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.
