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


  • 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
