Interfacial has developed a unique technology to coat the outside of hollow glass microspheres with polymeric materials. These unique polymer additives have a low cost, lightweight filler template with a functional polymeric coating. When melt processed with a polymeric material these additives offer the following advantages and benefits:
- A simple strategy to reduce the weight of an extruded or injection molded article. The sacrificial microspheres have very high survival rates (>95%)
- Markedly improved conductivity when conductive sacrificial microspheres are used (as much as 20X)
- Ideal materials for use with conventional melt processing techniques that are easy to handle, blend and feed using conventional equipment.
