About Reedy Chemical Foam

In 1989, Michael Reedy took the burgeoning technology of CO2 chemical foaming agents and applied them to the nucleation of expanded ldpe. The goal was to reduce harmful emissions to the atmosphere while recognizing the balance between environmental sustainability and the bottom line. Since that time Reedy has become a globally respected name in the advancement of thermoplastic light-weighting.

SAFOAM® CFAs are available in pellets and powders with worldwide distribution from 15 countries. The endothermic technology is used to create fine cell structures in all thermoplastics and engineering resins to reduce weight, increase output, reduce machine energy and more. SAFOAM® is used as stand-alone gassing agent or in combination with other gases. SAFTEC® Specialty Additives include melt strength enhancers, anti-statics, and process stabilizers to enhance foam performance. In 2015, as in 1989, we are Committed to the Future of Plastics.
