Polyklear Fiberglass + Resin is also in the business of distributing fillers and additives which are used to improve the overall performance of the composite matrix.
CHALCO ALUMINA TRIHYDRATE
A non-toxic, non-corrosive, flame-retardant and smoke suppressant additive. It is most commonly used fire retardant filler. It releases water molecules when exposed to high temperature. Mixing ratio varies from 20% to 150% depending on the application and applicator's working requirement.
Packaging: 1kg, 25kg
Polyklear Microspheres are very small, hollow glass spheres primarily used to reduce density to make an item lightweight. It adds impact strength, promotes easier sanding and produces a product that can be nailed or screwed with less chance of cracking. It is added to resin at 50-150 phr, depending on the desired consistency. Sanding of microsphere-filled resin products will make items porous, thus are not recommended to be done for applications requiring constant water contact.
Packaging: 1kg, 27.5kg
REOLOSIL FUMED SILICA
A fine, white powder added to resin to impart thixotropic property that is, resins mixed with fumed silica can be applied on vertical substrates with minimal run-off. Recommended addition is 0.3 to 0.8% of resin weight. Added at larger amounts, it thickens resin but care must be observed with formulations as adding too much produces an output that is very difficult to sand.
Packaging: 100g, 500g, 1kg, 10kg
