exclusive weapon. I hope this luck keeps up.
Silica Gel: n95 masks, although not recommended for reuse, as supplies run increasingly short, reuse will be the only available option. When storing, put in a cardboard box or paper bag with silica gel packets to absorb moisture and keep them dry.
**Disclaimer: I am not a medical health professional nor do I have any background in science.
I use them to store the masks in *separate containers or bags to keep them dry when not in use. I also tape one to the inside of my n95 respirator to prolong the efficacy of the respirator by letting it absorb some moisture from exhalation.
I do not have any background in science or engineering, this is just a step I have taken out of resourcefulness to prevent hoarding for myself so that medical staff and those in need have more integral supplies to work with.
Please use this advice at your own discretion.
Ceramic coating vs spray sealant (silica)
What are the differences between the two, besides the obvious longevity. For instance, I'm interested in mainly UV protection and hydrophobicity. It seems ceramic coats offer that, but I'm not sure if sealants do too--well, CarPro Reload claims UV protection. But, I'm very suspicious of this due to mass advertising and buzzwords in auto detailing sphere.
Also, out of curiosity, would you polish before applying a sealant?

WTB Silica Packets (ontario)
I can't really get Silica Packets where I am, especially now. Just seeing if someone has a bunch extra they wouldn't mind shipping lettermail. I'm in Ontario, CAN, so ideally, another Canadian would save some time and postage. Willing to pay as well, just need enough for a few small jars.

despite what seems like an especially emphatic warning, silica gel isn't poisonous. they say "do not eat" because they're often packaged with food. at worst it poses a choking hazard.

Hey guys! My shrooms are a little bendy after 1 year and silica packs a little bit wet. Redehydrate them or just put new silica packs? They smell like usual, no foul smell.
Can I simply use a food dehydrator to dry my shrooms, instead of all the hassle with a net, fan, silica gel, tubs etc..?
First time grower, I think it would be simpler to just buy one dehydrator for 40 bucks than to buy all these individual stuff that I don't have any of (not even a fan haha)

So for the past two days I’ve been drinking essentially silica packet tea
So I bought a water bottle from amazon online. It is a water bottle that you can put fruit in the top on a shelf thing to infuse the water with some fruit taste. For some reason I never opened it completely up and just filled it up and started drinking. Well after literally two days of drinking multiple cups of water, I saw chunks of something floating around. I open it and to my shock there are floating papers and a silica packet. I didn’t even taste anything and I was drinking this for days. Will I be okay?? I feel fine but holy shit That made me anxious
Silica gel(food grade) was stuck in the jacket.
First time writing here.
I’m currently using 5G copper pot still.
I stuck paper towel wrapped silica gel in the pipe of the jacket after I cleaned last time.
Should’ve checked but busy setting up drain and pump stuff.
After that pot was getting warmer and didn’t check the inside of the jacket and just sealed it.
So it was stuck in there whole time but, it didn’t fall or anything. I got it out whole with the paper towel.
Would it be toxic? I looked it up and all I could fine the internet was it is safe because it made with silicon and it is nontoxic.
Hey friends! My magic is now cracker dry, and I want to store it with some silica packs in a jar, can the packs touch the shrooms or is this a no-go?
Silica tlc of aqueous neem extract
Hi, I’m currently a pharmacy third year student and I need some advice. We are currently determining the ratio of solvent to achieve rf value 0.4-0.5 of aqueous azadiractha indica. Solvents given to us are chloroform, ethylacetate and ethanol. With the ratio 2:5:4 the sample moved upto the solvent front. I’m trying to reduce the rf value by increasing the polarity but can’t. Can someone please help me out?

Need tips for getting Silica Pearls
Pretextual edit: I am on The Island map
I'm living on the upper/north-eastern beaches, near Far's Peak, and Trilobites seem to be diminishing as a good pearl resource. Are there any good/efficient ways to get pearls, assuming I can't effectively travel deep into the ocean, and don't live particularly close to the snowy side of the map? Would it just be easier for me to tough out a long excursion to the other side of the map for pearls?
Edit: If you couldn't already tell, I'm relatively new to Ark and don't really know much about the more advanced things, so excuse my noob question..
Drybox Silica Gel

Using fan to predry then silica beads to dry shrooms- how long can I wait to dry them?
Sorry my post comes off as a little all over the place aha I’m stressing right now. (I’m a newb, this is my first time growing)
So I just picked my shrooms and I have them spread out drying with a fan pointed at them. I was planing on using silica beads to dry them out that I ordered off amazon and were suppose to be arriving today but there was a mix up with our package and now they’re saying it won’t come for another 2–3 days.
My questions are-
How long does it usually take to pre dry them with a fan?
How long after pre-drying them can I wait to put them in with the silica beads? Should I go buy more or if they arrive in 3 days can I just put it in then?
Any information would really help. Thank you in advance!
Dry storage preference? I recently purchased two ounces dried and won't be going through them all anytime soon. I have them stored in a light proof and airtight container (with silica gel packs) but am wondering if I should store the container in the fridge or freezer instead of a shelf/cabinet?

Silica Gal and the Desiccants
My silica gel for dry aging doesnt worn at all!!
I'm dry aging my meat in fridge and put 2g x 50 = 100g silica gel in it. However, humidity doesnt change at all around 91%.
With silica gel, 91%. with nothing 91%, trying another brand still 91%
While many videos found silica gel useful to adjust humidity level around 80% why mine dont work at all??

27M One time exposure to silica dust, now have persistent cough
I was helping my friend dispose of tile he was jack hammering out of his floor last week and idiotically didn't wear a mask. I was in and out of the room during cutting and tossed buckets of it into a dumpster, which sent up big dust clouds. I've been reading about silicosis, which usually emerges after years. How likely is it no permanent damage was done? I'm a little paranoid because I don't want to get coronavirus while my lungs are irritated from tile dust.

Silica bilayer supported on Ru(0001): Following the crystalline to vitreous transformation in real time with spectro‐microscopy
The crystalline to vitreous phase transformation of a SiO 2 bilayer supported on Ru(0001) was studied by means of time‐dependent LEED, local XPS and DFT calculations. The silica bilayer system constitutes a model system that has interesting parallels to 3D silica glass and can be used to understand the mechanism of the disorder transition. An Arrhenius analysis of the time constant for the phase transformation in the 2D hexagonal network of crystalline silica at variable temperature gives apparent activation energy values ( Common.EditSubmissionSteps.Transform.EquationText ) of (4.2 ± 0.6) and (4.1 ± 0.2) eV for the transformation in UHV and O 2 atmosphere, respectively. The differences observed in the Common.EditSubmissionSteps.Transform.EquationText values lie within the experimental accuracy of the determination. DFT simulations show that the formation of a Stone‐Wales type of defect follows a complex mechanism, where the two layers show decoupled behavior in terms of chemical bond
