Volara® Type & Characteristics

TYPE A: A general purpose LDPE foam with excellent chemical and physical resistance. Often used in construction gap filler, industrial gaskets, custom packaging and flooring underlay. Type A is approved for food contact and a great choice for bottle cap liners. For applications that require FR, a flame retardant can be added.

TYPE AS: Commonly used in automotive applications, this foam has a smooth surface, fine cell structure and superior heat stability with thermoforming capabilities. For applications that need to pass FMVSS 302, consider adding flame retardant.

TYPE AZ: Used in flooring underlayment as a stearate-free option. This foam does not contain animal derivatives and provides enhanced adhesion properties making it ideal for lamination to various substrates.

TYPE EA: A precursor to VolaraBLOCK® foam. Much like Type A grade, this foam has a uniform cell structure but it is formulated to foam thicker than our typical grades.

TYPE EO: Flexible and soft to the touch, this closed-cell EVA copolymer based material has excellent thermal insulation and is a good candidate for adhesive coating applications. The conformability and softness, combined with the strength and toughness of a cross- linked EVA copolymer, has made this one of the most recognized double sided foam tape substrates in North America.

TYPE G: The softest, most flexible and conformable foam offered by SEKISUI Voltek. When compared to other Volara® foam with similar density, this is one of the toughest foams.

TYPE HPT/HPX: A type of precision foam that represents the highest level of foam processing capabilities. It provides unmatched quality with superior thickness and density control, product uniformity and product performance.

TYPE LHR: Specifically designed for aviation interior applications. It meets the FAA standards of heat release, smoke density, vertical burn and toxicity.

TYPE LM: Made of polypropylene, it has superior thermal stability and increased hardness.

TYPE LSO: Rigid polypropylene foam with improved thermal stability and low VOC for flooring underlayment in addition to component thermoforming applications.

TYPE TS: Specially formulated for the industrial tape and gasket markets, it provides the conformability, compression strength and toughness required to meet the demands of the mounting and assembly tape industries.

TYPE VS: Polypropylene foam suitable for vacuum forming processes and designed to have a smooth surface for automotive interior applications, such as door and instrument panels.

TYPE VSO: Designed for vacuum forming applications with excellent thermal stability. Also provides superior insulation properties, low vapor/moisture permeability and excellent acoustic absorption in various flooring underlayment applications.

TYPE VSX: Designed for female vacuum forming applications, excellent deep draw capabilities and superior thermal stability.
