You can find the microballoons at:

    SP System Ltd
    St Cross Business Park
    Newport IOW PO30 5WU.

There's an excellent article written on 'The mechanical behaviour of
adhesives and gap fillers for re-joining panel paintings in the
National Gallery Technical Bulletin, vol.23, by Christina Young,
Paul Ackroyd, Roger Hibberd and Stephen Gritt.
