Zotefoams introduces AZOTE® Adapt LZ45 Matt Black: The new black

Zotefoams, a world leader in cellular material technology, has unveiled its latest grade of foam LZ45 Matt Black from its ground-breaking AZOTE® Adapt range, designed to improve efficiencies of luxury packaging applications.

AZOTE Adapt is a range of crosslinked polyethylene foams with fine cell structure, excellent consistency and low odour, developed using autoclaves with the latest blowing agent technology in a proprietary process.

Engineered to offer superior performance, AZOTE Adapt’s latest addition LZ45 Matt Black is a durable, resilient, lightweight foam delivering consistency of density across the foam sheet, maximising yield and, therefore, improving efficiency and reducing waste. It has low VOC with minimal chemical residues, making it the ideal choice when in contact with high value items, and its purity and smooth matt black finish guarantees the aesthetic appeal, optimum presentation and ultimate product protection required for luxury goods. 

As the world’s largest manufacturer of lightweight cross-linked block foams, Zotefoams has continued to evolve manufacture of its AZOTE® foam ranges based on physical expansion of pure nitrogen while acknowledging the growing market of chemically expanded foams. With concerns growing about residual VOCs from the chemical blowing process and stricter emissions standards, Zotefoams has recognised a clear opportunity to improve on that process with AZOTE Adapt having been developed specifically to deliver this service.

Zotefoams Group CEO, David Stirling, comments, “We are excited about the opportunities AZOTE Adapt’s new grade LZ45 Matt Black will bring, the whole range has been specifically developed to deliver the service, block size and cell-structure demanded by our customers. Packaging is a key market for us, and we are delighted we are able to offer this new grade which meets the performance, efficiency and aesthetic requirements for luxury packaging.”
