Cost and environmental benefits delivered at source, kinder to the planet
MuCell® technology is a remarkable patented process that creates “micro-bubbles” in the core of plastic parts or products by injecting gas into them as they are manufactured. This produces a foamed core bounded by a solid skin as one integral material that seems indistinguishable from a solid product.
A MuCell extruded part or product can be designed to perform like solid plastic, but will typically use 15-20% less material. These cost and environmental benefits are delivered by using inert carbon dioxide or nitrogen gas reducing plastic content at source.
MuCell Extrusion Technology LLC patented technology, backed by significant know-how, has been developed and successfully applied to LDPE, LLDPE, HDPE, PS, PP,PA, PVDF, PET, PLA, PVC and TPE processing. Other materials are under development.
