CellMat Technologies has a extrusion foaming line to evaluate new raw materials, new nucleating agents, flame retardants, etc. and physical blowing agents (PBA) for the development of new products with advanced properties.
The line is very versatile and it is fully instrumented with melt temperature and pressure sensors in different positions, which allows performing different types of production tests and obtaining a complete information about the behavior of the system under study.
