Trexel is in the business of providing technology which places tiny cells of gas in plastic parts, enabling lighter, more dimensionally stable products which can be produced on smaller, more energy-efficient equipment.

Trexel Technology Evolution

Microcellular foaming technology was originally conceptualized and invented at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with work starting in 1979 under the supervision of Dr. Nam Suh. In 1995 Trexel was granted an exclusive worldwide license for the further development and commercialization of the technology.

Today, Trexel is the exclusive provider of the MuCell® microcellular foam technology for injection molding and maintains an extensive global patent portfolio. Trexel provides world-class engineering support, training, and other design and processing services, as well as the equipment and components integral to the MuCell® process.

Since 1995, Trexel has applied MuCell® to a variety of applications, it has developed industry-leading know-how and has experience foaming virtually every thermoplastic material family. Trexel’s equipment has evolved steadily as well, and the MuCell® solutions offered today benefit from 20+ years of experience.

Trexel also offers the TecoCell® line of chemical foaming products. TecoCell® products are uniquely formulated to provide excellent microcellular structures in an easy-to-implement additive.
