Product Details

3M™ Glass Bubbles S38 are hollow microspheres made of soda-lime borosilicate glass with a true density of 0.38 g/cm³ and an isostatic crush strength of 4000 psi / 280 bar.

The low thermal conductivity of 3M Glass Bubbles S38 makes them ideal additives in insulation for pipelines and production risers.
