Blending process is the most sought method for creating high performance materials namely composite materials. Such composite materials exhibit improved properties (ex mechanical, thermal, chemical properties etc.) which can be attributed to the stability of the morphology of the base material by addition of additives. This work discusses the blending process and performance of glass based additives (Glass Fiber and Glass Bubble) in PPCP. The trails were done by blending i.e. Short Glass fiber (SGF) with PPCP and Glass bubble (GB) with PPCP in different percentages. After due testing of these blends, the performance was compared and chosen one best formulation from both GF and GB materials. These both additives were again mixed with PPCP and made as a single formulation with slight fine tuning. By this, there observed transition in material properties from a moderate resilient nature to brittle nature giving raise to enhancement of mechanical properties and a control on density of material.
