BSI Foaming Agents deliver Speed, Quality and Savings

BSI Foaming Agents (CFA’s) provide many solutions that support the primary objectives of every plastics processor- Speed, Quality and Savings. With a diverse range of products BSI Foaming Agents include Endothermic, Exothermic, Endo/Exo Blends, as well as custom formulated Multi-functional products that contain color-foam-additives.

 

Benefits:

  • Part weight reduction up to 20%
  • Decrease Cycle time up to 15% and increased throughput speeds
  • Elimination of outgassing for improved part finishing
  • Finer cell structure provides smoother surface areas
  • Improved physical properties with superior distribution
  • Reduce pack and hold pressures and times
  • Smoother surface areas
  • Removes sink marks
  • Environmentally friendly

 

Processes:

  • Injection Molding
  • Co-injection Molding
  • Structural Foam Molding
  • Rotational Molding
  • Extrusion and Co-Extrusion
  • Direct Gas Extrusion
  • Wood-Plastic Composite Extrusion
  • Wire and Cable Extrusion

Endothermic CFA’s are chemicals that take heat out and typically produce much smaller cell structure creating improved processing, better physical properties and improved appearance.

Exothermic CFA’s generate heat during the decomposition process, yield more volume of gas and higher gas pressure.

Endothermic and Exothermic CFA Blends deliver a collaboration effect that provides attributes that each cannot supply by independently- the best of both chemistries.
