The State of Foam Forming Technology

VTT's Foam forming sessions reviewed the latest advances in the foam forming technology and showcase the properties of selected end products. VTT and several other organizations discussed their advances with this technology. The potential of the technology has been verified and new product applications have been demonstrated in several trials done with both large companies and small and medium size enterprises. Some products can be lightened by as much as 15–25% and the most recent results indicate about 20% reduction in drying costs in papermaking.
