The Many Benefits of Flame Lamination

Dal-Bac Manufacturing uses flame lamination to create custom composites including foams, films, knit and These composites are used in a wide variety of applications woven fabrics, non-wovens and vinyls. including:

  • Orthopedic paddingflame lamination
  • Automotive interiors
  • Thermal and acoustical insulation
  • Luggage
  • Flexible Beverage Insulating Laminates – (koozies)
  • Costumes
  • Intimate apparel
  • Medical disposables
  • Sports equipment
  • Packaging

Flame lamination is low cost, highly efficient and provides numerous benefits:

  • Material Flexibility: Flame Lamination can be used on an extensive array of substrates as long as the core material is flame laminable.  Polyurethane foams are the most common core material.
  • No Adhesive: Does not require any adhesive. This reduces the overall cost and eliminates adhesive creep and bond failure between the substrates due to spotty adhesive application.
  • Eco-Friendly: The absence of adhesives improves future recyclability, as there is one less element to be separated.
  • Multi-Layer solutions: Composites can be created with a laminate on one side of the core or both sides of the core.
  • Faster Throughput: The flame lamination process is generally much faster than other laminating options.
  • Variable Thickness: Composites can be as thick as .75 inches and some applications can utilize a very thin layer of polyurethane foam that adds no appreciable thickness.
