Hollow glass microspheres are light-weight, chemically stable materials, frequently used as functional additives to reduce weight (density) and improve buoyancy of materials.
Conductive silver coating on hollow glass microsheres offers benefits in catalysts, laser fusion targets, and electrically conducting bond line spacers.
Conductive nickel-plated hollow microspheres are often used as a lightweight, lower cost, electrically conductive additive and an alternative option to silver.
Zinc oxide (ZnO) coating offers numerous advantages as a semiconductor, as well as high refractive index, high thermal conductivity, binding, antibacterial and UV-protection properties.
Glass microspheres coated with TiO2 in anatase form exhibit photocatalytic activity under ultraviolet (UV) irradiation. Excellent photocatalytic activity against a range of relevant organic pollutants and effective in reducing gaseous pollutants.
Hollow glass microspheres coated with rutile titanium dioxide (TiO2) and are designed to be high quality seeding material with excellent light scattering properties for high temperature applications in the experimental fluid dynamics and particle image velocimetry (PIV) industry.
