Glass microspheres are balls made of sodium glass, microscopic in size (15-160 µm) the diameter of their walls not more than 2 µm. They have low density and, as a consequence, ultra-light weight, high strength, low thermal conductivity, making them excellent insulating material, and high temperature resistance.
Glass microspheres are balls made of sodium glass, microscopic in size (15-160 µm) the diameter of their walls not more than 2 µm. Hollow inside and solid outside, they look as free-flowing white powder.
Microsphere – original material, which has applications in various fields of science and industry. His continued popularity and relevance is determined by the combination of a number of important properties, allowing it to be used in conditions of high loads and extreme temperatures.
the microspheres have a low density and, as a consequence of ultra-light weight, providing, among other things, excellent buoyancy,
– possess high strength. Their strength depends on the size of hollow spheres and can be adjusted depending on the required workflow parameters
– the material is completely transparent to radio waves low conductivity and small angle of refraction of radio waves
– low thermal conductivity makes them excellent insulating material,
– temperature resistance of this material is so high that it is melting is only possible at temperatures above 1100 degrees
– products from this material is not subject to deformation and are characterized by excellent performance rheology,
the microspheres do not absorb water,
– resistant to organic solvents and aggressive chemical environment like alkali, acid,
– they provide the maximum degree of adhesion (bonding) with different binder compositions,
– characterized by high wear resistance and durability
– are resistant to abrasion and processing, impact resistance, stiffness,
– provide fluidity, lower viscosity in products that are applied.
– mechanical engineering: composite materials (including manufactured bumpers, panels, tires, etc.), repair fillers, primers, components, sound-proof materials
– oil and gas industry: cement materials for oil and gas wells, drilling fluids,
– chemical industry: manufacture of paints, explosives, thermoplastic, defoamers, catalysts, sprayable syntactic foam, crushing the materials
– construction industry: ultralight concretes, dry construction mixtures, thermal insulation coating, sound-proof materials, road markings, sealants, putty, mastics, cladding material, laminates,
– electronics: elements of thermal insulation and sealing.
