The regular cell size of Azote foams makes them highly energy absorbent... ideal materials for protective packaging. They are inert, lightweight, UV stable, flexible, tough and resilient and exhibit outstanding resistance to chemicals and water. They are highly pure, will not cause corrosion or staining and are safe to use for the transit and archival storage of antiquities and works of art.
Zotefoams also provides a comprehensive PC based ‘cushion packaging program’. Entering basic details of ‘drop height’, ‘fragility’, and ‘weight’ will simultaneously produce foam thickness and area requirements of the Plastazote foam grades for evaluation.
Returnable Transit Packaging
Azote foams play an important role in the global endeavor to reduce packaging waste, by providing a true multi-trip solution for transit packaging, both as case inserts and dunnage. The high energy absorbent nature of Azote foams means that less thickness is needed for protection... smaller packs means less storage space requirement and better transport volume utilization.
Zotefoams manufactures foams that meet or exceed the following military requirements
- Foam for general purpose packaging.
- High density foam for general purpose packaging.
- Foam for explosive compatible packaging.
Static dissipative and conductive foams also find many applications in the military sector.
Critical electronics devices, assemblies and equipment are known to be susceptible to "static zap". To overcome this potential problem, Zotefoams produces permanently static dissipative, protective foams. These foams foam incorporate a non-corrosive, totally encapsulated conductive component in their make-up that provides bulk conduction of static without the need for atmospheric moisture, making it non-reliant on environmental conditions.
Plastazote is the preferred choice for conservation packaging of artifacts, antiquities and works of art around the world. Azote foams use only Nitrogen for expansion, in a process that creates unparalleled purity, isotropic consistency and closed cell protection. Because of this, there are no chemical residues capable of causing staining and unpleasant odors and no deleterious gases are present to seep out, no matter how long a piece may be archived.
Plastazote has set the European conservation standard for decades due to its impact absorption, ease of fabrication, attractive appearance, and purity.
