Several of our clients have found Cabosil M5 to be highly effective
with its extremely fine particle size. Cabosil M5 is most commonly
used to matte epoxy resin fills and is available in 100 gms pots.
Technical sheets are available from our plant in Cowley, Oxford,
England and through our plant in Springfield, Virginoa, America.
