There filling performance energy efficient, low low oil, density, added 5% (wt) will be able to make the finished product increased by 25% to 35%, so as not to increase or even reduce the cost per unit volume of the coating. Hollow glass beads particles confined hollow spheres added to the coating formation of many independent microscopic cavity insulation, thus greatly improving the coating on the thermal and sound insulation, play a very good thermal insulation and noise reduction effect. The coating has a more waterproof, anti-fouling, corrosion resistance. When the surface of the hollow glass microspheres are chemically inert chemical resistance, as the film tightly packed particles of glass beads, the formation of low porosity, the coating formed on the surface of the moisture and corrosion caused by the blocking effect of ions protective film, played well protective effect.

Hollow glass beads spherical structure makes the impact force and stress have a good dispersion, added to the paint can well improve the resistance to external impact properties of the film, and the coating can be reduced due to thermal expansion and contraction the stress cracking.

Filling the hollow glass microspheres can effectively reduce other expensive fillers and pigments dosage (compare with titanium dioxide, but its volume costs beads 1/5) effectively enhance the adhesion of the coating. Low oil absorption properties of glass beads so that more resin can participate in film formation, so that the adhesion of the coating increased 3 to 4 times.

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.

Hollow glass microspheres are used in many elastomeric applications—from shoe soles and tires to hoses and wire and cable compounds, from thermoplastic elastomers to liquid silicone rubber sealants and void fillers.

Often the main benefit is weight reduction, especially important for transportation applications. Insulation, stiffening, and cycle time reductions are additional attributes afforded by hollow glass microspheres for transportation and other applications.

In general, they are used for many of the same reasons as discussed in the Thermoplastics chapter, but physical property changes are somewhat different.

Newly developed porous hollow glass microspheres can be filled with absorbents to store gas and other materials. On a macro scale, these strong, reusable microspheres can be made to behave like a liquid. Applications for hydrogen storage, gas transport, gas purification and separation, sensor technologies, global-warming applications, and drug delivery systems are underway. Coatings, plates and fibers with similar properties can also be fabricated.

What looks like a fertilized egg, flows like water, gets stuffed with catalysts and exotic nanostructures and may have the potential of making the current retail gasoline infrastructure compatible with hydrogen-based vehicles of the future — not to mention also contributing to arenas such as nuclear proliferation and global warming?

This unique material, dubbed porous wall hollow glass microspheres, consists of porous hollow glass microballoons that are smaller than the diameter of a human hair. The key characteristic of these 2-100 micron spheres is an interconnected porosity in their thin outer walls that can be produced and varied on a scale of 100 to 3,000 Angstroms.

We have been able to use these open channels to fill the microballons with gas absorbents and other materials. Hydrogen or other reactive gases can then enter the microspheres through the pores, creating a relatively safe, contained, solid-state storage system.

Photographs of these hollow glass microspheres absorbent composites also reveal that the wall porosity generates entirely new nano-structures.

Another feature of the microballoons is that their mechanical properties can be altered so they can be made to flow like a liquid. This suggests that an existing infrastructure that currently transports, stores and distributes liquids such as the existing gasoline distribution and retail network can be used. This property and their relative strength also make the porous wall hollow glass microspheres suitable for reuse and recycling.

If low-density closed-cell foams are used deep in the sea, the high hydrostatic pressures either compress the foam, or fracture the cell faces, so the foam loses its buoyancy. Consequently syntactic foams are used for buoyancy at depth. These contain hollow glass microspheres in a polymer matrix, and have a density less than that of water.

When closed-cell rigid PU foams are subjected to high water pressures, the cell faces fail and the water enters the structure. Mondal and Khakhar showed the pressure vs. loss of buoyancy graph for a foam of density circa 150 kgm−3 was a function of the surfactant used in the foaming process, hence of the thickness (strength) of the cell faces. In a subsequent article they modelled the breakdown process and showed that the threshold pressure for hydraulic collapse occurred when 9% of the cell faces had fractured.

The Hyundai Mobis IP Core Part Development Project finished a 19-month series of tests comparing a PC/ABS material with a new PP material filled with hollow glass microspheres. We were exploring new material formulations that would help reduce overall part weight and costs in the production of instrument panel core parts, research by engineer for the Cockpit Module Design Project.

That using the PP material with hollow glass microspheres achieved a 16.8% reduction in weight, and lowered the finished part cost by a solid 50% (cost of materials in Korea), compared with the same cores made in PC/ABS.

In addition, we experienced improved material flowability and better dimensional stability compared to current talc-filled polypropylene. The change allowed the use of existing tooling, so no capital outlay there, and also reduced part warpage.
