Turning Trees into Foam
Particle Foams Made from Cellulose Esters for Large-Scale Production
Particle foams based on renewable cellulose derivatives could be an alternative to oil-based expanded polystyrene. In the context of a development project, researchers demonstrated that cellulose-based particle foams can be produced with varying densities using conventional processing equipment. In addition, these materials do not require halogen-containing flame retardants.Beitrag auf Deutsch lesen
