Trexel delivers some unique advantages to the consumer goods industry beyond just cost reduction, design freedom, and sustainability. MuCell® has been used for its energy return capabilities in athletic footwear and for its buoyancy characteristics in water sports equipment, for example.

Injection Molded Consumer Goods

The MuCell® process provides many unique characteristics in injection molded consumer goods. Below are a few of the many benefits businesses will see, using the Trexel technology in their product creation:

Energy Absorbance

Physical foaming enhances the energy absorbance of TPU and soft PVC molded parts.

Buoyancy icon

Added Buoyancy

The decrease in material density provides injection molded parts used in water sports with added buoyancy.

Reduced cost icon

Reduced Part Cost

Implementing the MuCell® process typically reduces part costs by 10 to 20% as a result of less material consumption, shorter cycle time and reduced machine clamping tonnage requirements.
