P2011SL are the smallest glass microspheres made from recycled soda lime glass and manufactured to meet a tight distribution curve.
P2015SL are soda lime glass microspheres that improve clarity of color, creating a multi-dimensional effect when they surround pigments or metallic additives.
P2050SL has the broadest particle size distribution providing the benefits of color enhancement and consistent color from any viewing angle.
P2075SL has a larger average diameter which promotes the use as a flatting agent in industrial applications, such as paints or coatings, where a matte appearance is desired.
P2011SL: Median diameter (D50) between 3 and 6 micron, with a top size of 20 micron.
P2015SL: Median diameter (D50) between 8 and 12 micron, with a top size of 36 micron.
P2020SL: Median diameter (D50) between 20 and 30 micron, with a top size of 75 micron.
P2050SL: Median diameter (D50) between 35 and 45 micron.
P2075SL: Median diameter (D50) between 65 and 75 micron.
P2125SL: Median diameter (D50) between 100 and 150 micron.

P2011SL product line is primarily used in applications where the film build is so thin, such as automotive paint, that only this small a
sphere can fit without protrusion. The P2011SL is also used in the cosmetics industry to diffuse reflected light in products
such as powders and foundations, and to reduce the “glazing” that hardens or cakes powders after exposure to face oil.
P2015SL spheres can be incorporated into solvent or water-based paints and coatings, plastics, inks and certain cosmetic formulations.
P2050SL makes it effective as an anti-mottling agent and flow enabling ingredient in heavier or thicker film coatings or paints such as latex architectural paint.
P2075SL spheres' larger average diameter promotes the use of the product as a flatting agent in industrial applications, such as paints or coatings, where a matte appearance is desired.
