Microscopic hollow spheres based on borosilicate glass.
• Yields lightweight and easily sandable filling compounds
• Economical light filler
• For epoxy, polyester, and vinyl ester resins
Micro-Ballons® are borosilicate glass-based microscopic hollow spheres and primarily used to reduce the weight of plastics, rubber, cement, etc., but also they have other advantages in a wide range of applications. Some of the advantages such as an increased amount of filler and improved rheology results from the spherical shape of the product.
- Low density
- Increased amount of filler
- Improved pourability
- Less shrinkage
- Less water absorption

|Effective1||Bulk2 (tamped)||Mean (microns)||Range (microns)||Isostatic (psi)|
1 Effective Density is the particle density as measured by liquid displacement. True Density is the particle density as measured by gas displacement.
2 Bulk Density is the weight as measured in a container (graduated cylinder, to simulate a bin, silo, or carton) and includes the interstitial air.
3 Data represent per cent volume distribution measured using a laser light scatter technique.
