Benefits of Blowing Agents

Benefits of Blowing Agents

The benefits of these ready to use systems are summarized above.

Adeka Palmarole has developed a new generation of blowing agents specifically designed for the manufacture of food contact polystyrene, PET or PP foam containers. By using this technology, less material is required to produce a packaging of similar volume. These ready to use endothermic systems generate regular and constant foam structures, at low loadings (1.5- 1.8%) and tolerate a wide processing window. Initial mechanical and physical properties of the plastic are preserved. These blowing agents can be used for thermoformed packaging based on PP, PS and PET in applications such as egg cartons, meat trays, fast food containers.
