MuCell offers benefits for thin-wall packaging, too


So you thought that MuCell microcellular foaming technology was only great for thick-walled parts. That’s not entirely true. MuCell foaming technology, which creates a microcellular material structure in plastic parts, holds a lot of benefits in thin-walled packaging applications as well.

For over 20 years, Trexel has supplied MuCell foaming technology, which involves the introduction of Nitrogen or CO2 as the foaming agent in the supercritical state into the polymer in the plasticizing unit of an injection molding machine. Specifically within the packaging market, MuCell meets the growing demands and trends by providing molders benefits such as lower part costs due to lower material consumption and increased productivity and efficiencies; increased mold cavitation and thin walling by lowering cavity pressure in-mold labeling and the ability to achieve complex product designs.
