Zotefoams Inc. to exhibit its pure performance polyolefin foam range at Foam Expo North America 2019

AZOTE® polyolefin foams will take centre stage at this year’s Foam Expo North America in Novi, Michigan (26th – 28th March 2019), highlighting distinctive properties and the isotropic nature that facilitate the production of high-quality finished products for automotive, aviation and healthcare applications.

AZOTE foams are a range of uniformly dense foam sheets with a consistent cell structure, constructed from common polymers using Zotefoams’ unique nitrogen expansion process. Visitors to booth 1210 will have the opportunity to discover the individual characteristics of the AZOTE foam range, each formulated to satisfy a specific range of applications.

Manufactured by Zotefoams, the world’s largest producer of lightweight, cross-linked polyolefin block foams, the AZOTE foam range consists of three well-known high-quality product brands; Plastazote®, Evazote® and Supazote®. They are characterised by controlled cell size and structure, outstanding purity, exceptional physical performance and extremely low odour. They are available in conductive, static dissipative and flame-retardant grades for specialty applications.

Originally developed in 1962 based on polyethylene plastic, the material was the first of its kind setting new standards in the performance of expanded materials. AZOTE polyolefin foams have since experienced strong organic growth and still represent the largest portion of Zotefoams’ Group revenue. Volumes are set to increase still further with the recent announcement of additional capacity in the USA.

Zotefoams Group CEO, David Stirling, says, “With the initial phase of the capacity expansion at our Kentucky, USA, site commissioned last year, and the second phase to come onstream later this year, Foam Expo offers a breadth of opportunity with both new and existing customers as we demonstrate our commitment to our core AZOTE® business, developing new products and working on fundamental innovation.”
