At KCL, we convert specialist high grade foams such as PLASTAZOTE, EVAZOTE and ZOTEK into foam strips for use in all segments of the engineering sector. These functional closed-cell materials are lightweight, with outstanding energy absorption capabilities, chemical resistance, thermal retention and acoustic damping.
The foam strips can be fabricated in a number of densities, in various colours, and in an array of material grades which can withstand temperatures ranging between -70°C and +200°C
While perfect for use in the field of automotive refinement for noise, vibration, harshness and sound quality (NVH) concerns, such high quality products can be used in many demanding environments, both exterior and interior, where high performance is critical. These include chemical, oil, gas, space, military and aviation industry applications and heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) enclosures.
We have a number of highly-specialised processes in our substantial factory, which we can bring into use to fabricate foam strip to meet engineering briefs with precision.
Our reel-to-reel slitting system employs laser core and knife positioning, cutting foam in rolls to any specified length, slit to widths varying between 12 mm to 1600 mm. We also use manual and computer controlled (CNC) log roll slitting which is extremely easy to set up and suitable for small or large runs - a particularly cost-effective option.
A guillotine enable us to cut strips individually up to a metre in width. We also produce foam strips kiss cut on rolls to your requirements, for ease of application, packing and transport. We can laminate strips together if you require greater thickness.
If you need a foam strip for an engineering application, please call us to discuss your requirements.
