Laminating Foam

Flextech has been providing innovative solutions for our customer's challenging projects since 1992. Flextech objectives are to be fair and honest in all of dealings with our suppliers, customers, and employees. We strive to design and produce high quality products for our customers in a timely manner and that are defect free. Laminating Foam Laminating foam is a process by which manufacturers bring a foam surface and a substrate (another material) together and bond them. Some of the foams manufacturers can laminate include: polypropylene, polyethylene, urethane, EVA and cross-link foam. Substrates used in the foam lamination may be a non-woven material, a film, a fabric or another foam. By laminating foam, manufacturers are able to alter its stability, density and general makeup for their purposes.<

Laminating Foam List

Laminating foam is useful to customers in industries including: aerospace, appliance, automotive, construction, consumer product, electronics, healthcare, HVAC, flooring, marine, military and sports and recreation. They use laminated foam in a number of different applications, such as: sound barrier, heat resistance and liquid and gas containment. They can also be used as: foam surfaces, wheelchair cushions, stretcher pads, positioners, professional displays, interior fender panels, truck liners, footwear and even garments.

There are a number of different foam laminating methods available to fabricators, the most common of which are adhesive lamination and and flame lamination. During adhesive lamination, fabricators laminate the foam using bonding agents, such as pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA). Agents may be applied directly onto both surfaces, or they may be applied indirectly as pre-coated release liners called transfer transfer tape. During flame foam lamination, fabricators pass the foam over an open flame, which creates a thin layer of molten polymer on its surface. Then, fabricators bring this surface in contact with the substrate while applying pressure. This creates a bond the foam and the substrate.

Other methods include heat preparation, which is common for sealing bags, and corona treating. Machines fabricators may use to achieve the perfect laminated part include: flame laminators, cold laminators, hand fed laminators, automatic laminators, pouch laminators or roll laminating machinery.

Laminating foam fabricators can customize your foam products in a number of ways. For example, if you’re ordering laminated white foamboard, fabricators can typically offer it to you in different finishes, like: matte, sticky and gloss. They can also add custom prints.
