Glass bubble filled PDMS foam composites with exceptional lightweight

2024-03-15 16:28:38 127

Glass bubble filled PDMS (Polydimethylsiloxane) foam composites are materials that combine the lightweight properties of glass bubbles with the flexibility and resilience of PDMS foam. Glass bubbles are hollow glass microspheres that are extremely lightweight and can significantly reduce the density of a material when added to it.

When glass bubbles are incorporated into a PDMS foam matrix, they create a composite material that is exceptionally lightweight while maintaining good mechanical properties. The PDMS foam provides flexibility and cushioning, making the composite suitable for applications where weight savings and impact resistance are important, such as in aerospace, automotive, and marine industries.

These composites can be tailored to achieve specific density, mechanical, and thermal properties by adjusting the ratio of glass bubbles to PDMS foam. They are also relatively easy to process and can be molded into various shapes and forms, making them versatile for a wide range of applications.
