Foams are lightweight materials that come in a variety of densities, thicknesses, and base chemistries, and serve a variety of uses in industrial manufacturing. Advantage Converting combines its material science expertise with precision die-cutting and lamination services to help you solve technical challenges for a wide variety of applications.
Depending on composition, chemistry, and construction, foams can be die-cut or laminated. These natural or synthetic materials are soft, cushiony, and often water repellent, and can be laminated with adhesive for more dynamic and specific applications. They’re commonly used for medical and industrial applications, such as vibration absorption, sound dampening, sealing, mounting, and gasketing. Advantage Converting has experience converting a variety of foams, including vinyl, urethane, polyethylene, sponge rubber, and acrylic.
Q: When do I need a clean room?
Clean room manufacturing is primarily used when manufacturing sensitive materials that can be easily contaminated or affected by particles in the air. For example, at Advantage Converting, we have used our clean rooms to manufacture advanced wound care products, solar panel components, and vibration dampeners for the aerospace industry. However, a clean room can be used for any converted good. Our experts can work with you to determine clean room requirements for your project.
Q: What manufacturing processes does Advantage Converting perform in their clean rooms?
We can perform any manufacturing process in our clean rooms, including custom die cutting, laminating, slitting and rewinding, and roll-to-roll manufacturing.
Q: What is clean room manufacturing?
Clean room manufacturing is the use of an enclosed area with strict environmental controls to manufacture sensitive components. The controlled environment – or clean room – limits the presence of dust, airborne microbes, aerosol, and chemical vapors to prevent environmental contamination of sensitive components, such as those for medical, electronic, and aerospace applications.
Advantage Converting has multiple clean rooms that are available for all converted goods. Our clean rooms are certified as ISO 8 / Class 100,000 and ISO 7 / Class 10,000.
