Foam: A simple substrate poses difficult challenges
Foam is one of the most challenging substrates employed in industrial manufacturing today. Sensitive by nature due to its low surface energy, foam bonding requires a complex understanding of the relationships between substrate type, melting point and open time.
From furniture cushioning to protective packaging to acoustic paneling, foam is a foundational substrate used specifically for its unique structural integrity. Foam is found in many different materials, from polyethylene to melamine to polyurethane, not all foam applications are made equal, consequently making the process for finding the proper foam adhesive a challenging one.
