HECO®FOAM
FOAMING AGENT ADDITIVE

With HECO®FOAM foaming and nucleating agents, your foam bubble will not burst, because our additives have a foaming and balancing effect achieving an extremely fine and consistent foam structure in foamed plastics.

Product benefits – Additives for plastics

EVEN

Provides a fine and consistent foam structure.

UNIVERSAL

For a wide range of plastics and processing temperatures.

HECO®FOAM foaming agents for the plastics industry

Our HECO®FOAM additives foam plastics and are particularly suitable for applications in extrusion and injection moulding. Parallel to foaming, they level out possible sink marks so that unwanted cavities do not occur in the plastic and an even surface is achieved.

The additives we have developed react as purely chemical, endothermic blowing and nucleating agents. Forming gas through heat supply which penetrates the plastic and literally inflates it. To give the selected HECO®FOAM blowing agent the required kick – and your plastic the desired foaming effect – we select the activation temperature to match your individual processing temperature.

Our HECO®FOAM foaming and nucleating agents may foam big, but they are anything but “hot-air”.

HECO®FOAM 900 C s our versatile blowing agent – in powder form. With this purely chemical, endothermic foaming and nucleating agent, our customers achieve an extremely fine and consistent cell structure at can be used for various polymers.

HECO®FOAM 940 PE is supplied as a granule and is suitable not only for polyethylene but also for polypropylene. The activation temperature of the additive is 160°C. At a processing temperature of 220°C, the gas yield is at its optimum. Let us boost your plastic together.
