Yes. Cab-O-Sil is a trade name or something, but it's the same stuff as far as I know. It likes to float around in the air, so try not to breathe it in while you are mixing it. Wearing a mask is a good idea. If you are making a mix that includes silica and wood flour, put them in together. I find that the silica particles like to stick to the woodflour, so you get less of it puffing into the air while you are mixing. Anyone else noticed this?
