Flame lamination (or foam-back) laminate together all types of soft materials by fusion of a polyurethane or polyethylene foam.
The material ( fabrics or assimilated ) to laminate is then set on the foam in fusion by calendering so as to obtain a laminate product of two materials or more.
 

Advantages

  • Economical : fast and with no glue addition
  • Soft materials
  • Easy and quick to implement

Powder lamination enables to assemble together all types of materials by calendering. The melt powder is sieved according to a determined weight, onto the material to glue. A time through a tunnel of stoking ( fire chamber ) transforms the powder into glue. Once out of the chamber, a cooled calender enables :

  • either the polishing to obtain a thermo-adhesive
  • or the application of a lining to form a laminate product

Advantages

  • Assembling of materials without foam
  • Gives a 'hand' to the laminate product
  • Helps to assemble rolls, sheets and skins...
  • Thermo-adhesive enables the final users to counterstick as they like
  • Great variety of powders for all kinds of applications

Glue lamination helps to associate 2 various materials ( foam, fabrics, leather, etc…) by putting a layer of glue on the first medium, then through an oven to extract humidity from the glue and finally by calendering with the second medium.

Advantages

  • Gives flexibility to the laminate product
  • Strenghtens cohesion
  • Great variety of glues according to the application
  • Enables assembling rolls, sheets and skins...

Self adhesive consists in putting on a various material an adhesive glue protected by a medium. The glue, with an water-based glue, is set on a silicone medium ( paper, PE or PP film, etc…) before going through an oven to extract humidity from the glue. This glued medium is then calendered with the selected material to form an adhesived laminate product.

Advantages

  • We can produce on rolls, sheets etc
  • Enables the users to stick as they like
  • Easy to implement

Thermocompression means forming a thermoplastic material by compression, in two or three- dimensions in a mold. The materials which are used are mainly foams, polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP) and EVA, alone or laminated product with fabrics or assimilated products. The variety of materials is wide but depends on constraints of the distortion during molding.

Phase 1 : the material is heated in an oven
Phase 2 : the material is compressed and the shape is set in a cooled mold
Phase 3 : the obtained piece is cut. This step can be integrated during compression

Assets

  • Process which helps to form materials of any hardness and thickness (contrary to thermoforming)
  • Moderate cost of the equipment (contrary to injection)
  • Easy implementation which helps the production of very short series
  • Finished or semi-finished product

Thermowelding means welding a laminate product of foam and fabrics by compression in two-dimensions on a welding tool. The shape is created by fusion of cells in contact with the tool which was heated beforehand. Then we obtain an embossed design formed by total crushing in the thickness of the laminate product. This is how the piece is made and cut during compression.
Materials which are used are mainly polyurethane polyester foams counterglued with various fabrics simple or double face.

Assets

  • Enables the use of an important thickness
  • Easy implementation which enables the production of very short series
  • Finished or semi-finished product

High Frequency welding enables to weld in relief, according to the design, the complexes of coated fabrics (PVC, PU)counterglued or not.
This action is made through the application HF on the width of a roller with regular spaces.

Assets

  • Various designs with low investment
  • Production of small quantities
  • Avoids taking pieces to sewing, without drilling the material

Cutting is made on raw materials or on laminated products, in sheets or rolls, by different techniques :

  • Cut-and-dried : enables to cut determined shapes in short series, with a low investment on equipment
  • Automated cut on table : enables to cut with an automated robot "in mattress" medium or large series, without investing on equipment

We operate in all fields of industry. For this reason, we can propose really various materials, in stock or on special orders.
