Yes, they can by making cars lightweight and more fuel-efficient. Developed by 3M engineers, these high-strength, low-density hollow glass microspheres can lighten a car by up to 15% while retaining its structural properties. In an industry where every bit of weight loss makes a difference, it’s taking automotive engineering to new heights.
Can sharp edges bring out a smooth finish?
Just ask award-winning scientist Mark Schwabel, whose study of how glass breaks inspired an abrasive breakthrough. He and his team achieved this by working with Sol-gel abrasive technology, a method for producing solid materials from small particles, to create Cubitron II, that cuts faster and smoother. The result was an innovation that changed the shape of the collision-repair.
