Kaiflex R-FORCESemi-rigid elastomeric foam
Products for Special Applications from Kaimann
Kaiflex R-FORCE is not actually a material, but a technology. An elastomeric insulating material, known as Kaiflex, forms the basis of a patented method which is used to produce a high-quality, compression resistant, fine-celled foam. This allows its strength to vary over a wide range from 80 up to more than 150 kPa (EN 826). Kaiflex R-FORCE gives elastomeric products unique properties no other material can achieve: All Kaiflex R-FORCE materials have exceptional compression characteristics. The greater the exerted pressure, the disproportionately more the counteracting force developed by the Kaiflex R-FORCE. This progressive behaviour under pressure provides much greater application reliability in comparison to thermoplastic or rigid foams: While standard foams only follow the pressure proportionally, Kaiflex R-FORCE builds up extreme counter pressure which halts the compression.
Kaiflex R-FORCE foams are ideal for all applications which require stability together with simple handling and the partial retention of rubber properties:
