Blowing agents are widely used as additives in the polymeric foam industry. They are used as a part of the production process mainly to lend certain desired properties to polymeric foam. The importance of blowing agents is steadily rising for companies as the demand for low-cost foam products rises.

Blowing agents play a crucial role by helping to induce a specific cellular structure to the foamed material. This helps reduce the density of the foam, improve its acoustic and thermal ... Read more

Segmetal Analysis:

Blowing agents are available in two types namely exothermic and endothermic. The blowing agents decompose and generate environmentally neutral gases when heated. The endothermic type blowing agents are used because they carry out gas production until heat input is provided. This makes endothermic blowing agents easy to manage during processing. Moreover, ...

Blowing agents are available in two types namely exothermic and endothermic. The blowing agents decompose and generate environmentally neutral gases when heated. The endothermic type blowing agents are used because they carry out gas production until heat input is provided. This makes endothermic blowing agents easy to manage during processing. Moreover, the endothermic blowing agents absorb heat energy from their surroundings. This ideally reduces the mould cooling times and the ability to ... Read more
