Item # B23/500-G, Micro Balloons

List Price List Price {quote} ( Quantity Discount Available )


Glass and quartz bubbles also called micro balloons used to add to mixed epoxy and hardener. Totally non-structural and very light, with a texture and color approaching talcum powder they are used to thicken epoxy. Slurry consistency is still quite runny, similar to honey. Ratio of filler to epoxy is not critical, simply add filler to well mixed epoxy until the desired consistency is achieved. If it gets too thick, add more epoxy. Slurry is used to coat and seal the raw sanded foam before laying on the glass cloth. Also aids in easing the removal of trapped air bubbles by sealing off the foam. Dry micro is achieved by adding additional filler to the slurry. Similar to dry bread dough, has excellent and easy sanding characteristics, but very light in weight. Use by painting on a thin coat of epoxy, then add dry micro mix. Press in place. Dry micro is good for filling low spots, totally non-structural.
