Monodisperse particles are often used in the field of self arrangement of microspheres, filter membrane screening, fluid dynamics research, photonic crystal film formation, instrument calibration, particle size standard, chromatographic as well as medical and biochemical industries.
Spacer grade monodisperse microbeads are specifically designed with a sharp maximum diameter cut-off to control bond-line thickness (gap thickness) of an adhesive layer. For this application, the customer will mix these microspheres into the desired adhesive. Just a small amount of spacer beads can create a controlled gap as well as precisely define and maintain specified bond-line thickness. Spacer grade monodisperse microsphere was specifically developed for those customers seeking extra tight bond line control. Glass and silica spacers offer the extra benefit of high crush strength, resistance to most solvents and high temperature performance.
Bond-line spacers are used in many industries including gas plasma displays, automotive mirrors, electronic displays, flip chip technology, filters, microscopy, and electronic equipment.
