  • Patent number: 7803849
    Abstract: The present invention is to solve conventional problems, namely, that when an attempt is made to obtain a thick, in-mold foamed molded article with excellent fusibility between beads formed from an acrylic resin expanded beads, cooling takes an extremely long time and production efficiency is poor, and to provide acrylic resin expanded beads with which an in-mold foamed molded article with excellent fusibility between expanded beads can be manufactured in a short cooling time even with a thick foamed molded article such as a block foamed molded article, and the molding cycle can be improved. The acrylic resin expanded beads of the present invention are expanded beads in which an acrylic resin serves as a base resin, and the bead surfaces have continuous ridges in a mesh pattern.

  • Publication number: 20100209689
    Abstract: Expanded styrene resin beads are made of a styrene resin as the base resin and have an average bead diameter of 0.5-10 mm and an apparent density of 0.013-0.15 g/cm3. The expanded beads are characterized in that the expanded beads each has many dimples having a maximum diameter of 5-100 ?m in the surface and that when the expanded beads are secondarily expanded under the conditions of a heating steam temperature of 107° C. and a heating time of 120 seconds, then the secondary expansion ratio determined by dividing the apparent density of the expanded beads before the secondary expansion (g/cm3) by the apparent density of the expanded beads after the secondary expansion (g/cm3) satisfies the relationship (1). Secondary expansion ratio??7.00×{apparent density of expanded beads before secondary expansion (g/cm3)}+1.61 (1).
