Fillers filled with hollow glass microspheres are a type of composite material that consists of a resin or polymer matrix and hollow glass microspheres. The microspheres are small, lightweight, and have a high strength-to-weight ratio. They are typically made from borosilicate glass and have a diameter range of 10 to 150 microns.
The hollow glass microspheres are added to the matrix material to reduce its density while maintaining its strength and stiffness. This results in a lightweight material with high mechanical properties, making it ideal for use in various applications, such as automotive, aerospace, marine, and construction industries.
In addition to their lightweight and high strength-to-weight ratio, fillers filled with hollow glass microspheres also offer other benefits, such as low thermal conductivity, low shrinkage, and excellent insulation properties. They can be used to reduce the weight of components in vehicles and aircraft, improve the energy efficiency of buildings, and enhance the performance of coatings and adhesives.
Fillers filled with hollow glass microspheres are an excellent choice for lightweight and high-performance composite materials that offer a wide range of benefits and applications.
