Wood Filling & Bonding
- Brown, hollow phenolic resin spheres ideal for wood applications
- Easy to profile and sand for filling, filleting and bonding
- Refer to the AMPRO datasheet for recommended mixes
Microballoons are used to make glues and paste fillers, or increase the volume and reduce density of any resin system.
Microballoons are hollow phenolic resin spheres which have a distinctive reddish/brown colouration.
This makes them particularly useful for cosmetic fillet joints and fillers in wood construction, as well as structural adhesives for less demanding applications on softer timbers such as cedar.
Although not as waterproof as glass bubbles, microballoons are often preferred for their excellent sanding characteristics.
Microballoons are not normally used with polyester or vinylester resins because they can be subject to styrene attack which may cause the spheres to collapse.
When storing microballoons, it is particularly important to exclude air as they readily absorb atmospheric moisture which will affect the performance of the filled mix.
