Material Safety Data Sheet - Polyethylene Spheres, Beads, Microspheres, and Nanospheres
Clear polyethylene beads are not as spherical as our polyethylene microspheres and offer a more economical solution for those applications where sphericity of particles is not critical. Translucent polymer particles are screened to be greater than 90% in specified particle size range. Greater than 75% of particles are spherical. Polymer beads are supplied in dry powder form. Polyethylene beads can be used to produce porous ceramics by burning out the polymer.
Polyethylene particles are hydrophobic and need to be coated with a surfactant prior to suspending in water or aqueous solution. We recommend Tween 80 Bio-compatible Surfactant.
Particles in Size Range: > 90%
Spherical Particles: >75%
Auto-Ignition Temperature: 330C-410C
