Glass bubbles in coatings

Functional lightweight material in colors

Micrograph of glass bubbles

3M glass bubbles in the micro range serve as functional Leichtbaufüllstoff and guarantee optimal packing density, for example, as resistance to water in our indoor and facade paints.

Advantages of the hollow glass spheres as a functional lightweight

  • Low weight (functional lightweight filler)
  • The hollow glass spheres support the weight reduction
  • Low resin demand
  • non-porous
  • Excellent resistance to water

Benefit of glass gubbles as a functional lightweight

  • Weight reduction (lightweight)
  • cost savings
  • Improved flowability
  • Stable viscosity
  • Withstand without prejudice to the processing process
  • High compressive strength
  • High on floating rate
  • Reduce shrinkage and warpage
  • Reduction of thermal conductivity
  • Increases insulation
