Spherix® is an aluminosilicate ceramic (ASC) product with unique advantages for increasingly competitive industries.  With its signature spherical shape that promotes its performance-enhancing properties, Spherix® is a 100% sustainable post-industrial mineral. Since it’s made from recycled materials, Spherix® contributes the maximum benefit possible toward LEED project certification points for construction projects. Its controlled particle range and spherical shape mean that Spherix® takes less resin or binder to wet out a surface versus other fillers, resulting in low resin/binder demand. This dynamic allows high solids formulations, low shrinkage, and lower cost, delivering excellent return on investment.

 

Benefits for Plastics:

 
  • Reduced mixing time and energy consumption

  • Higher mixing, extrusion and molding rates

  • Enhanced surface smoothness, reduced shrinkage, warp and mold fouling

  • Greater product uniformity and batch-to-batch consistency

  • Excellent erosion and weather resistance

  • Excellent for use in fire-resistant applications
