ZOTEK® PEBA Foam: ZOTEK PEBA Foam (previously known as PEBAX Foam) - the ULTIMATE LIGHT-WEIGHT FOAM. It is a light weight closed-cell crosslinked foam based on Pebax®, a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) from Arkema. ZOTEK®PEBA foam combines the outstanding mechanical properties of Pebax® with the benefits of the unique Zotefoams nitrogen saturation foaming process.
ZOTEK® N Foam: ZOTEK N Foam is a range of lightweight, closed cell, foams, currently in development and based on the engineering thermoplastic polyamide. The main benefits of polyamide are its thermal and chemical resistance. Polyamide is particularly resistant to swelling by hydrocarbons such as oils, which combined with its thermoplastic nature allow complex shapes to be fabricated economically.
High Performance Polyamide 6 (Nylon 6) Foam
- High temperature resistance
- Excellent chemical resistance
- High strength and toughness
- Outstanding resistance to hydrocarbon oils and fuels
ZOTEK® N is a new range of lightweight, closed cell, cross linked foams based on polyamide 6 (nylon 6), a tough, strong and durable material with outstanding high temperature tolerance and excellent resistance to a range of chemical, particularly hydrocarbons, such as oils and fuels, alcohols and ketones.
ZOTEK® F Foam: ZOTEK F Foam is a range of lightweight, closed cell, foams based on the fluoropolymer Kynar® PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride). It is a remarkable material that offers a unique balance of properties including temperature, UV and chemical resistance combined with excellent flammability performance.
MicroZOTE® Foam: MicroZOTE Foam is a new range of closed-cell, non-crosslinked, microcellular, polyolefin roll foams, manufactured using patented MuCell® extrusion technology.
PALFOAM® Foam: Palfoam (PalFoam) Foam is a chemically cross-linked polyethylene foam manufactured in block form using produced using plate-compressing technology. PalFoam can be supplied as thin sheets or thicker pallets, and can be processed in various forms, according to the client's specifications and requirements. PalFoam is primarily used in the following applications: packaging, automotive (cars, trucks, trains, etc.), toys, orthopaedic products, brushes, car wash machines and other applications. Various additives can be added to the raw foam materials to extend the capabilities and basic features of various products, providing such benefits as ultra-high density, anti-static, conductive, elastic, flame retardants, durability and ultra - violet (UV) and more. The structure of the foam is general a fine uniform closed cell structure (Micro Cell) with a pleasant texture and aesthetic appearance in a variety of densities (30kg/m3 to 200kg/m3), sizes and colours.
GALFOAM® Foam: Galfoam is a cross-linked polyethyelene foam solutions in roll form. The material is supplied in a variety of densities, sizes and colour. It is produced in rolls using injection technology. GalFoam is particularly suitable for acoustic and thermal insulation in the construction, air conditioning, sports, camping and other markets. Foam raw materials can be mixed with additives to extend the capabilities and basic features of various products, providing such benefits as ultra-high density, anti - static, conductive, elastic, flame retardants, durability and ultra - violet (UV) and more.
MICROLEN® Foam: Microlen Foam is another chemically blown, cross linked polyethylene foam block material with a range densities (20 to 180 kg/m3) with a wide range of physical properties and a multitude of applications including automotive, water-sports/leisure, insulation and packaging. They are an inert product, non-toxic, CFC/HCFC fee and reusable foam.
ETHAFOAM® Foam: Ethafoam Medium & High Density Foams are an extruded, closed-cell polyethylene foam plank with a full complement of product options in various densities, colours, thicknesses and properties (mimimums apply). Ethafoam® foam products have been the leader in expanded polyethylene foam packaging for nearly 60 years and the original PE (polyetheylene foam) brand. Given the versatile nature of Ethafoam® polyethylene foam packaging, it is used in a variety of applications, from fragile finishing’s to heavy duty dunnage. Common applications include electronics protection, automotive returnable dunnage, defence packaging, kitted equipment and more. The Ethafoam® line is known for its outstanding dimensional stability and recovery characteristics, while providing unparalleled cushioning protection against repeated impacts. In addition to providing excellent protection, Ethafoam® products are chemical and water resistant.Ethafoam® products are non-cross linked, meaning they can be recycled in our closed loop system. Sealed Air packaging design and development centres will work with you to make sure you get a package that has maximum protection with minimum material. All Ethafoam® products can be reused multiple times before experiencing any degradation in their protective qualities.
STRATOCELL® Foam: Stratocell Foam is a laminated plank of non-crosslinked, closed cell expanded polyethylene foam materials ideal for a wide range of standard packaging applications. The exceptionally high strength-to-weight ratio delivers superior performance while using less material, creating cost-efficient solution and unmatched protection for today’s lighter weight products. Provides cushioning protection against repeated shock, comparable to conventional extruded plank, but with a softer surface that fabricates more easily and heat-bonds without skiving. Stratocell RC Foam polyethylene foam contains a minimum of 65% recycled resin content with the same level of performance as the regular Stratocell® polyethylene foam but the greener, more environmentally friendly choice for sustainability.
RICHFOAM® Foam: Richfoam Foams are a block polyether material and is perfect for bedding, comfort upholstery, technical applications and packaging.
