Porofor® ADC

Porofor® ADC is a low-dust organic chemical blowing agent for the production of polymer foam that is used in polymer melts, rubber compounds and PVC plastisols.

Porofor ADC is a universally applicable chemical blowing agent based on azodicarbonic acid diamide.

It has a particularly fine, precisely controlled particle size for reliable performance. In the presence of activators, its addition leads to an earlier and more rapid decomposition as compared to an azodicarbonic acid diamide with a coarser average particle size. This effect causes a more complete decomposition and leads to whiter foams.

With a gas yield of about 220 to 230 ml/g, Porofor ADC is a cost effective blowing agent with an excellent cost/performance ratio.
