Plastic Foam Market Expected to Grow with Significant CAGR in 2032 – Queen Anne and Mangolia News
Plastic foams or polymer foam is a sponge-like material prepared by the polymer matrix. It is generally a dispersion of a gas in the form of a blowing agent in a polymer matrix. Plastic foaming is achieved by physical, chemical and mechanical methods.
Some of the common methods include thermal decomposition by chemical blowing agent, mechanical whipping of gas into liquid polymer, chemical blowing reaction, incorporation of tiny beads into polymer mass, and other methods. Plastic foams offer extensive properties such as lightweight material, superior thermal and acoustic insulation, good strength to weight ratio, energy absorption capacity and good damping and comfort properties.
