      Imagine the lightest of particles helping reduce the weight of the airplanes we travel in and the cars we drive giving us better overall fuel economy. At 3M, our glass bubbles do that everyday. With a high strength-to-weight ratio, this technology is essential in lightweight materials like plastics and composites. Across industries, our glass bubbles are also used as filler alternatives that can reduce total system costs while providing enhanced product properties.
