In addition to the standard types of PVC foam manufactured at Foam Seal, there are several custom configurations offered. Among these are Backstripping, Custom Liners, and Custom Supported/Unsupported Adhesives.
Backstripping manufactures the Foam Seal Industrial PVC Foam with the adhesive side exposed. The length is determined with the foam used in this manner. When the use requires the adhesive side to be against the paper, the product has to be reverse wrapped so the uncoated foam is exposed. This causes a loss of yield in length, because the configuration of the foam is changed due to the compression of the foam onto a shorter length of liner. The loss will be equal to the outer circumference of the material.
Foam-Seal can custom coat our PVC foam with a variety of application specific adhesives. In addition to direct coating Foam-Seal can add supported or unsupported adhesive to PVC foam.
Foam-Seal can add special liners to PVC for any application or process .
Foam Fix is a process that produces single sided adhesive (Foam Fix I) or an optional double-sided adhesive (Foam Fix II) foam products without a subsequent converting operation. Any of our PVC foams can be cast onto the Foam-Fix® substrate subject to minimum runs and some gauge restrictions.
Foam properties, log sizes, slit widths and minimums are dependent on which type of PVC foam is used.
