Foamable Compounds That Withstand Thermal Cycling

CCG’s foamable compounds provide higher thermal stability (250° C), lower heat transfer and the physical properties to withstand thermal cycling that can occur with Power over Ethernet (PoE) in applications such as LED lighting.

To support the growth of these compounded polymers, CCG has added new compounding equipment to vertically integrate the company from compounding through extrusion.

Our $3 million capital investment in Buss Kneader and twin-screw compounding lines reflects a commitment to compounding focused on balancing properties that arise from the evolving need for more thermally stable materials for Power over Ethernet (PoE).

Lightweighting plastics by chemically foaming polymers produces compounds that are especially suited to the needs of the aerospace and automotive industries.
