Polyethylene Microspheres – Microthene

Polyethylene Microspheres used in the composite industry include the following characteristics:

  • Ideal for all applications where you require a smooth surface,
  • Increase the mechanical strength of the finished compound, improving the aesthetical properties of the surface,
  • They avoid the shrinkage phenomenon,
  • They simplify the mixing and dispersion process of organic additives,
  • They increase abrasion resistance of the final product.

The microspheres of PE, Microthene, are mainly used in SMC /BMC molding and in the pultrusion process.

The addition level goes up to 6% of the total resin weight.
