ZOTEK® N

High performance closed cell, cross-linked Nylon foam based on Polyamide 6.

ZOTEK® N combines all the recognised benefits of nylon with the advantages of a foam.

Excellent temperature performance (up to 205◦C/ 401◦F)

Excellent hydrocarbon, alcohol and ketones resistance

Can be easily thermoformed into complex single components structures providing weight and cost reduction

Low weight, buoyancy and thermal and acoustic insulation

Best in class durability and longevity

The following grades are available:

ZOTEK® N foams are commonly used for the following application areas:

Hot Temperature Processing Aids (Click to find more info)

  • Paint/powder coating masking material 
  • Manufacturing processing support for metals, plastics and composite panels.
  • Dimensionally stable insulation material which can be inserted pre-high temperature process 
  • In process hot material handling aid  (Click here to download case study)

High Temperature Insulation

  • Temperature resistant seals & gaskets
  • Thermal insulation and heat shields
  • Air conditioning seals
  • Domestic appliances (e.g. coffee machine insulation jacket)
  • Battery cover insulation

Personal Protection

  • Padded athletic clothing
  • Hard body armor padding

Transportation

  • Transmission seals (resistant to transmission fluids)
  • Agricultural engine hood cover
  • Energy absorbing composite panels and semi-structural parts (e.g. in the engine compartment)
  • Core material in thermoplastic composites where it will allow higher temperatures to be used during processing thus reducing cycle times and increasing capacity
