Features

Thermal insulation, cool reserving and heat resistance

Excellent in thermal insulation and cool reserving (Thermal conductivity: 0.032 W/m K)Excellent in heat resistance (Microwave-safe)Application example: cool reserving bags

Environment, safety and health

Low VOC, no odor, meets Food Sanitation Act in Japan (The Ministry of Welfare #370) and low stimulation to the skin (FDA/ISO10993, USA)

Waterproofing and dustproofing

Excellent in waterproofing (equivalent to IPX8 )Excellent in dustproofing (equivalent to IP6)High-airproofing as micro closed cell structureApplication example: sealant for tablet

High-impact absorption

Excellent in impact absorptionFlexible and low-warpApplication example: impact absorption tray

Moisture permeability, waterproofing and oil absorption (open cell structure)

Excellent in moisture permeability and waterproofing (not through water, but through air and vapour only)Excellent in oil absorptionApplication example: moisture permeability and waterproofing sheet

Processability

Possible to vacuum forming, heat fusing and welder fusing.Can be printed on the surface because it is made of microcell.Easy to laminate with polyolefin materials.Application example: printed bags
