CELOGEN® 754A

Chemical foaming agent for thermoplastics and rubber with a moderate decomposition temperature that does not require the addition of an activator.
Product Overview
CELOGEN® 754A is a chemical blowing agent designed for rubber and thermoplastics. It contains an effective activation system; adding strong activators such as zinc oxide, zinc stearate or ACTICELL® U is unnecessary unless lowering the decomposition temperature is desired.
