Porous Ceramics: Application for Polyethylene Microspheres

Polymer microspheres offer an excellent solution to creating precise pore sizes in ceramics at reasonable prices. Polyethylene microspheres offer the added benefit of minimal residue after firing, and the availability in wide size ranges from a few micron up to 1000um (1mm). Highly spherical microspheres have the added benefit of creating strong pores without any…

Microspheres for Coatings Applications (Opaque Polyethylene)

Microspheres are well known in the coatings industry for their use as low-surface-area fillers that offer benefits in viscosity and density control, solids content, application and flow characteristics. Cospheric LLC, a Santa Barbara-based microtechnology company, recently launched a line of opaque polyethylene microspheres that act as a superior opacifying agent and provide maximum hiding power with just one monolayer…
