Foamed materials are just as diverse as packaging contents. Packaging profiles may need to be especially light, extra hard, ultra-soft or particularly pliable. NMC has the necessary know-how when it comes to open-cell and closed-cell foams. The density, for example, might range from 18 to 600 kg/m3. Thanks to the various technical possibilities, we most definitely have the technology to turn your ideas into reality.
Coextrusion makes it possible to use two machines at the same time to produce one product made of two different foams with different properties. Foams and other materials, such as foils and films, can also be coextruded with different coloured coatings. The possibilities are virtually limitless.
Lamination enables the bonding of foam with a wide and diverse range of materials to design custom-fit solutions for specific products. We also use extrusion techniques to increase the resilience and provide lasting protection. Furthermore, we have mastered the process of joining several foam layers together to a required thickness or connecting foam profiles to get different widths.
Additives and copolymers affect levels of compressive deformation, tear strength, ultimate elongation,
UV-resistance, fire behaviour, surface hardness, visual appearance and other technological characteristics of a product. Our range also features more than 15 standard colours for non cross-linked and cross-linked foams. Other colours can be supplied on request.
The application of adhesives on profiles is just one of the finishing processes we use to enhance products to meet customer requirements. We apply protective foams on lacquer which leave no residues after use. We also use permanent adhesive on request. Numerous patents attest the quality of our products.
If required, we can produce customised profiles with special serrations, such as NOMAPACK® U Stretch and
NOMAPACK® Multishape. A clever cutting technique makes the material very flexible and workable – ideal for your production or transportation needs. Indeed, objects of various sizes can be packaged with just one single profile.
