Retroreflective Half-Shell Aluminum Coated Solid Glass Microspheres
Retroreflective Half-Shell Aluminum Coated Solid Glass Microspheres

The spheres are offered in dry powder form with the following coating options:

  • Uncoated - no surface treatment
  • Silane Coating (S2) - for improved dispersion in aqueous systems (~76 degree contact angle)
  • Fluorochemical Coating (F35) - NEW FORMULA - for improved hydrophobicity to bring the spheres to the surface in solvent based systems
  • Fluorochemical Coating (F1) - RETIRED FORMULA - for improved hydrophobicity to bring the spheres to the surface in solvent based systems
