The composite industry is highly competitive and wrestles with a number of variables in production. Examples are long exotherms and surface roll-out times. In post - production part fabrication, machinability issues can occur with cracking from brittle parts along with constant blade wear. Polymeric microspheres address these issues along with reducing part weight and costs.
Most people are aware that polymeric microspheres can dramatically reduce the cost and weight of their formulas/products. In addition to cost and weight improvements (Image 1), there are several other benefits you can obtain when using polymeric microspheres.
