Continuous Line Lamination Rigid Polyurethane Insulating Foam

Designed for the manufacture of insulated metal panels produced by continuous lamination, Conti-Foam® is ideal for continuous double belt lamination applications such as architectural panels, garage doors and other rigid-faced products.

Conti-Foam from FSI provides:

  • Superior thermal performance
  • Robust processing characteristics resulting in panels with uniform surface profiles
  • High performance over a lifetime of heavy use

Superior formulation for a Wide Range of Products

Why Conti-Foam?

Conti-Foam rigid pour-in-place foam is specifically formulated for continuous double-belt lamination manufacturing across a range of panel thicknesses.

Rigid polyurethane has the lowest thermal conductivity of all foam insulating materials and is ideal for use in metal composites. Conti-Foam provides superior adhesion, bonding to the panel skins as it cures to provide greater dimensional stability and thermal performance compared to adhered boardstock.

Excellent flowability and consistent density distribution of Conti-Foam systems from FSI leads to more consistent, defect-free manufacturing. Robust processing capabilities enable manufacturers to easily change over to Conti-Foam for a wide variety of profiles while improving overall cycle time.

Key Advantages

  • Zero-GWP blowing agents
  • Superior Flowability
  • Uniform density distribution
  • Rapid demold times
  • Strong adhesion
  • Supports different line speeds
  • Excellent dimensional stability

Sustainable Foam Systems

Conti-Foam® systems are made with our patented Ecomate® blowing agent, a zero-GWP, non-VOC blowing agent that offers a proven alternative to HFCs, HFOs and HCFOs and complies with all international environmental regulations.

Foam systems blown with Ecomate® technology offer easy transition from HFC systems compared to other fourth-generation blowing agents. No permits or explosion proofing is required before transitioning to Ecomate®-blown foam products.

Introduced in 2002, Ecomate® is the longest commercially available sustainable, zero-GWP, compliant blowing agent on the market.

Benefits

  • Zero Global Warming
  • Zero Ozone Depletion
  • VOC Exempt
  • EPA / SNAP Compliant
  • Low Emissive Foams
  • Montreal Protocol Compliant
  • Kyoto Protocol Compliant
  • Kigali Amendment Compliant

Unmatched Regulatory Compliance

Because it is environmentally benign, Ecomate complies with all current — and most likely all future — regulations pertaining to foam blowing agents. As additional HFCs and other harmful materials are phased out, Ecomate will continue to be the reliable and affordable solution for foam blowing applications. Current regulatory compliance includes:

  • U.S EPA SNAP Program
  • Montreal Protocol
  • Kyoto Protocol
  • Kyoto ROHS Protocol (Restriction of Hazardous Substances)
  • WEEE Directed (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment)
  • GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe)
  • REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization)
  • EPA SNAP Approved
