Potters Industries LLC, is a leading producer of engineered glass materials serving the oil and gas Industry, polymer additives, highway safety, metal finishing, and conductive particle markets. Through its research and technology advancements, Potters has developed product lines that include hollow glass microspheres used as weight-reducing fillers in fabricated plastics, automotive body putties, as extenders in adhesives and paints/coating formulations and are used as sensitizers in industrial explosives.
The Cary Company is an authorized distributor of Potters Industries SPHERIGLASS® Solid Glass Microspheres, and Q-CEL® and SPHERICEL® Hollow Glass Microspheres product lines. For samples, technical data sheets (TDS), safety data sheets (SDS) or general questions, please contact a specialty chemical representative by email at email@example.com or by phone at (630) 629-6600.
Solid Glass Spheres are used by formulators in automotive, aerospace, chemical, electronic and other industries to enhance performance and reduce reject rates in production, and to improve thermoplastic and thermoset properties. These products disperse evenly, pack closely and wet-out easily in resin compounds. They are available uncoated, or coated with coupling agents suited to a wide variety of resin chemistries.
Hollow Glass Microspheres are performance alternatives to conventional fillers and additives such as silicas, calcium carbonates, talc, clay, etc. A variety of particle sizes, densities and strengths meet specific functional and end-use application requirements such as reducing density or cost, or improving stiffness or workability.
Hollow Glass Microspheres are performance alternatives to conventional fillers and additives such as silicas, calcium carbonates, talc, clay, etc. They are compatible with polyesters, epoxies, phenolic resins, urethanes, plastisols, thermoplastics, latex, concrete and other building materials, as well as emulsion- and water-gel explosives. They are available uncoated, or coated with specially-formulated coupling agents (CP01, CP03) to maximize interfacial bonding between the microspheres and the resin matrix.
