Hollow glass microspheres and extendospheres hollow glass microspheres offer formulators flexibility in polymer composites. The addition of hollow glass microspheres to fiberglass reinforced plastics (FRP), epoxy, compounds, and urethane castings can provide weight reduction cost savings and improved impact resistance. Insulating features of hollow glass microspheres also work to the chemists’ advantage in thermal shock and heat transfer areas.
A range of products with densities from 0.14 to 0.80 g/cm3 provides choices to best fit mixing and target weight requirements.
When used in polymer concrete, hollow glass microspheres provide a cost effective alternative without degrading physical properties.
Hollow glass microspheres are used to enhance performance and reduce viscosity in paints and coatings and as lightweight additives in plastic parts. They are chemically inert, non-porous, and have very low oil absorption.
