PLASTINUM Family of Foaming Solutions

Reducing Carbon Emissions with CO2 Foaming Solutions

Why Use CO2 for Foaming? 

Building on the proven benefits of carbon dioxide (CO2) as a physical blowing agent, we offer sophisticated PLASTINUM® solutions and equipment specifically to meet the metering challenges of liquid carbon dioxide (LIC) in extrusion foaming, polyurethane foaming and foam injection molding processes. The exact metering performance of our solutions plays a key role in the quality of the final foamed product by helping you to overcome the counter-pressure variations that are common in polymer extruders.

These cost-effective CO2 supply and injection solutions can also help you to increase the climate and environmental performance of your plastics foaming processes. Not only is CO2 ideal for foamed polymers such as building insulation (XPS boards) and packaging (high-density PE foams), it also helps you tackle the high global warming potential (GWP) and ozone depletion potential (ODP) challenges associated with the use of more conventional foaming agents such as hydrofluoroolefins (HFOs) and hydrocarbons - with the added bonus of potential productivity gains and cost savings.
