Micronized glass powder, also known as finely ground glass or glass micro-particles, is produced by grinding glass into very small particles with diameters typically ranging from a few micrometres to a few hundred micrometres.

Glass powders (100 mesh =150 microns to 600 mesh = 20 microns) are widely used in C.A.S.E (coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomer-polymers) applications as a crystalline silica free recycled functional filler.  Other applications include anti-block, ceramics, glazes, and frit.

Filler in Polymer Composites

Micronized glass powder is used as a filler or reinforcing agent in polymer composites to improve mechanical properties such as stiffness, strength, and impact resistance. It can enhance the dimensional stability and durability of polymer materials, making them suitable for applications in automotive parts, construction materials, and consumer goods.

Functional Fillers in Coatings

Micronized glass powder is incorporated into coatings and paints as a functional filler to improve properties such as scratch resistance, adhesion, and barrier performance. It can enhance the durability and appearance of coatings used in architectural finishes, automotive coatings, and industrial protective coatings.

Thermal Insulation Materials

Micronized glass powder is used as an additive in thermal insulation materials to enhance their thermal performance. It can be incorporated into insulating foams, coatings, and panels to improve thermal conductivity and reduce heat transfer, making them suitable for applications in building insulation, refrigeration, and HVAC systems.

Electronics and Optics

Micronized glass powder is utilized in electronic and optical components for its dielectric properties, thermal stability, and optical clarity. It is used as a filler in epoxy resins for encapsulating electronic devices, as well as in optical coatings and adhesives for lenses, displays, and photonic devices.

Functional Additives in Adhesives and Sealants

Micronized glass powder is added to adhesives and sealants as a functional additive to improve bond strength, cohesion, and resistance to environmental factors such as moisture and temperature fluctuations. It is used in structural adhesives, sealants for construction joints, and bonding agents for industrial applications.
