Compatible Processing Methods

Advancell microspheres’ many advantages are clear in the array of production methods that manufacturers can apply them to.

The product is so flexible because of its durability to processing heat and external pressure, which expands its potential. Manufacturers can use it in an even wider array of applications because it secures the properties that processing methods demand.


Extrusion is a process that manufacturers use to create objects of a fixed cross-sectional profile. It pushes a material through a die of the desired cross-section.

Extrusion has two main advantages over other manufacturing processes: it can create complex cross-sections and can work with brittle materials because the material undergoes only compressive and shear stresses.

Main Applications

  • Sealing materials for automobiles
  • Hoses and tubing
  • Synthetic woods
  • Sandwich panels
  • PVC flooring


Injection molding forms three-dimensional shapes, similar to extrusion. During injection molding, molten plastic or other materials push through a two-dimensional die that opens into a mold. The scrap is recyclable in both processes, which reduces waste.

The injection molding process is based on the molten die-casting method.

Main Applications

  • Shoe soles
  • Synthetic corks


In the surface engineering context, a coating is a layer of material deposited onto a substrate to enhance surface properties for corrosion and wear protection.

Many factors influence the coating choice: service environment, life expectancy, substrate material compatibility, component shape, size, cost and more.

Main Applications

  • Thermal papers
  • Synthetic leathers
  • Expansion inks
  • Wallpapers
