3M™ Glass Bubbles iM16K

3M Product Number iM16K3M ID B40064613
  • Density reduction leading to high weight reduction
  • Better strength-to-density ratio providing a consistent weight reduction and high crush strength assuring the survival of Glass Bubbles during the harsh processing conditions.
  • Improved dimensional stability which translates to less warpage of finished parts in the plastic injection molding process
  • Smaller particle size particularly important for class A finishing automotive parts
