An excellent resource for fabricators and converters, the guide aids in adhesive selection for foam bonding applications – from gaskets, seals and gap filling to thermal and acoustical insulation, vibration dampening, filtration, dunnage, cushioning and everything in between.
To generate the guide, Mactac partnered with several key foam manufacturers to closely evaluate core grades of foam commonly used in combination with pressure-sensitive adhesives. Foam manufacturer partners included K-Flex, Armacell, Monarch, Rogers, Palziv, Zotefoam, and W.T. Burnett.
The guide suggests adhesive-foam pairings as well as adhesion recommendations for general foam chemistries. Featured Mactac adhesives include high-performance and versatile rubber adhesives, cold temperature and low-VOC adhesives, and aggressive, high-performance and modified acrylic adhesives.
