Hydrocerol 2017

Hydrocerol – Chemical Foaming Agents is an additive masterbatches used to  reduce weight, improve performance and optimize costs in products ranging from business machine housings to food packaging to material-handling systems, automotive parts and window profiles.


Application Benefits

  • Weight reduction
  • Raw material savings
  • thermal  insulation
  • acoustic insulation
  • increased stiffness-to-weight ratio
  • improved surface texture
  • elimination of warpage
  • elimination of sink marks
  • more efficient processing


Special Effects


  • pearlescent appearance
  • soft, non-slip texture


Hydrocerol additive masterbatches can also be used to achieve special surface effects when combined with colorants in multilayer containers. Light refraction caused by the foam can have a brightening effect that results in a pearlescent appearance. When used in the surface layer of a container, the foaming agent can yield a soft, non-slip texture.


Base Resin

Can be used to foam almost all commonly used thermoplastic resins and blends, including:

  • HDPE
  • PS
  • ABS
  • PET
  • PETG
  • Polycarbonate(PC)
  • Polycarbonate/ABS (PC/ABS)
  • Polyamide (Nylon)
  • Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE)
  • PVC
