plastic composite trims with foaming agent extruded

How to Mold & Extrude Using Chemical Foaming Agents - Plastics ...Thermoplastics can be foamed in a number of ways to obtain various densities. Generally speaking, a blowing agent is mixed with the polymer melt to obtain a plastic article with reduced density by displacing polymer with gas. However, the density or weight reduction is only one of several advantages that foamed plastics have to offer. Other common benefits include sink removal, reduced warpage, and increased production speed. Blowing or foaming agents fall into two general ...

Wood-Filled Plastics: They Need the Right Additives for Strength ...And on the extrusion line, processing additives are essential to achieving both economical line speeds and smooth surfaces without so-called edge tearing. The most critical areas of additive selection for WPCs are coupling agents, lubricants, and colorants, with chemical foaming agents and biocides not far behind. Selection of specific types for WPCs depends on the base resin. Polyethylene-based wood compositesmainly recycled HDPEaccount for 80% of the market.

Beyond Decking: Wood Composites Branch Out : Plastics TechnologyAtlas molds some shiny white PVC trim parts that look painted, but aren't, and show no fiber at all. Atlas also is developing cabinet doors that have a shiny white styrenic surface. Another unusual recent development is a coinjected toilet seat with a wood-filled core and a shiny white surface of polypropylene with no wood. It's molded by Centoco plastics in Windsor, Ont., which has a patent on the process. foaming agents are used in tiny amounts to help pack out injection molded parts.
