Low-Density Performance Additive

  • Resin Extension in polymers translates to cost savings
  • Increased solids, reduced VOC’s
  • Emulsion Explosives Sensitizer
  • Improved mold/flow in thermoset applications
  • Improved thermal cycling properties in coatings/composite from insulation factor
  • Higher solid loading without viscosity increase
  • Acrylic Patching/filling compounds
  • Markets/Applications include construction, automotive, composites, coatings, oil well cements
  • Fewer defects: excellent mold flow, uniform dispersion
  • Reduced compound density and viscosity
  • Increased acoustic and thermal insulation
  • Reduced cost and better handling in flexible compounds
  • More uniform, closed-cell structure in syntactic compounds
  • Cost reduction from sandpaper and labor savings for putties


Weight-Reducing, High-Strength Additive

  • Reduce weight in engineered plastics (grades available in 0.25 g/cc to 1.1 g/cc)
  • Increase durability (grades available up to 10,000 psi crush strength)
  • Increase abrasion and burnish resistance
  • Reduce VOC content without compromising viscosity and flow
  • Improve film integrity without changing finish
  • Provides insulation and floatation effect
  • Easy to disperse into formulations


A Multi-Functional Beauty-Enhancing Additive for Cosmetics

  • Provides a pleasant, soft powdery feel to a variety of cosmetic formulas
  • Smoothness and flow are enhanced by the ball bearing effect of tiny spheres
  • Gives excellent hiding properties with a unique soft focus due to light scattering
  • Aids in distribution of other particles, enhancing their performance
  • Non-porous/non-absorbent
  • Colorless
  • Good compressibility
  • Particle size – mean diameter 9-13µm
