Foamed products are widely used in domestic and industrial applications. Indeed, they are integral to our daily lives. Foamed products range from seals, sealing profiles and thermal insulation products used in buildings and automobiles to rigid sheets and profiles for the construction industry.

Chemical blowing agents may be used universally to produce the whole range of chemically foamed products.

They are equally suitable for a great variety of polymers such as
Flexible PVC and Rigid PVC
• The polyolefins polypropylene (PP), high and low density polyethylene (HDPE, LDPE)
• Polystyrene and copolymers such as styrene acrylonitriles (SAN, ABS)
• Engineering thermoplastics such as polyphenyloxide (PPO), polyamide (PA), polybutylene and polyethylene terephthalate (PBT, PET)
• Natural and the following grades of synthetic rubber:
  o styrene-butadiene copolymers (SBR), polyisoprene (IR)
o acrylonitrile-butadiene copolymers (NBR)
o blends of NBR and PVC (NBR/PVC)
o polychloroprene (CR)
o ethylene-vinylacetate copolymers (EVA)
o and ethylene-propylene terpolymers (EPDM)
