Streamoulding®

Cell structure of Streamoulded plastic

These close up photographs have been provided by the Welsh Composites Centre, part of Swansea University who have put together test data relating to samples produced using different streamoulding process parameters. In all cases the material used here is the material used in polystyrene crystal.

The sample has a wall section of 25 x 15mm, you can clearly see the surface skin and foamed inner section.
