Custom engineered to fit unique applications.
Porelon pioneered the process of extruding salt leached thermoplastic foams. We hold numerous patents related to our marking foams and use several proprietary processes to extrude innovative foam products that no other company can produce.
With complete control over factors such as pore size, density and durometer, Porelon foams are highly adaptable. Industries as diverse as financial, construction, automotive and retail rely on Porelon salt-leached foam products for everything from marking to material handling rollers.
Choose From Four Foam Products
Accuflo open cell polyurethane foams can be produced in an almost infinite variety of shapes, forms and densities, and can be impregnated with various types of inks or other kinds of fluids. Accuflo has also been successfully used for “dry” or non-inking applications such as paper handling.
For applications requiring metered fluid releases, Microfoam’s microporous polyurethane uses both capillary and centrifugal action. Pore size, density, fluid composition and viscosity, transfer pressure and other factors are maximized to achieve ideal release rates for proper coverage, clarity and print life for each specific application. Oils (including silicones) and oil-based inks are best suited for compatibility with Microfoam’s porous materials.
Microporous Thermoplastic Foams, or “MT” for short, are a family of extruded salt-leached foams using polymers that include polyethylene, polypropylene/polyolefin copolymers and EVA. What sets MT apart from other foams and even from other salt-leached products, is the unique and patented technology developed by Porelon chemists that incorporates an additional component that acts as a flow enhancer. Smoothing and coating the internal pore structure and significantly decreasing the friction and flow resistance of incorporating fluids into and delivering fluids out of the structure.
Repetitive, custom printing solutions are where our specialty foam rolls really shine. Document processing and check endorsing are just a few of our success stories.
