Foam Conversion

We offer a range of environmentally friendly water-based and hot melt glues designed and developed specifically for foam converters.

Under the Simalfa brand, our Swiss manufactured water-based glues are market leading. Delivered via roller or spray applications (gravity fed or pressurised) we offer a range of glues to suit all foam related substrates. Alongside these water-based products we also offer a range of hot melt glues, again produced under the Simalfa brand.

Foam Cutting Machinery

We are the sole UK/EIRE agents for RAM Elettronica S.p.A.

RAM produce a range of fully computerised foam cutting machinery. Standard horizontal and vertical blade (or abrasive wire) cutting as well as endless band-knife (for contour cutting) machines are available. 

RAM's foam cutting machines are ideal for many industries including bedding, upholstery, office char, car seat, and many more. 

Mattresses, children's soft play areas, cleaning products etc, all require foam in different shapes and seizes, and this is the solution. 

In addition to foam, RAM's cutting expertise extends to multi-ply spreading and cutting of textiles, artificial leather, nonwoven fabrics, resinated substrates, dacron, glass wool, kevlar etc. Perfect for a myriad of industries.  

The computerised systems can be programmed to cut a large variety of foams and fabrics and the machines also ensure that they utilise the foam and fabric to minimise wastage.

"In the interests of both the environment and our staff we were keen to move away from foam adhesion glues that included solvents but we wanted to avoid the need for a complicated activator driven (2 part glue). Handy Ltd demonstrated their single component water-based Simalfa 301 adhesive at our premises. We were delighted with the performance of the glue and the simplicity of the gravity fed system. We subsequently converted all our glue spraying stations to the Simalfa product."
