Details

3M™ Glass Bubbles S32HS are hollow glass microspheres engineered from water-resistant, chemically-stable soda-lime borosilicate glass. These performance-enhancing polymer additives are used to create high-strength, low-density composite parts and syntactic foams for use in the automotive, marine, heavy truck, aerospace, oil and gas industries.

S32HS Glass Bubbles have an excellent strength-to density ratio and can offer greater survival rates than other lightweight additives under demanding processing conditions. These Glass Bubbles can help reduce weight and thermal expansion and can be used in a variety of applications such as automotive, construction, marine, and paints and coatings. The S series Glass Bubbles generally offer smaller particle sizes than the K series. Particularly in automotive applications they can help with attainment of class A surface properties in SMC composites.

  • Additive used for density reduction in sheet and bulk molded composite vehicle parts
  • Helps reduce weight of composite parts by up to 40 percent with a density below 1.0g/cc
  • Used as a raw material in syntactic foam for pipes and risers in deepwater oil and gas recovery operations
  • Low thermal conductivity ideal for demanding deepwater conditions
  • Allows greater density reduction at lower filler loadings to maintain composite strength of automotive parts
  • Enables automotive parts with Class A paintable finishes
  • Can significantly help improve fuel economy and extend electric vehicle battery range
