Source the latest eco-conscious innovations in foam

Legislation, climate conservation, and customer preference are driving businesses to be conscious of environmental factors. However, with many options on the market, it can be challenging to find the right path. Reducing energy consumption, adopting bio-content, exploring end-of-life options, recycling, material reduction... the list is endless. We have collaborated with our exhibitors to help promote products and services that could be part of your eco-conscious strategy.

NOMAGREENTM Biodegradable Foam

Nomaco introduced the first biodegradable polyethylene foam called NOMAGREEN.  It is made from a proprietary formulation that combines the excellent performance of standard PE foam with the added value of biodegradability once the product is discarded into microbe-rich environment, such as a landfill. NOMAGREEN also provides a more environmentally friendly option for fabricators when dealing with scrap foam that does not get recycled. With NOMAGREEN, Fabricators can now differentiate themselves when working with large OEM companies looking for suppliers whose processes and products are more environmentally responsible. Foam from this formulation can also be reused and recycled in the standard LDPE stream.

SprayIQ

With the help of SprayIQ™ (an innovative monitoring device created by Chem-Trend engineers) and a higher-performing release agent, companies can achieve a significant reduction in product use and scrap rate, reduced cleaning due to less mold buildup, lower VOC emissions, and an improvement in overall productivity. In the long term, companies can forecast product consumption for more accurate ordering precisely. Training for the system and its data reporting is provided by Chem-Trend, which helps operators and managers better monitor throughputs for improved application consistency.

GRFT Molded HR Foam

Over the past several years, GRFT has developed its Bio-content foam, which is currently in our 3.0-pound high-resilience and 4.0-pound high-resilience molded foam systems. The Bio-content offers an improved compression-set, better “hand” or feel, as well as improved UV resistance. As the Sustainability market continues to move more mainstream, our Bio-content offers an additional marketing foundation for your products. End users can now state their foam applications are truly “Sustainable” with our Bio-content foam. GRFT’s Bio-content generally does not cost significantly more than our standard HR foam products. At times, the price can be neutral.

The Future of Foam

Moxietec Technology is revolutionizing the traditional foaming process with its patented methods. By implementing these advanced techniques, Moxietec creates more sustainable foamed products. Our process significantly reduces part scrap, required machine tonnage, and utility usage. Additionally, since the same parts are produced with less polymer and less energy, the overall carbon footprint is minimized. This results in both the products and the production processes being more sustainable.
