Microcell technology helps home appliance manufacturers reduce their costs and increase their efficiency

In order to satisfy the increasingly urgent needs of home appliance manufacturers to achieve lower thermal conductivity, lower filling density, and faster production cycles, Covestro has launched its novel Microcell technology to provide a new solution for home appliance manufacturers to reduce the energy consumption of their refrigerators.

The Microcell system performs very well

Microcell systems not only feature excellent thermal conductivity, but also have great mechanical strength and processing performance. Compared to conventional solutions, the optimized compound formula can make the foam's pores smaller, resulting in:

Thermal insulation improved by up to 16%
Consumption of raw materials reduced by up to 10%
Production efficiency improved by up to 25%
Very good processing performance
Excellent foam surface properties
No additional investment required

Microcell technology helps home appliance manufacturers reduce their costs and increase their efficiency

The technology developed by Covestro provides a brand-new solution for home appliance manufacturers to reduce the energy consumption of their refrigerators. By using Covestro's Microcell technology on a suitably designed refrigerator, the foam's thermal insulation performance can be easily improved by 5% without changing the foaming agent and additives.

Key benefits

  • Excellent performance The Microcell system not only features excellent thermal conductivity, but also has great mechanical strength and processing performance. The thermal insulation can be improved by up to 16% after using an LBA foaming agent formulation.
  • Reduced costs The Microcell system controls the cost of the entire refrigerator's thermal insulation materials within a limited range without requiring any additional investments. At the same time, it also reduces the consumption of raw materials by up to 10%.
  • Improved efficiency Using Covestro's Microcell technology on a suitably designed refrigerator, the thermal insulation of the foam can be easily improved by 5% without changing the foaming agent and additives, improving production efficiency by up to 25%.
