The foam industry offers lightweight materials for a wide range of applications including packaging, automotive/transport, insulation in construction, furnishing and specialist clothing. The production process is tailored for each material and use, to generate the correct cellular structure and properties. Compounding ingredients may need to be reformulated to move from a denser plastic whilst maintaining performance. Foaming offers the chance to reduce costs as less material is required and the product weighs less in transport. The environmental benefits can be excellent with the correct choice of compound and blowing agent.
Polymer Foam 2013 offers the chance to meet and discuss production technology, innovations, and uses of cellular plastic materials with some of the most influential professionals in the industry.
