    Details

    3M™ Glass Bubbles S38HS are hollow glass spheres with a typical density of 0.38 g/cc and an isostatic crush strength of 5,500 psi. These glass bubbles are designed for buoyancy and insulation in ultra-deep water applications in oil and gas drilling. The bubbles produce strong, stable voids and low thermal conductivity, helping coatings achieve the necessary compressive strength.

    These Glass Bubbles are designed for pipeline insulation in ultra-deep water applications and low density sheet moulding compounds (SMC).
