Plastazote Foam [material]

This kind of material are often been seen on diabetic shoe inserts.

A wide range of polymer combinations is available to give increased stiffness, improved temperature resistance and improved mouldability. Plastazote® foams are engineered to offer superior performance and lighter weight. The absence of any chemical agents in the foam and a consistency of cell structure and density allows Zotefoams to offer the world’s lightest cross-linked foams.

Plastazote® foams are available in:

  • a range of densities from 15kg/m3 to 115kg/m3
  • a variety of attractive colours
  • Metallocene grades for easier thermo-compression behaviour
  • special grades with increased flame-retarding properties, and/or conductive or static-dissipative characteristics

Plastazote® foams are used in a variety of industries including:

  • packaging
  • automotive (thermoformed parts)
  • aerospace
  • electronics
  • healthcare thanks to their inert qualities
  • construction
  • sport (protective padding)
  • marine where buoyancy is crucial
  • industrial (seals and gaskets)
