Oil & Gas
Oil and gas exploration, drilling and production operations rely on Hollow Glass Micro spheres to reduce weight, density, friction and drag in harsh environments. These glass micro spheres reduce the weight and density of slurries, lubricants and drilling fluids, because their low-energy surface minimizes friction and drag, improving flow. Chemically-inert, non-porous and non-absorbent, they are impervious to water, solvents, organic chemicals, acids and alkalis.
Hollow Glass micro spheres are strong, with a high crush-resistance (up to 10,000 psi) so they can survive the tough conditions and high processing pressures of the oil and gas industry.
