Hollow Ceramic Microspheres (Cenospheres)
- Low Bulk Density
- High Melting Point
- High Strength
- Uniform Sphericity
In cementitious systems, sealants, and putties Microspheres can be used to modify rheology, reduce weight and shrinkage and improve thermal insulation. In composites and other polymer applications, Microspheres reduce resin demand, and improve impact resistance and strength.
Specialised Microsphere grades are available for rigorous application conditions in Refractories and Surface Coatings.
Applications for Microspheres are numerous. Some of these include Plastics and gel-coats and used in Polyurethane, Latex Emulsions, PVC, Epoxy Resins & Unsaturated Polyester Resins. In the cementitious products sector they are used in dry-mix adhesives, mortars, jointing compounds, and oil-well cements.
