Chemical foaming agents are well established
in the plasics industry. They are mainly used for weight reduction
of products made in extrusion or injection molding process.
Moreover, there are a lot of further possibilities
with chemical foaming agents.
They reduce production costs by increasing the output. This
can be achieved with shorter cycle times and sink mark reduction.
Further capabilities of polimeric foams are
surface effects, soft-touch effect and better insulation properties.
Chemical foaming agents are further used
as nucleating agents in the direct gassing process for regulation
of the cell size.
Masterbatches are available in several
mixtures from 5% to 60% of active ingredient.
offers solutions for most applications in extrudion and injection
moulding with nearly all polymers.
We offer a wide range of standard products
and “tailor made” solutions for your special requirements.
We will gladly advise you which foaming
agent is suitable for your application.
