High-Performance Foam

August 1, 2002
VOLTEK, DIV. OF SEKISUI AMERICA CORP.

This company has introduced a line of high-performance, radiation-crosslinked polyolefin foams for tape and converting applications. The Volara HPT foams rely on advanced extrusion, crosslinking and foaming processes to achieve tight gauge and density control. At 0.012 inches, this is the thinnest crosslinked foam manufactured in North America. The extreme toughness of these foams makes them ideal for low-profile mounting applications. Precise thickness control means that roll lengths of 4,500 feet can be produced without gauge banding. This results in fewer roll changes for converters and a better match to release-liner roll lengths. Circle No. 105
