Low Pressure Structural Foam

Low Pressure Structural Foam

Structural foam is a low-pressure form of injection molding...

...which utilizes most thermoplastics, (including post-consumer regrinds), to mold rigid product, which can have thicker walls and higher stiffness-to-weight ratios than standard injection molded product. Our product development team brings expertise in manufacturing, which integrates the design, engineering, and quality control disciplines for superior part performance and cost effectiveness.
In the structural foam process, a physical or chemical blowing agent is mixed in with the resin. The resin is shot into the cavity, but not completely filled or packed out. The blowing agent expands to push the resin to the extremities of the cavities. As the part cools, the internal pressure of the foaming action takes up the internal shrinkage, and reduces sinks over ribs or heavy cross-sections.
