Eurolaser has officially certified the outstanding results achieved with fifteen foams in five Sekisui Alveo product lines.
As HVAC system efficiency requirements have strengthened, manufacturers are increasingly turning to rigid polyurethane foam systems that outperform traditional fiberglass insulation.
EPS is a widely used, lightweight foam packaging material that is made of 98% air and 2% polystyrene, and is 100% recyclable, leading some to describe it as “engineered air”. Whatever you call it, EPS is one of the lightest, most versatile and most reliable protective packaging materials that exists.
As part of the USA’s Operation Warp Speed (OWS) initiative to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, Texas, USA-based InsulFab has harnessed the unique properties of ZOTEK® F high-performance foam. Produced by Zotefoams (www.zotefoams.com) – a pioneer in the manufacture of cellular materials – ZOTEK F is a closed cell, crosslinked fluoropolymer foam that InsulFab has selected for the production of high-quality packaging trays for the secure transportation of glass vials containing ultra-cold chain (requiring storage and transportation at -70°C) vaccine.
The new FoamPartner Converting Center GmbH complements the existing expertise of the FoamPartner Group to provide a vertically integrated value chain from foam production to customized precision components.
The Urban Infrastructure and Environmental Products Company of SEKISUI CHEMICAL CO., LTD. (hereinafter ”SEKISUI”) has announced its decision to open a production plant in the Netherlands for the manufacture of synthetic wood for railway sleepers made from long glass-fiber-reinforced foamed urethane (FFU). This will expand its production capacity for FFU railway sleepers 1.8 times larger than now as well as significantly reduce delivery periods to Europe by eliminating transportation from Japan. The construction of the plant in Roermond will begin in 2021; the production itself will start in Q1/2023.
