Solid & Hollow Microspheres are used in various industries to modify the viscosity of materials.
In many industries, where viscous liquids are used in cartridges or dispensing tubes there are problems with the flow through the nozzle of the device. Also, once the material has passed this threshold there can be problems with regards to its shape and tensile strength.
Solid or Hollow Microspheres, when mixed with these materials improves their properties giving a much more controlled and uniform flow. Other physical benefits that may be obtained include smoother, harder and stronger surfaces. Due to the low oil absoption and the isotropic behaviour resulting from the spherical shape, microspheres offers an exceptional dimentional stability and minimise recess, shrinkage and excessive craking during drying. It also helps controlling the thickness of the bonding line.
