WELLS PLASTICS BLOWING AGENTS

Wells Plastics Blowing agents may be used to produce foamed insulation materials and to reduce sink marks in moulding applications.

Wells Plastics blowing agent masterbatches contain specialist active ingredients that are designed to decompose at a specific given temperature, evolving gases such as nitrogen (N2) or carbon dioxide (CO2).

The evolved gases will impart a cellular structure to the polymer, making the finished part lighter in weight and also using less polymer to fill the mould volume. Total conversion of the additive to gas within the user’s process is critical for ensuring that the maximum cost reduction benefit is achieved.

Blowing agents are widely used to achieve weight reduction and polymer saving in injection moulding e.g. automotive parts, plastic pallets and crates.

Wells Plastics blowing agents are designed to deliver controlled, uniform cell structures, providing the processor with batch to batch reproducibility. Both endothermic and exothermic blowing agent masterbatches are available from Wells Plastics.
