When choosing a supplier, it is important to know that the materials you purchase for your operation are of the highest quality and are supported by industry leading technical experts with decades of experience in polymer science. Amcor, Inc. has become the go-to source for foamers when looking to create new products, solve manufacturing challenges, and enhance material properties.
Corrugation is one such challenge that many extruders face. Amcor’s corrugation reduction additives include a line of proprietary elastomeric and rheology modifiers that enhance flatness, improve surface quality, and increase lamination speeds. These low-cost additives can mitigate the need for expensive equipment modifications and allow you to extrude consistently high-quality foam.
Ampro N2 by Amcor, Inc. is a process aid designed to improve surface quality (skin) on polyethylene foam. This process aid significantly increases foam compression strength. Ampro-N2 prevents delayed collapse in large profile foam extrusion and is ideally suited for the production of high-quality foam plank, exercise rollers, and floor underlayment. Ampro-N2 melts without imparting shear heat and in most cases, can be added to the extruder without any process condition adjustments.
Amblend-RV is a proprietary high melt strength copolymer with rheological properties specifically designed to enhance foam resilience and resist set. It is beneficial where softness, resiliency, and flexibility is desired. It can be foamed with physical blowing agents to 1.0 lb/ft3.
Due to our in-depth knowledge of plastic foam, we understand how different physical blowing agents impact the foaming and aging processes. For over 20 years, Amcor, Inc. has supplied the PE/PP/PS foaming industry with high purity, high quality gases and gas blends. Our gas customers have access to our technical staff’s vast knowledge of foamable resins and additives, the manufacturing processes, and equipment unique to the foam industry. Amcor’s investment in technology and service enables remote tank monitoring. This allows for just-in-time delivery of your blowing agent.
Regardless of what you foam, Amcor, Inc. is a valuable resource by your side.
