Specialty Compounds Containing 3M Scotchlite Glass Bubbles
- Reduced shrinkage and warpage
- More "control" than foam
- Lower specific gravity
Specialty compounds containing 3M Scotchlite Glass Bubbles are a unique way to reduce the specific gravity of thermoplastics without the property losses associated with other methods, such as foaming.
Microspheres reduce density as high as 30% quickly yield cost savings through the use of fewer pounds of material. Processable on standard molding equipment, they are ideal for applications in industries such as aerospace, automotive, cosmetics, and explosives handling.
