  • Rohacell Foam ROHACELL® is produced by thermal expansion of a co-polymer sheet of methacrylic acid and methacrylonitrile. During the foaming process the copolymer sheet is converted to PMI - PolyMethacrylImide. Alcohol is used as a blowing agent, thus ROHACELL® contains no fluorinated carbon hydrates and is halogen free. It has a very homogeneous cell structure and isotropic properties.
  • Rohacell HF Foam ROHACELL® HF (= High Frequency) is a closed-cell rigid foam plastic based on PMI (polymethacrylimide) which does not contain any CFCs. The fields of application for ROHACELL® HF are antennas, radomes and X-ray tables. Curing temperature up to 130C (266F). Curing pressure up to 0.35 MPa (50 psi). Sandwich components using ROHACELL® HF as core material can be realized in a single work step (= cocuring). ROHACELL® HF is easy to shape. Thermoformability is another advantage of the core material.
  • Rohacell IG Foam ROHACELL® IG (=Industrial Grade) is a closed-cell rigid foam plastic based on PMI (polymethacrylimide) which does not contain any CFCs. ROHACELL® IG-F has the same physical properties like ROHACELL® IG but smaller cell sizes. The fields of application for ROHACELL® IG and IG-F are model building, vehicle construction and shipbuilding, as well as the manufacture of sports articles and X-ray tables.
  • Stratocell Foam CelluPlank®, Cellu-Cushion® & Stratocell® Polyethylene Foams Light to medium density foams range from 1.2 PCF up to 9.0 PCF Resilient and cost effecient with superior physical properties for cushioning, insulation and barrier applications High performance cushioning for light, medium and heavy-duty applications using less foam Less foam results in smaller packages, reducing material and shipping costs Can be reused, returned and recycled Available in a variety of colors, including white, black and anti-static grades

  • Zotek F Foam ZOTEK® F:- ZOTEK F is a new range of lightweight, closed cell, PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) foams based on Kynar® fluoropolymer, a remarkable material that offers a unique balance of properties. Kynar PVDF fluoropolymer has excellent UV, nuclear radiation and ageing resistance, high dielectric strength and outstanding resistance to a wide range of solvents and aggressive chemicals. It is biologically inert, thermally stable across a wide temperature range (to 160°C) and has a very low order of toxicity. It is inherently flame retardant releasing very little heat and only small quantities of smoke during combustion. In ZOTEK F, these properties are combined with light weight, flexural response, buoyancy and thermal and acoustic insulation properties derived from the foaming process. Like their parent resins, ZOTEK F foams will exhibit outstanding durability and longevity. RANGE OF HIGH PERFORMANCE FLUOROPOLYMER FOAMS The new ZOTEK F HT foams offer an operational temperature limit of 160°C, an improvement of +50°C over the current ZOTEK F range. They also offer enhanced chemical and solvent resistance, combined with higher levels of structural rigidity. See our General Flyer CONVERSION All ZOTEK F grades can be manipulated using conventional foam conversion methods, such as die-cutting, water jet cutting, sawing, laminating and welding into continuous rolls. They can be also be thermoformed into complex single component structures providing benefits over multi-layer foam systems, such as weight and cost reduction. APPLICATION ZOTEK F and ZOTEK F HT are used extensively in the civil and military aerospace industry, having excellent insulation properties and meeting the stringent industry flammability requirements. Excellent flammability performance also allows ZOTEK F foams to be used as low closure force seals for electrics/electronics applications where it meets the requirements of UL94 with class V0. Being unaffected by UV radiation, ZOTEK F can be used for high specification building and construction projects with applications ranging from expansion jointing and ridge closures through to tunnel insulation. ZOTEK F has also been shown to meet the EU Single Flaming Source and Single Burning Item tests with a Euroclass B rating. The compliant nature and chemical resistance of ZOTEK F HT make it ideally suited to applications such as high and low closure force seals in chemically harsh environments or high purity are essential. ZOTEK F HT grades are recommended for general use in industrial applications such as chemical engineering, pharmaceutical and medical. The military industry has also shown great interest in ZOTEK F and ZOTEK F HT grades for packaging and thermal insulation purposes. ZOTEK F 38 HT already has NATO codification.

  • Zotek N Foam ZOTEK N (development grade):- High Performance Polyamide Foam The company introduced development grade polyamide (nylon) foam ZOTEK N that has been foamed to a density of less than 30 kg/m3. Its closed cell nature and ultra-low density make it unlike any other polyamide foam available. These results have stimulated interest in the automotive, industrial and offshore sectors where polyamide solid materials are widely used and the hydrocarbon and higher temperature performance would offer a superior alternative to other foams currently used. ZOTEK N polyamide foams will offer additional benefits of higher operating temperatures and superior hydrocarbon resistance. They are expected to fabricate into parts in much the same way as the AZOTE polyethylene foams.
  • ZOTEK N Foam ZOTEK ® N 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. In ZOTEK N, these properties are combined with low weight, flexural response, buoyancy and thermal and acoustic insulation properties derived from the foaming process. Like their parent resins, ZOTEK N foams will exhibit outstanding durability and longevity.
  • Zotek S Foam ZOTEK S:- Ultra-low Density Silicone Foam (Development grade) Silicone foams are well known for their excellent extreme temperature and exceptional FST (Flame Smoke & toxicity) performance, but existing technology limits their ability to reduce density much below 120 kg/m3 for closed cell materials and 80 kg/m3 for open cell materials. ZOTEK S foams are manufactured with a density of less than 50 kg/m3, 60% lighter than previously possible. This ultra-low density makes ZOTEK S unlike any other silicone foam available. This has already stimulated interest in aviation, aerospace, public transportation and military sectors for sealing and thermal and acoustic insulation applications
