New foaming technology from Cambridge Consultants is set to banish potentially harmful emissions from aerosols containing everyday items such as shaving foam and hair mousse. It provides a low-cost alternative to volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
- Replaces uniform rows of cylindrical aluminum aerosol cans with low-cost polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles in a range of shapes and sizes
- Smaller air bubbles in the foam give a smoother texture — for things like shaving foam or whipped cream — than conventional techniques
- Could also bring molecular gastronomy at the touch of a button into the home
- Foaming technology does not require dissolved or liquefied gases such as VOCs or even carbon dioxide or nitrous oxide
- Bubbles produced are a fraction of the size of a grain of sand — with a diameter of less than 40 microns
