ZOTEK F foams are inherently flame retardant
Featured Product from Zotefoams, Inc.
High performance closed cell, cross-linked fluoropolymer foam based on PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride).
ZOTEK F foams are inherently flame retardant releasing very little heat and only small quantities of smoke during combustion. They are biologically inert and offer:
•a range of densities from 30kg/m3 to 75kg/m3
•resistance to a wide range of solvents and aggressive chemicals
•thermal stability up to 160°C / 320?F
•excellent flammability resistance
•low smoke & toxicity
•resistance to UV, nuclear radiation and ageing
•high dielectric strength
The ZOTEK F range comprises:
Grades for the general industry
•ZOTEK F40 HT (High Temperature resistance up to 160?C / 320?F)
•ZOTEK F75 HT
•ZOTEK F40 HT LS (High Temperature, Low Smoke) (listed to UL 723/ ASTM E-84 "Standard Method of Test of Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials")
•ZOTEK F42 HT LS ( meets FM 4910 "Clean-room Materials Flammability Test protocol") is used in the production of our T-FIT® insulation system
Grades for the aviation industry (OEM)
•ZOTEK F30 (BMS 8-371D; AIMS04-14-009)
•ZOTEK F38 HT (BMS 8-371D; AIMS04-14-009)
•ZOTEK F74 HT
Grades for the aviation industry (interior)
•ZOTEK F OSU flexible, semi-rigid and rigid
Grades for the aerospace industry
•ZOTEK F30 (NASA)
•ZOTEK F40 HT (NASA)
•ZOTEK F75 HT (NASA)
ZOTEK F foams can be manipulated using conventional conversion methods, such as die-cutting, water jet cutting, sawing, laminating, and welding into continuous rolls. They can also be thermoformed into complex single component structures providing benefits over multi-layer foam systems, such as weight and cost reduction.
ZOTEK F foams are used extensively in:
•the commercial, business and military aircraft and aerospace industries where they meet the stringent industry flammability requirements
•high specification building and construction projects where UV resistance is key
•industrial applications such as chemical engineering, pharmaceutical production, and medical equipment
•semiconductor & pharmaceutical clean-room environments (sealing and insulation applications)
•the manufacturing of our T-FIT insulation system
•the electrics and electronics industries as low closure force seals
