Custom compounding with Spherix aluminosilicate microspheres

by Jeff Heath, Spherix

Spherix manufactures post-industrial recycled aluminosilicate ceramic microspheres with a mean particle size of 3-4 μm. The solid, incompressible spheres mechanically facilitate ingredient dispersion, processing speed and improved surface quality within a wide variety of polymer systems during both mastication and downstream processing. They promote flow and can reduce the need for conventional lubricants depending on the compound. Spherix is a registered trademark of Spherix.
