Ramfoam is one of the world's principle converters of Plastazote & Evazote from Zotefoams plc, the worlds leading manufacturer of closed cell cross linked polyethylene and eva block foams.
Zotefoams with their unique 3 stage nitrogen expansion manufacturing process offer foams with high purity, consistent density, controlled cell size and very low odour. These family of foams out perform other grades of foam manufactured from the same polymers and density. There are no chemical residues or remnants of blowing agents that potentially cause corrosion, unpleasant odours or impairment of physical performance. Vibrant colours and various cell size make these aesthetically appealing foams. Non toxic, impact absorbing, lightweight, firm and rigid foams add to the impressive properties exhibited. Whilst LDPE is by far and away the largest polymer used, HDPE, EVA, Metallocene based polymers compliment the range. densities range from 15kgs/m3- 115kgs/m3. Additives to the process allow grades to have flammability and conductive or static dissipative properties.
The unique manufacturing process permits new polymers to be foamed. PVDF, Polyamide (nylon 6 & 66) and Pebax are all relatively new polymers that are being expanded into foam blocks under the trade names of Zotek F, Zotek N and Pebaxfoam. Zotek F (PVDF) is an inherently flame retardant foam which releases very little heat and only small amounts of smoke during combustion. It exhibits high temperature and high chemical resistance. Zotek N (Polyamide) is the worlds first nylon foam with temperature resistance in excess of 200C. excellent resistance to hydrocarbons-oils, greases, alcohols and ketones. Pebaxfoam is a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) foam that is closed cell and lightweight. It's outstanding mechanical properties offer exceptional impact absorbing properties.
Closed cell un cross linked polyethylene foams are 100% recyclable and offer excellent value for all your packaging requirements. When EPS is unsuitable, Un cross linked PE foams prove their worth. Our core grades are Ethafoam & Stratocell, whilst other manufacturers grades are readily available.
Ethafoam is a high performance extruded un laminated plank, premium brand product. Recognised the world over in flightcase hardware, military, electronic, automotive packaging, they range in density from 25kgs/m3- 144kgs/m3 density. Anti static and flame retardant variants are available in certain densities, with black and white colours predominating.
Stratocell is a cost effective, quality multi laminate extruded sheet product available in densities from 25kgs/m3- 65kgs/m3. Anti static pink variants and a high density thin foam laminate complete the rage of current products available.
Packaging solutions can be aided with our design service and in certain circumstances testing of multiple drop conditions. Clever design permits these foams to compete with many conventional foams- corrugated fitments, Polyurethane foams, Expanded Polystyrene to offer a superior packaging design.
Sitting midway in our range of products are the Chemically blown blocks and rolls of PE foam. We procur these from a variety of global manufacturers- Sekisui Alveo, Palziv & O.K. Company, to name but a few. Our block foam range in density from 25kgs/m3- 250kgs/m3, available in a wide vibrant range of colours. They exhibit a fine uniform closed cell structure that offers an attractive and pleasant texture appearance. They are inert and non toxic whilst being CFC & HCFC free.
Roll, sheets and multi layer laminated blocks manufactured from physically cross linked closed cell PE foam exhibit all the properties and attributes of the above with the exception of being slightly coarser in cell structure. Physically irradiated closed cell cross linked foam available in densities ranging from 25kgs/m3- 330kgs/m3 and thicknesses as low as 0.2mm makes these grades of foam ideal for tape applications.
Our extensive range of Polyurethane open cell foams compliment our closed cell product range. These being the least expensive, whilst offering suitable integrity for the packaging of fragile items. Various densities, colours and hardness of foams are available combined with the additional processing capability of supplying convoluted (eggbox) sheets, pads or die cuts.
