Cellular Plastic is the specialty type of plastic containing several cells disposed uniformly throughout its mass. Practically in any polymer, thermoplastic or thermoset can be made into cellular plastic. Technically cellular plastic can have two structural configuration namely closed cell type and open cell type. Depending upon closed cell type or open cell type there is a variation in physical and chemical properties of cellular plastic. Cellular plastics can be formed into sheet, plate, film, slabs or blocks, boards depending upon end use requirement. The properties such as high strength to weight ratio, sound absorption, shock absorption, resistance against heat and cold, flotation make cellular plastic an attractive commodity. Hence, widespread physical and chemical properties of cellular plastic sheet, plate and film can be used in diverse application sectors for multiple usage.
