MuCell Microcellular Foaming Solutions for Engineered Plastic Parts

Improved Quality & Lower Costs

Consumer

The MuCell process provides many unique characteristics in injection molded consumer goods.

Physical foaming for example enhances the energy absorbance of TPU and soft PVC molded parts.

The decrease in material density provides injection molded parts used in water sports with added buoyancy. Many internal paper printer parts are manufactured using the MuCell process, obtaining dimensionally stable and warpage free components critical to the required accuracy in such parts.

Implementing the MuCell process typically reduces part costs by 10 to 20% as a result of less material consumption, shorter cycle time and reduced machine clamping tonnage requirements.

    "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."
