Foam Lamination

What is foam lamination?

This is basically a commercial-grade foam laminated onto customer-supplied fabric.

Foam Lamination Process

Foam lamination is a process by which we provide our customers with the option to laminate foam with fabric (or film). Our foam lamination process uses the (tried & tested) flame lamination method, which bonds the foam & fabric/film by passing the foam over an open flame. This results in the creation of a thin layer of hot polymer which is then used as an adhesive to bond the foam to fabric/film. The resulting bonding between the foam and fabric/film is very strong and durable.

Uses of foam backing

Foam lamination helps change the acoustics of a room and encourages performance of the fabric as a sound barrier. This is possible because it adds density and stability to the fabric while maintaining its original quality. One major application is in sound proofing upholstered wall track systems.
