Spherix for Plastics
We have engineered Spherix aluminosilicate ceramic (ASC) microspheres to deliver a unique combination of benefits for plastics, including processing, flow modification, and improved dispersion of fillers. The product’s spherical shape enables performance-enhanced properties which present unique advantages for applications seeking higher recycle integration, faster processing and yield, and stronger properties.
A 100% post-industrial material, Spherix contributes the maximum benefit possible toward LEED project certification points. Its controlled particle size range and spherical shape means that Spherix requires less resin or binder to wet out the surface, dropping the demand for process aids such as lubricants. These attributes also allow for low shrinkage and lower overall production cost. Spherix delivers value in processing, performance, and sustainability.
Spherix ASC microspheres offer distinct competitive advantages across multiple industries.
Increased efficiency of functional Additives
Higher mixing, extrusion, and molding rates
Enhanced surface smoothness
