Material Safety Data Sheet - Polyethylene Spheres, Beads, Microspheres, and Nanospheres
White polyethylene microspheres are supplied in dry powder form . No solvents are used in the manufacturing process. White microspheres are made with Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) and are safe to use for personal care applications. White PE spheres are extremely opaque offering maximum hiding power even in a small layer of spheres. Opaque white particles act as a superior opacifying agent that offers advantages in paints and coatings, cosmetics and personal care applications.
Polyethylene microspheres are hydrophobic and need to be coated with a surfactant prior to suspending in water. We recommend Tween 80 Bio-compatible Surfactant.
Several densities available:
WPMS - generic white polyethylene microsphere product, does not have a specific density usually between 1.0 and 1.3g/cc
WPMS-1.00 - white polyethylene with density of 1.00g/cc, tolerances +/- 0.03g/cc
WPMS-1.05 - white polyethylene with density of 1.05g/cc, tolerances +/- 0.03g/cc
WPMS-1.10 - white polyethylene with density of 1.10g/cc, tolerances +/- 0.03g/cc
WPMS-1.15 - white polyethylene with density of 1.15g/cc, tolerances +/- 0.05g/cc
WPMS-1.25 - white polyethylene with density of 1.25g/cc, tolerances >+/- 0.05g/cc
WPMS-1.35 - white polyethylene with density of 1.35g/cc, tolerances +/- 0.05g/cc
