POLYURETHANE FLEXIBLE FOAM
FOAM IN ROLLS
From continuous production polyurethane, blocks of various lengths are obtained. 60 m long blocks (called long panos) are used for the production of rolls of foam. The long pano is positioned on a cutting machine that enables combining and gluing the head and tail of the pano, creating a big ring (ellipse). In the middle of its path, the ring created meets a cutter that, with an electronic control, slices the pano and creates a roll of foam (continuous leaf).
Depending on the types and density, it is possible to get rolls of thickness from little more than one millimetre up to about ten centimetres. The height of the roll varies from one metre and a half up to over two metres. Thickness tolerances are handled in tenths of a millimetre.
