Thin polyolefin foams have been made for decades for decorative ribbons, wire wrap, and sleeve-type labels. These early foamed films are mature products now in relatively flat markets. "Growth is coming from new products," says Johann Huber, managing director of Lenzing Plastics GmbH, a maker of foamed polypropylene ribbon in Lenzing, Austria. The purpose of this paper is to review the most significant developments of the last 10 years in the field of crosslinked polyolefin foams. The methods to produce the foams, the relationships between structure and properties, and the main applications of these materials are briefly by:
Zotefoams Plc manufactures a range of closed-cell cross-linked polyolefin foams for global use in sports, construction, marine, automation, medical equipment and aerospace. The headquarters are in Croydon, London, with a US subsidiary in Good is the current chairman, David Stirling is managing director, and Gary McGrath is finance arters: London, England. The South Texas Section of the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE), in partnership with the Polymer Materials and Additives (PMAD), the Thermoplastic Materials and Foams (TPM&F) Divisions of SPE, is sponsoring the upcoming International Conference on Polyolefins to be held Febru through Febru at the Hilton Houston North Hotel, .
Cellular polyolefin foams furnished under this specification shall be manufactured from any resin or blend of resins that are members of the polyolefin family together with added compounding materials. Unless otherwise specified, the color of cellular polyolefin foams shall be natural. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. The AST treatment of TROCELLEN polyolefin foams offers a long-term stable modification of the foam’s surface properties. Chemically active substances are applied to the polymer surface through a high voltage discharge field. The use of water as only solvent guarantees an environmentally friendly and secure process.

Radiation cross-linked polyolefin foams can be shaped by compression molding alone or in combination with other foams of different color and density, fabrics, films, foils, non-wovens, solid plastics, and cellulosics [64c].
By combining the cross-linked foams with other materials in whatever way, a wide variety of products with desired. Polyolefin sheets or foams are used in a wide variety of packaging applications, sometimes in direct contact with food.
 Polyolefin elastomer POE is used as a main ingredient in the molded flexible foam technology such as in the fabrication of self skinned footwear (for example, Crocs shoes), seat cushions, arm rests, spa pillows, etc.
Polyolefin Foams are a relatively recent development compared to the other types of foam. The Polyolefin Polyolefin Foams book processes were developed in the s and s. This Review starts with a brief history of the subject and then reports on the current situation regarding Polyolefin Foams.
Polyolefin foams offer flexibility, cushioning, compression set, toughness, chemical and abrasion resistance, and electrical and thermal insulation properties. The resiliency of this product gives excellent energy absorption, a requirement in most cushion packaging, athletic pads, floatation devices, and occupant safety applications/5(23).
Polymer Foams are used in many different types of applications and it is hard to find an area where they are not utilised. Polyolefin Foams are a relatively recent development compared to the other types of foam.
The Polyolefin foam processes were developed in the s and s. This Review starts with a brief history of the subject and then reports on the current situation. A pioneer in the development of cross-linked polyethylene and EVA block foams, Zotefoams has expanded its capabilities to include foams based on advanced engineering polymers.
Zotek is the brand name for fluoropolymers, polyamides and advanced engineering polymers based foams. Azote is the group brand for polyolefin foams.
In the AZOTE® Polyolefin Foams business the additional capacity from the Kentucky facility will allow the company to deliver against a strong order book Author: Veikko Valli.
Book Description. Polymers are among the major hallmarks of 20th-century science, and the explosive outgrowth and tremendous importance of polymeric foams is a testament to their amazing versatility and unique properties.
The consumption in /96 all over the world was more than tonnes, including almost tonnes of expandable polyolefin beads. Polyolefin foams are expected to continue growing at a faster rate than other plastic foams.
A major part of the polyolefin foams is based on polyethlyene (PE) and its copolymers. Although polyolefin foams are relatively recent additions to the range of polymeric foam materials, having been first marketed in the early sixties, they have found a use in almost every industry. Areas of application include packaging, sports and leisure, toys, insulation, automotive, military, aircraft, buoyancy, cushioning and others.
Heat Transfer in Polyolefin Foams. no other book is available with this breadth making this a plastics engineer's first choice for a single volume Handbook * Polymer foams are ubiquitous in.
The book concludes with chapters on recent developments in composite and biodegradable foams that illustrate how to tailor processing to meet application needs.
Illuminating the role of polymeric foams in the modern materials landscape, Polymeric Foams: Science and Technology is the perfect guide for developing innovative materials that achieve. This book imparts a sound knowledge of flexible and viscoelastic polyurethane foams from their chemistry to calculations and formulating methodology for quality production.
The author presents very valuable detailed information on foam manufacturing based on more than 40 years hands-on experience in the local and international situations/5(3). Closed-cell foams including polyethylene and polypropylene are lightweight and tough, yet provide excellent protection and insulation properties.

Zotefoams produces an unparalleled range of closed cell, crosslinked, polyolefin foams using a unique, environmentally friendly, high-pressure nitrogen gas solution process.
The crosslinked polyolefin foams are so safe they can be used to protect delicate high value items such as antiques and works of art. Many packaging solutions can often be perceived to be wasteful.
Zotefoams however goes a long way to help reduce packaging wastage. Azote foams benefit from excellent impact resistance and therefore require less. Polymer foams have wide application area due to their light weight, resistance to impact, high thermal insulation, and damping properties.
Automotive, packing industry, electronic, aerospace, building construction, bedding, and medical applications are some of the fields that polymer foams have been used. However, depending on their cell structure—open or closed cell—polymer Author: Mihrigul Altan.
