Chemical Foaming & Nucleating Agents


Reduces Part Weights

Hydrocerol™ chemical foaming and nucleating 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 to 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.
