Global competition, escalating materials costs, higher customer expectations, environmental regulations – these and other factors can put serious pressure on your bottom line. But now, with Zeeospheres technologies, you have a powerful resource to help solve or avoid many of the complex design,production and marketing challenges you face. Derived from nature’s simplest shape, Zeeospheres are engineered to help you reduce costs, enhance properties and improve processability in a wide range of applications.

Higher filler loading

With the lowest surface area to volume ratio of any shape, Zeeospheres increase volume loading capacity. That can mean higher solids/reduced VOCs, reduced shrinkage, and reduced cost through lower resin demand in certain applications.

Lower viscosity and improved flow

Unlike irregularly shaped fillers, Zeeospheres roll easily over one another. Depending on your application, this trait can offer a number of potential benefits. For example, in molded plastics, Zeeospheres can help reduce warpage. Other potential enhancements are noted on the flap at right.

Cost effective per unit volume

Zeeospheres occupy more space than an equal weight of typical mineral filler. This means that, when you consider cost per unit volume instead of cost per pound, Zeeospheres can be a cost-effective choice in many applications – especially when you factor in the enhancements possible with Zeeospheres technology.

Problem solving for many industries

Zeeosphere technology offers solutions to a wide range of manufacturing challenges. For example, it can help reduce the dielectric constant in PCBs. Enhance features in sporting goods. Reduce weight in aircraft in syntactic foam. Optimize sensitization in emulsion explosives. Reduce crackingand shrinkage in spackling compound. Here are just a few more of the many areas where Zeeospheres have demonstrated their usefulness:

  • Building materials: caulks, adhesives, cultured marble, mastics, paints, and roof coatings.
  • Lightweight plastics: injection molded thermo-plastics, SMC, BMC, RIM, RTM, and pultrusion.
  • Aerospace and marine composites, potting compounds and radomes.
  • Other application ideas range from oil field drilling cements to trailer liner panels; film anti-block to flotation devices and autobody putty.
