Microballoons are ideal when you’re looking to make your part lighter, have it float in water, or you want to use significantly less resin. Microballoons add volume and buoyancy to your cast part.
- General formula for adding microballoons to Alumilite resins:
- 0-20% by volume – it will sink
- 25-30% by volume – it will be neutrally buoyant/suspended
- 50-100% by volume – it will float
- Disclaimer for lure-making: The design and inner through wires, size and weight of hooks, eyes, etc. may affect the buoyancy of the lure.

The micro balloons worked great and were as described. Great help when trying to find the right float level for your baits.
