Abstract
The properties of polypropylene (PP) foams can be extended by controlling the cellular structure and adding functional fillers. PP-based microcellular foams having an interesting combination of mechanical and transport properties were prepared by two different batch foaming processes. The batch processes employed were a semisolid state CO2 dissolution physical foaming process and a chemical one based on the dissolution of the gases generated by the thermal decomposition of a chemical blowing age...
