Sovitec produces solid glass beads Microperl® and High-Tech Beads® for use in thermoplastic and thermoset resins. Solid glass beads appear like a white powder but they are perfect spheres of soda lime glass. They are coated with a coupling agent, which gives a good bonding between glass and resin and enhance the beads dispersion in the matrix. The final mechanical properties will depend of the quality of this bonding between beads and matrix.
Our Microperl® have numerous advantages:
- Improvement of the surface aspect of the final parts
- Improvement of the scratch resistance
- Improvement of the abrasion resistance
- Fluidity increased
- Reduction and isotropy of the post moulding shrinkage
- Faster and easier extrusion and injection
- Better mould filling
Their shape and their chemical composition provide a unique combination of specific properties that are not found in any other filler. We could also find it in some automotive parts, household applications, electrical devices, flooring, coatings (wood, coil, paints, ens), paper, fabrics...
