Engineering Plastics

Sovitec’s Microperl® beads are now an essential element in various plastic materials and widely used as a technical additive filler in different applications such as automotive and domestic appliances, E&E products and other industries to improve surface aspect properties (aesthetic, scratch and abrasion resistance, dimensional stability) and processing (faster extrusion and injection cycle time, less reject rates).

Microperl®  solid glass beads are used alone or combined with other additives in thermoplastic and thermoset resins. Solid glass beads appear like a white powder but are in reality perfect spheres of soda lime glass. The glass beads are coated with a coupling agent, providing solid bonding between glass and resin and enhancing dispersion of the beads in the matrix.
