A range of filler powders and additives for use with laminating and casting resins and gelcoats.
Product Description Milled carbon fibre is a very short strand-length (100µm) fibrous powder manufactured from recycled carbon fibre. Use of milled carbon fibre in a range of applications can significantly improve mechanical properties (tensile strength and modulus), dimensional stability and electrical/electrostatic conductivity.
Product Description Aluminium trihydroxide is an inert, odourless filler powder than can be used to reduce shrinkage and add weight to cast polymer products. It can also improve the fire resistant properties of the casting and reduce exothermic reaction.
Product Description Aerosil® 200 Fumed Silica is an ultra-fine powder used to increase the viscosity (thickness) of resin systems. Adding a small amount of fumed silica to epoxy resin will significantly increase the thixotropic properties of the resin, effectively turning it into a gelcoat and allowing it to cling to sides of steep moulds without running.
Product Description Glass Bubbles, also known as glass microspheres or microballoons are used to bulk-out or thicken resin systems including epoxy, polyurethane and polyester, reducing their density and making them easier to sand. Added to laminates they can provide a smoother finish whilst in castings they improve dimension stability, whilst reducing the...
