The increasing requirements for technical polymers have resulted in the development of novel polymer blends where glass with low melting points substitutes glass fibers or spheres. These blends offer many commercial opportunities especially for high-end applications in electronic components. Typical material properties for polymer/glass blends are high stiffness and strength in combination with an excellent frictional behavior. The fact that the different components of these blends have extremely different viscosities results in special demands on the compounding process.
