Improving your formulations and savings with Omya lightweight fillers

Omya Hamburg
This is a Past Webinar

Lightweighting is an established global trend in a variety of industries and applications. It makes manufacturing products and living in our world easier. Conveniently, formulators can achieve light-weighting by adding specifically engineered fillers to their recipes. The utilization of microspheres is already common in many applications such as spackles, joint fillers, plasters & renders, leveling compounds, lightweight concrete and mortars, boards and panels, elastomeric roof coatings, ceramic tile adhesives, paints and coatings.

Omyasphere® 200 series, lightweight fillers based on closed-cell expanded perlite, offer comprehensive solutions to the Construction Industry. The products support approaches to reduce the weight of formulations and enhance yield leading to tangible savings in terms of spread/ coverage rate while enhancing properties (e.g. sandability, shrinkage, thermal insulation, emittance) of final systems (e.g. Joint Compounds, Plaster & Renders, Elastomeric Roof Coatings).
