Reduce the weight and amount of plastic in finished goods
Foaming agents facilitate the formation of voids (cavities filled with gas) in areas that would normally be solid plastic. This not only reduces the weight of the finished product but also reduces the amount of plastic used. Lighter weight products lower transportation costs and reduce environmental impact.
Chemical foaming agents, in masterbatch form, can be added to a polymer blend before extrusion, rather than injecting nitrogen or fluorocarbons into the molten extrudate.
Ampacet offers a full range of exothermic and endothermic chemical foaming agents, each tailored to specific applications.
Ampacet chemical foaming agents are specifically designed for thin gauge blown, cast or extruded products. Typical applications include tablecloths, placemats, merchant and shopping bags, and rigid blown molded containers.
