The start of a better finish.

Functional paint fillers for architectural paints help keep painted surfaces looking like new, longer.


3M™ Ceramic Microspheres for Paints and Coatings

Painted surfaces that are easy to wash and even scrub. Flat architectural paints with a smooth finish and an even sheen. In all these ways and more, 3M™ Ceramic Microspheres enhance durability and performance in a wide variety of architectural and industrial paints and coatings.

3M ceramic microspheres are high-strength solid engineered particles. In addition to helping manufacturers reduce costs and improve processability, 3M ceramic coatings contribute functional, customer-pleasing properties to paint coating formulations:

  • Increase solids and reduce resin demand while maintaining desired properties
  • Allow improved viscosity control
  • May allow formulations with lower Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)
  • Scrub, burnish and sag resistance for longevity and improved paint performance
  • Enhanced packing and higher filler loading to help reduce costs
  • UV transparent down to 250 nm and radiation curable

To round off the list, 3M ceramic microspheres help additive manufacturing companies differentiate their products with the added consumer appeal of ceramic technology.

  • High filler loading

    By allowing higher solids and lower resin demand, 3M ceramic microspheres may enable lower VOC formulations.

  • Lower viscosity
    Lower viscosity

    When 3M ceramic microspheres are added to a resin system, their low binder demand allows a lower viscosity compared to conventional fillers. These paint additives increase the processing window in industrial paints and coatings

  • Intrinsic hardness

    Unlike soft, irregularly shaped particles that break or wear away, 3M ceramic microspheres are paint fillers that resist scrubbing and burnishing – helping keep paint coatings smooth and uniform.
