40 years’ experience with flame lamination
In the flame lamination process, a substrate (primarily polyurethane foam) is passed through a controlled flame. This transforms the surface of the foam into a molten state. Then, using controlled tension and pressure (nip point), the molten foam is joined with another substrate or textile.
Using this process, flexible foams can be effectively bonded to a variety of other substrates, including fabrics, films, and papers.
The full surface bond that the Flame Lamination process creates is superior in strength, stability and appearance to other bonding processes. This is particularly the case when two or more materials are stacked in multiple layers.
Bi-Lamination & Tri-Lamination
Our Flame Lamination capabilities include both bi-lamination and tri-lamination processes.
These processes add a Cerex or Denier backing to provide greater stability to the textile. Making the textile more stable allows it to better hold the needle thread during final fabrication.
- Polyurethanes to Fabric
- Polyurethanes to Vinyl
- Polyethylene to Foam to Foam to build up thickness
- Polyethylene to foam to foam
- Geonet to Geotextiles
Flame Lamination applications
By using flame lamination, the bonding process becomes more efficient and cost effective as the expense and complexity of glue application is removed from the bonding process.
Flame lamination is suitable in the manufacture of:
- Sound Attenuation
- Sports and Gymnastics
- Office Partitioning
- Orthopaedic Braces
