The MuCell® process is used for the physical foaming of thermoplastics. Nitrogen or carbon dioxide can be used as blowing agents. As opposed to chemical foaming, physical foaming can achieve much finer foam structures. The density of the finished item is also greatly reduced.
Advantages: - Suitable for thin-walled parts with large flow path / wall thickness ratios - Reduction in density with significant weight savings
- Tension-free components with reduced shrink marks and distortion
