SIL-CELL particles are irregular sphere shapes and have a greater tensile strength than the usual spherical bubbles.
SIL-CELL bubbles mechanically key into the binder where other bubbles depend almost totally upon coupling agents for
Since the shape of each SIL-CELL particle resembles a cluster of micro bubbles, if one surface is broken during
handling or processing, there are more bubbles within each particle to provide excellent filler properties.
LOW SPECIFIC GRAVITY
The low effective specific gravity (E.S.G. = 0.18) permits one and one-half pounds of SIL-CELL to displace one gallon of
liquid. SIL-CELL has been found cost effective in the manufacture of adhesives, auto body putty, cultured marble,
coatings, wall patching compounds and stucco.
The aspect ratio of SIL-CELL particles imparts tensile strength; and, at the same time, stresses are transmitted
throughout the "bubbles" and provide a greater stress/impact distribution.
