Endex1042™

Hybrid Endo-exothermic Chemical Foaming Agent and Process Aid

 

n  INTRODUCTION:

Endex 1042™ is a chemicalfoaming agent which utilizes innovative technology to produce superior qualityfoamed products. It has a high gas yield and the fast response time typical ofexothermic chemical foaming agents, and generates fine, closed-cell foams, whichresult in moldings and extrusions of high quality.

 

n USAGES:

Endex 1042™ is intended for use in a widevariety of processes, including:

• Injection molding for sink mark eliminationand warp reduction

• Structural Foam molding

• Gas Counter-pressure foam molding

• Nitrogen SFM for finer cell structures andextra weight reduction

• Gas Assist molding for extra weightreduction and sink elimination

• Extrusion of Sheet, Film, and Profiles, Wire& Cable insulation

• Blow Molding, Rotational Molding

 

n USE LEVELS:

Endex 1042™ uselevels will vary with the application, but the following guidelines can be usedas a starting point. Optimization for each application is recommended:

 

• Structural Foam Molding

1.00 %

• Sink Mark Elimination

0.20 %
