Selecting Fillers & Extenders

Determine the physical properties of a material you desire to impart to your end product:

  • Extend without absorbing expensive active ingredient
  • Reduce or increase weight
  • Introduce non-slip or texture characteristics, as in flooring and wall coatings
  • Add anti-sag characteristics
  • Increase strength
  • Increase flexibility or rigidity
  • Change sound absorption characteristics

Then, quantify the attributes you need in the Filler or Extender to give you the results you are looking for:

  • Specific Gravity
  • Absorbency
  • Particle Shape
  • Reactive or Inert
  • Sound Deadening
  • Melt Temperature
  • Ignition Temperature
  • Strength
  • Hardness
  • Color
