Measurement Techniques for Electrostatic Charged Microspheres

Co-founders of Cospheric, developed real-time reliable technique for measuring electrostatic charge on microspheres. The technique involves creating a monolayer of microspheres contained in microstructure with each sphere being separated from its neighbors. This technique allows precise measurement of electrostatic charge of a large quantity of microspheres without allowing sphere-sphere interactions.

Microspheres for Coatings Applications (Opaque Polyethylene)

Microspheres are well known in the coatings industry for their use as low-surface-area fillers that offer benefits in viscosity and density control, solids content, application and flow characteristics. Cospheric LLC, a Santa Barbara-based microtechnology company, recently launched a line of opaque polyethylene microspheres that act as a superior opacifying agent and provide maximum hiding power with just one monolayer…

Chitosan microspheres prepared by spray drying

Spray drying has been used in the production of fine powders from emulsions for many years, but it is not a process in which most people associate the production of microspheres. This journal article shows how the authors were able to produce highly spherical microspheres in the 1-10um range by controlling the levels of Chitosan and crosslinking agents…

What is a Microsphere?

Microsphere is a term used for small spherical particles, with diameters in the micrometer range (typically 1?m to 1000?m (1mm)). Microspheres are sometimes referred to as microparticles.
