Cruz Foam

Cruz Foam transforms chitin, a biopolymer found in shrimp shells, into structural foams with an environmentally friendly process. Cruz Foam addresses both the front-end and back-end of a ‘green’ product by up-cycling chitin found in waste to create foam to replace petroleum-based foams. Cruz Foam is less costly to produce, and matches or exceeds the mechanical properties of current polystyrene and polyurethane structural foam.
