Ecocell

Lighten up! A revolutionary foaming agent to reduce material and resin consumption

Ecocell® is a patented technology that infuses microscopic air bubbles throughout the polymer during the conversion of that polymer into a finished item. Ecocell® contains a combination of additives in a pelletized polymer base that when heated above 393°F (200°C) releases a small quantity of carbon dioxide creating an air-pocket or foam cell in the polymer. The foam cell diameter is usually about 125 microns, and, depending on polymer type and process, sometimes smaller. At this size they are invisible to the naked eye. With Ecocell® it is possible to reduce the density, and thus, resin consumption, by up to 35 % using conventional processing equipment and over 50 % in processes specifically designed for foaming.
