Syntactic foam manufacturing method involving 'post-mould processing' was studied for potential building material applications. It was found starch particles tend to adhere to hollow microspheres during mixing, forming agglomerations. A transition in formation, after phase separation, of mixture volumes in water was also found to take place at a calculated relative density value of 1 for an agglomeration consisting of multiple starch particles and one microsphere. Starchmicrosphere inter-distance was discussed and considered to be an important parameter affecting starch content in an agglomeration.
