Spherical simplicity to help solve complex problems
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 Zeeosphere 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.
Zeeospheres â„¢ Ceramic Microspheres fine particles with very high strength.
Higher filler loading
With the lowest surface area tovolume 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
Lightweight 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.
The choice is yours
Zeeospheres provide a wide choice of unique enhancements. Select from a range of microsphere characteristics (see chart on inside page) to help you meet specific processing and end use requirements.
Zeeospheres Ceramic Microspheres N Series are unique dark gray-colored, fine particle size, high-strength microspheres. They are opaque to visible light, but transparent to UV light. These products are typically used to reduce VOC levels, increase filler loadings, improve hardness, and add burnish, scrub and abrasion resistance to a variety of coating formulations. Due to their low resin demand, high hardness and inert chemistry, these products have found utility in high solids, water reducible radiation – curbale and high durability coatings, powder coatings, and a wide range of premium performance coatings. The N Series is typically used when color is not important in the application.
