What We Do
Microcellular plastic foam is plastic that has been specially foamed so as to created micro-pores or cells. The common definition includes foams with pore size on the order of 10 μm in diameter (from 0.1 to 100 μm typically.) Since the cells are so small, to the casual observer this foam retains the appearance of a solid plastic. Microcellular foams have been made in the density range of 5 to 99% of the base material. Ordinary foam has cell diameters of 100 to 500 μm and density of only 0.3-50% of virgin material.
