Selection of Filler Additives for Polymers

Physical Properties Enhancement Fillers are often chosen to improve specific physical properties of polymers, such as strength, stiffness, toughness, abrasion resistance, thermal conductivity, and dimensional stability. For example, reinforcing fillers like carbon black or silica are added to improve mechanical properties. Cost-Effectiveness Cost is a significant factor in selecting filler additives. Fillers are often cheaper […]
