The MuCell process helps manufacturers of packaging products reach their sustainability goals by reducing the usage of petroleum based plastic resin.
Since the physical foaming process does not alter the chemistry of the polymer, MuCell foamed products can be recycled within their designated material group.
The substantially reduced injection pressure in comparison to conventional molding allows for thinner wall molding applications without increasing the clamp tonnage of the molding machine.
The elimination of flow restrictions during cavity filling provide for unique design freedom, such as the thickest walls at the end of fill for sealing lips in food containers. Part cost savings with MuCell are typically 5 to 15%.
