Azote High Performance Foams Fueling Artistic Creativity:Zotefoams is the world’s leading manufacturer of polyolefin block foams marketed under the Plastazote® Evazote® and Supazote® brands. ‘Azote®’ foams are characterised by their insert light weight, outstanding physical performance characteristics, consistent cell size, depth of colour and lack of in-built stresses. These high purity materials have been used for artistic purposes for many years and the ability to manipulate them is seen as a commercial skill in creative circles.
Azote foams are simple to manipulate by hand. They can be cut with scissors, sawn, hot wired, carved with a craft knife, drilled, sanded, glued, melt laminated and even welded with a heat gun. Being crosslinked they can also be thermoformed easily (and at relatively low temperatures) and are also suitable for ‘direct to body’ moulding.
