Generally the foaming agents must undergo thermal decomposition and generate gas pressure in the matrix sufficient to overcome atmospheric pressure and cause foaming.  FOAMING PROCESS During the production of metallic foam as soon as the metal softens, the  blowing agent expands giving rise to small spherical bubbles. During the growth of these bubbles interaction between cells results in change of shape of bubbles from spherical to polygon and thus final shape of  bubble formed is polygon surrounded by liquid layer.    Figure 1.Steps of formation of the metallic foam
