Title: Development of High Strength Microcellular Foams Using Polyether Block Amide
Authors: Lin, Kun

Abstract: This report presents a successful development of batch foaming techniques of the engineering elastomer. The polyether block amide (PEBAX) was investigated as an engineering elastomer by using batch foaming techniques. The Pebax provide a unique combination of mechanical and chemical properties. Understanding the effect of the different parameter in batch foaming process allows obtaining the high quality foamed product of the engineering elastomer. Temperature has been considered as an important parameter in the batch foaming process. It was shown that the density of foamed product was decreasing by the temperature increasing under its melting temperature. Both temperature and pressure have to reach the minimum requirement to obtain the fine foamed product. As an experiment result, it indicates that there is an optimal portfolio of foaming parameter for the different Pebax resin.
