PolyOne Introduces Excelite™ IM Chemical Foaming Additives for Injection Molding

August 5, 2019

CLEVELAND – August 5, 2019 – PolyOne today announced availability of ColorMatrix Excelite IM chemical foaming additives (CFAs), formulated specifically for injection molding applications.

As a complement to PolyOne’s liquid Excelite CFA portfolio for extrusion, new Excelite IM CFAs are engineered for a wide range of injection molded polymers, including olefins, PVC, polystyrene, PC/ABS, and high-heat materials.

Excelite IM consists of a fully endothermic concentration that improves dispersion over conventional CFAs for enhanced performance and efficacy. With Excelite IM, processors can achieve density reductions, smoother surface finishes, and notably reduced sink marks resulting in lower scrap rates and higher productivity.

“Excelite IM provides our injection molding customers with process efficiencies and quality improvements that help them differentiate and reduce costs, while reinforcing our proven track record in foaming technologies for weight and density reduction,” says Will Nordloh, general manager, ColorMatrix North America with PolyOne. “We’re also directly addressing customer needs and market trends for sustainability and lightweighting.”

New Excelite IM chemical foaming additives are suitable for use in automotive, construction, commercial, personal care packaging or structural foamed applications.  Specific grades are also available to meet food contact requirements.
