Press release date: May 31, 2013

BOLINGBROOK, IL, -- Pres-On is bringing manufacturers a cost-effective alternative to silicone foam with its new N3000, a lightweight, closed cell, cross linked foam based on Nylon 6.

Pres-On N3000 exhibits outstanding structural rigidity, even at higher temperatures, allowing it to be fabricated into simple or highly-complex shapes for automotive and industrial seals, gaskets or thermal insulation that require high temperature tolerance plus chemical resistance.

Independent testing demonstrated virtually no shrinkage (>5%) when N3000 was exposed for 24-hours to temperatures up to 210 C (410 F). In addition, this foam meets the strict flammability requirements of Factory Mutual standards. Moreover, its closed cell structure acts as a barrier to condensation, an important feature for manufacturers using N3000 as thermal insulation.

N3000 is offered in 39" x 78" sheets in thicknesses ranging from 1/16-inch to 1/2-inch, and can be specified with or without an acrylic adhesive.

For a free sample, call Pres-On at 800.690.8025 or email sales@pres-on.com. On the web visit www.preson.com.
