MicroGREEN Polymers' (MGP) - Ad-air™ technology enhance
insulative and reflective properties of films while reducing the polymer

MicroGreen Polymers is using its Ad-air™ technology to create plastic products
to be lighter, recyclable and with smaller negative environmental impact.
Ad-air™ technology can be applied to plastics to improve thermal insulation, and
dielectric and optical properties while being light weight.

The process starts with trapping CO2 in the polymer matrix of a roll of plastic,
and heating it up just below the glass transition temperature of the polymer. The
process can be adjusted to get controlled bubble size and the location of the
bubble layer within the plastic matrix. Entrapped air bubbles decreases the film
density and imparts unique properties to the product including, increased light
reflection and better insulation. Get to know more on MicroGREEN Polymers'
