The core element of our production facility is the process of converting blocks of Cellular Rubber and Foam into sheets and continuous rolls.
The majority of materials are manufactured by a process combining heat and pressure to provide expansion to a base Solid Rubber compound.
Foam Conversion
About our Foam Conversion Services
Alanto’s conversion process consists of taking blocks of material typically 2m x 1m to convert into various thicknesses, from this point other processes are carried out within our extensive manufacturing facility.

What is Cellular Rubber?

Cellular Rubber has a variety of benefits, in that it is light, waterproof and flexible. It is classed as a Foam Rubber with no cell structure, which gives it the ability to be compressed.

There are two main types of cellular Rubber that can be used: open-cell Rubber and closed-cell Rubber.

1. Open-cell Rubber.
2. Closed-cell Rubber.

Cellular Rubber, also known as Foam Rubber or sponge Rubber, is a type of synthetic or natural Rubber that has a cellular or porous structure. This structure is created by incorporating gas into the Rubber during the manufacturing process, resulting in a material with a high degree of elasticity and compressibility.

The cells in cellular Rubber can be open or closed, depending on the specific application requirements. Open-cell Rubber has interconnected cells, allowing air and other substances to pass through, while closed-cell Rubber has sealed cells that do not allow the passage of air or liquids.

Cellular Rubber is often used for its cushioning and sealing properties. It provides excellent insulation against sound, heat, and vibrations. Common applications include gaskets, seals, insulation, padding in automotive and industrial settings, and various consumer products. It is also used in the production of footwear, sports equipment, and packaging materials. The specific properties of cellular Rubber can be tailored to meet the requirements of different applications, making it a versatile material in various industries

Foam Cutting Services for the Conversion Industry

Alanto has the machinery capabilities for Foam cutting, to split these materials into sheets and continuous rolls. Our machinery processing along with digital measuring facilities allow us to supply materials with accurate and tight tolerance levels. These include both closed-cell Rubber and open-cell Rubber.

We can split closed-cell Rubber and Polyethylene Foams in a thickness range from 1mm up to block thickness in any increments to suit your individual requirements.

Open cell materials generally start at a thickness from 2 mm up to block thickness dependent upon material quality.

Our facilities allow us to process materials to your individual dimensional needs to enable conversion and processing for a wide range of finished products.

We also have available a large portfolio of pressure-sensitive adhesive products which we can laminate to any material within our product range. Contact us today for more information on our materials.

Our range of self-adhesive products includes Rubber Resin based adhesives which generally have high levels of initial bond strength and are economically priced. Alternatively, we have a diverse catalogue of Aqueous and Solvent based Acrylic adhesives for more demanding applications. Acrylic adhesives have advantages over Rubber Resin products in applications requiring higher temperature stability and resistance to humidity and fluids.

Our onward-conversion facilities allow us to supply a diverse array of finished products all individually produced for your individual requirements to suit your application.
