MuCell Microcellular Foaming Solutions for Engineered Plastic Parts

Improved Quality & Lower Costs

Automotive

The MuCell process enables automotive components manufacturers to light weight plastics parts for overall vehicle weight reduction and improved fuel economy.

Part costs are typically reduced by 10 to 20% as a result of lower material consumption, shorter molding cycle times and reduced machine clamping tonnage requirements.

The uniform parts shrinkage and substantially reduced stress in the molded part lead to predictable and repeatable part geometry, allowing for the use of lower cost polyolefin resins without warpage or distortion in the part.

    "We have incorporated the MuCell processing technology into our manufacturing process for over 4 years now and that has allowed us to customize our designs to offer premium cushioning with a reduced amount of material. We have found the durability of these components exceeds standard foam running shoe applications – offering a longer wearing shoe with more rebound and energy return to our customers."
