Glass Thermal Properties and Their Role in Product Design

hollow glass microspheres] This resource discusses use of hollow glass microspheres in glass-polymer composite fabrication. this will help me in finding a glass-polymer combination that works as a composite, but hollow glass microspheres might not be the best option for this project. Air ingisde the glass may lead to bubbles in the filament and low-quality printing.

this source offers links to other databases and suppliers of microspheres who might have some that will work for this project. Major strengths of hollow glass spheres in composites are mentioned as well.

cites Journal of Thermoplastic Composite Materials, which will likely be helpful.

Glass suppliers[edit]

  • Cospheric (inclused microspheres)
  • Mo-Sci corporation (includes microspheres)
  • Kopp Glass
  • Rayotek Scientific, Inc.
