Abstract
The present work aims to compare two different injection moulding foaming technologies, the already known MuCell® process and the new emerged technology IQ Foam®, as well as the cell structure and mechanical behavior of the obtained components. Glass fiber reinforced-polypropylene (>PP GF<) was employed to produce rectangular plates at solid and foamed conditions by using MuCell® and IQ Foam® processes combined with the complementary Core Back expansion molding technology, and the material s...
