Chemical Foaming Agents

Hydrocerol™ Chemical Foaming Agents

Reduces Part Weight

Hydrocerol™ Chemical Foaming Agents are commonly used in consumer goods and automotive components to reduce part weight without compromising stiffness or mechanical properties. In packaging, they save material and improve productivity, while preserving aesthetic appeal. Recently developed Avient technology yields foam with smaller and more uniform cells so that processors can use 10-20% less plastic to create components that are visually identical to heavier, solid-walled parts. This makes Hydrocerol very attractive to companies committed to reducing the potential environmental impact of their products.

Avient’s Foaming Prediction Service uses 3D simulation software to help predict weight reduction, cycle time, and the mechanical properties of automotive parts foamed with Hydrocerol™ Chemical Foaming Agents. This reduces the need for costly physical testing. Read more about this service here.
