Streamoulding strength test results

10 August 2012

Categories: Streamoulding

The Welsh Composite Centre at Swansea University have completed some independent strength tests on samples produced using our water foaming process - Streamoulding. This is a question we are often asked-whether the foamed mouldings are as strong as solid mouldings

Energy & cycle time savings chart

Categories: Manufacturing, Streamoulding

The addition of a very small amount of water during Streamoulding reduces the viscosity of the polymelt and as a result reduces the cycle time as well as lowering the load on the moulding machine during injection. This generates energy savings in addition to material savings from weight reductions in the moulded parts.

This table shows how the additional savings are related to various weight reductions which can be set and controlled through the Streamoulding process.
