We specialize in manufacturing of a large selection of polyethylene microspheres in particle size from 1um to 1.7mm. High quality solid polyethylene microspheres are now commercially available not only in a wide variety of colors, but also with opaque, paramagnetic, fluorescent, and phosphorescent properties. Some polyethylene microspheres have a strong triboelectric (electrostatic) charge. Black microspheres can be manufactured with paramagnetic or static-dissipative properties.

Polyethylene microspheres in any color can be made neutrally buoyant in water with specific gravity of 1.00g/cc. The density of spherical particles can be adjusted to create microspheres neutrally buoyant in other fluids. A large selection of PE microparticles with custom specific gravity from 0.96g/cc to 1.5g/cc allows researchers to use them as tracers and seeding particles to match the density of surrounding fluid for PIV and fluid flow visualization experiments, as well as in density marker beads applications.

Most of the grades of polyethylene microspheres meet the specification of greater than 90% in specified particle size range and greater than 90% spherical particles.

PE Polymer beads are generally hydrophobic and have high protein binding abilities. However, they often require the use of a surfactant to ensure ease of handling and suspension in aqueous solutions. 

Size and Form: Solid polymer spheres in dry powder form. Refer to sizes for USA standard sieves (ASTM E11) for ranges of particle sizes.

Sphericity: Polyethylene spheres are screened to prevent any dust, debris, and non-spherical microparticles. High quality identical polymer spheres with excellent uniformity.

Opacity:Clear microspheres are translucent pure polyethylene. Opaque microspheres are truly opaque (will not transmit light even in a 50um monolayer).

Custom color and density polyethylene microspheres can be manufactured by request.
