Flame Laminating Services
Flame lamination is an effective method for bonding flexible foams and certain non-wovens to a variety of other substrates, such as fabrics, films and papers. It is used to produce laminates by bonding foam/fabric or foam/film by passing the foam over an open flame. Exposure to the flame creates a thin layer of molten polymer on the foam surface, which is then brought into contact with the secondary layer under pressure to develop a bond between the two surfaces. U.S. Laminating Corp. has been an expert in this industry for decades. We are able to provide flame laminating services to customers nationwide, as well as internationally. Our ability to provide customers with the best products and materials on the internet is unparalleled in our industry and we aim to meet all of your requirements and specifications.
Flame Laminating Process
- The process of flame laminating involves passing a substrate through a controlled flame changing the surface of the foam to a molten state.
- This process occurs over an open flame, which then creates a thin, tacky layer of melted polymer on the foam surface.
- Another substrate is then brought into direct contact with the molten foam under controlled tension and pressure.
- As the molten foam rapidly cools, a cohesive bond is formed at the interface between the foam and textile.
Using the process of flame lamination leads to some benefits and there are many factors that control the amount of bond strength achieved between the foam and the substrate. This includes the speed and distance at which the foam passes through the controlled flame. No adhesives are needed, which is one of the biggest advantages with flame lamination. This saves you money, as well as eliminates any risk of adhesives seeping in and causing a bond failure, allowing you to create a more durable product and it is easier to recycle than other laminated materials.
A Variety of Uses
From car seats to foot insoles, U.S. Laminating Corp is able to create these materials through flame lamination. Automotive soft trim interior materials such as automotive headliner, seating, and door panel applications are largely derived from composite materials flame laminated. Orthopedic braces, sound attenuation materials, footwear components, and many other composite materials are the result of the flame laminating process. This flexibility in applications and uses makes it a great material for businesses across the country.
