Foam Shadow Packs

Foam Shadow Packs

At Kewell Converters Ltd. we provide the perfect solution to tool control in the form of our shadow pack foam inserts. These have a crucial role to play in many engineering fields where to mislay a tool would be a disaster possibly leading to devastating results, including loss of life.

We precision machine inserts to hold each individual tool that is required for a particular process - maybe on the assembly line of an automotive, aviation or aerospace plant, or in the sterile environment of an operating theatre at a hospital.

Then we laminate foams of contrasting colours together, so if a tool is missing it is immediately and starkly apparent and alerts members of the workforce to the need to find it without delay.

In the context of medical environments, Zotefoam's chemically-inert materials are ideal - latex-free, hypoallergenic, non-toxic and some grades are able to withstand the high temperatures of an autoclave to ensure absolute cleanliness time after time.  An autoclave bombards equipment with high- pressure saturated steam at 121 °C (249°F) for around 15–20 minutes. 

On board aeroplanes, flammability is an issue. The use of Zotek F, which is flame retardant, complies with all the current aviation flammability regulations.
