We have the highest capacity cutting equipment in the industry with a width of 86″. Our recent model F&K Loop cutters are capable of cutting rolls the widths and lengths that are exactly right for your equipment, applications and client requirements. Rolls of greater length translate into lower costs, faster speeds and better sales per hour of operation. The F&K Loop cutters also allow us to turn sheets into continuous rolls by welding together material with heat or glue. Also, our dividing tools are fitted with laser measuring sensors to guarantee that production equipment has real-time data during each run and maintains tolerance levels constant.
Cost advantages of longer rolls:
- Lower transportation costs
- Less handling time
- Fewer roll changes during lamination
- Fewer reel changes during longitudinal cut and die cutting
- Faster performance
- Improvement in service time and higher client retention
Discover our foams
Cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) or crosslink is a high density closed-foam cell characterized by its compact structure and resistance to water which allows the material to be produced, molded or thermoformed in many ways through compression.
We have a wide variety of XLPE blocks of densities that go from 1.3 lb / ft3 to 15 lb. / ft3. They are available in carbon and grey.
XLPE CHEMICALLY CROSS- LINKED ROLLS
The chemically cross-linked polyethylene (XE) rolls are made of a polyethylene foam that expands in an oven after being extruded with the help of a chemical foaming agent (CFA). The XE roll has a larger cellular structure and a slightly thicker surface in comparison with the irradiated cross-linked polyethylene (XI)
XLPE IRRADIATED SERIES ROLLS
Our rolls of irradiated cross-linked polyethylene (XI) are reticulated through irradiation. With this method the foam acquires a flat surface, uniform density and an even cellular structure with superior physical properties.
It consists of a solution of versatile and lasting foam, as it is resistant to the majority of chemical products and has a low water absorption rate
ZOTEFOAMS AZOTE SERIES
Worldwide Foam is proud to announce an agreement with Zotefoams to become its first and only Platinum Distributor in North America. Zotefoams is the world’s leading manufacturer of crosslinked polyethylene block foams. This association allows WF to offer products low in VOC and free of chemicals and that are readily available on the market.
Worldwide Foam carries a wide offering of elastomeric materials to support complex applications.
Our list of foam products for Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) is one of the most diverse in the industry attested to by the number of markets served by our manufacturing customers in North America. The materials we have in storage include neoprene, PVC, nitrile and EPDM.
Worldwide Foam is the preferred distributor of Sealed Air extruded polyethylene (PE) planks.
In Mexico we currently carry two products in the Sealed Air PE category: ETHAFOAM® and STRATOCELL®.
ETHAFOAM® is a high performance extruded closed cell polyethylene foam. STRATOCELL® is a thermolaminated polyethylene board that delivers high performance strong protection to packaging and non-packaging applications.
PRESSURE SENSITIVE ADHESIVES (PSA)
We offer a wide array of pressure sensitive adhesives products (PSA) which adapt to various applications. We can laminate PSA in foam sheets and rolls or we can supply only the adhesive, as the customer requires.
PLASTIC CORRUGATED SHEET
We now carry corrugated plastic sheets in 2, 3, 4 ,5 ,6, and 10mm x 48”x96” C. Blue and black are standard across the board. The 4mm is also available in white.
