Mistrocell®

Our talc range Mistrocell is an ideal nucleating agent for foam composites with improved stiffness. It’s ideal for the automotive or packaging industry.
Mistrocell

Add density and stiffness to foams with higher cell density

Mistrocell is a range of talcs that can improve the stiffness of foams at lower densities. This can optimize lightweight materials and lead to other benefits. Mistrocell has a unique micro-lamellar morphology that generates a larger number of cell nuclei, resulting in finer cell structure and higher cell density.

Mistrocell:

  • Increases cell density significantly
  • Promotes fine and regular cell size
  • Improves stiffness at lower density
  • Optimizes lightweight materials

Using micro-lamellar Mistrocell as a nucleating agent in polypropylene results in foams with cell densities twice as high as those obtained with regular lamellar talc.

At this loading, using the injection-molding MuCell foaming process, a weight reduction of 10% can be achieved with the same specific elastic storage modulus as an unfilled solid polypropylene. 

Mistrocell can also be used in polystyrene to achieve microcellular foams and has proven effective in polyolefins and polystyrene compounds.
