First of all, structural foam is a process, not a specific material. In general, structural foam increases the compressive strength and flexural modulus versus solid plastic. Impact strength and tensile strength can have a slight reduction.
Thickness ranges from 3/16” to 3/8” (4.7mm to 10mm). We can go thicker, but usually find it to be more cost effective to add strength with ribbing rather than thicker sections of plastic.
Dimensionally, we can produce parts up to 4’ x 8’ and 30” deep. We have machines that hold 150 lbs of plastic, so we can produce some very large parts.
Our process requires less pressure than standard injection molding. We typically use aluminum tooling, which is less expensive compared to a similar size standard injection (steel) tool.
