High-performance glass bubble & hollow glass microsphere T32 is a kind of ultra-lightweight inorganic non-metallic material with hollow structure, and it is a versatile and high-performance new lightweight material developed in recent years. It will be the new composite materials at twenty-first century. Its true density is 0.15-0.60g/cm3 with 2-120μm in diameter. It owns features with light weight, large bulky, low thermal conductivity, high compressive strength, smoothly mobility etc.
Why should we choose high-performance glass bubble & hollow glass microspheres?
Improving flow properties.
Hollow glass microsphere is a tiny sphere with high ball-type rate. Its ball-bearing effect can improve its mobility and reduce the viscosity and internal stress of resin mixture. Therefore, during processing, less heat is produced in composite materials so as to prevent inadequate lubrication and partial thermal decomposition. It is more likely to extrude when molding, which can not only reduce defects in products, but also improve the production efficiency by 15% -20%.
More substitute ability for resin.
Hollow glass microspheres occupy less surface area, low oil-absorption rate, and evenly disperse in mixture. Its easy compression and integration permit high filler loadings. It significantly reduces the consumption of resins, increases the amount of filler, and effectively reduces VOC indicators, and costs as well.
Low shrinkage and warpage.
Hollow glass microspheres have the feature of isotropism and high-filling, hence the dimensional stability of the product will be very high and it will reduce the shrinkage and warpage. With an appropriate filling ratio, the toughness of the products, impact-resistance and surface hardness can be significantly improved.
More economical by volume.
The density of high-performance hollow glass microspheres is only a fraction of that of the resin. A small amount of hollow glass microspheres will be able to replace heavier materials. When considering the cost per unit volume, rather than cost per unit weight, high-performance hollow glass microspheres can significantly reduce costs.
Adjusting the density of products .
The density of hollow glass microspheres is usually 0.20 ~ 0.60g/cm3, and the density of mineral filler is generally around 2.7 ~ 4.4 g/cm3 (The data adopted is the true particle density). In order to obtain the equal size, 14 kilograms or more of talc must be used to obtain the same effect of 1 kg of hollow glass microsphere. Hence the desired ideal density can be obtained by adding appropriate proportions of hollow glass microspheres.
