PLASTICS

Spherix aluminosilicate ceramic (ASC) microspheres have been engineered to deliver a unique combination of benefits for plastics, including processing, flow modification, and improved dispersion of fillers.

  • Increased efficiency of functional fillers

  • Better mixing, extrusion and molding rates

  • Enhanced surface smoothness, reduced shrinkage, warp and mold fouling

  • Greater product uniformity and batch-batch consistency
