Foamcore Blow-Molded Structural Components For Transportation Applications

from SPE Plastics Research Online

Emphasis on weight reduction throughout the transportation industry has spurred efforts to remove as much mass as possible from vehicles to improve performance. Since the 1960s, plastics have largely replaced steel in structural elements of vehicles such as body panels, grills, and bumpers. The technologies used to process these automotive parts include various types of molding, of which structural foam molding and blow molding are of relevance here. We have developed and optimized a process, called Foamcore, that uses traditional blow-molding equipment combined with a particle foam injection unit to produce a composite blow-molded part with a solid foam core. more
