WHY STEARATE FREE FOAM?

We do NOT use zinc stearate in any of our products.

Zinc stearate is a lubricant, known for repelling water and adhesives. It is widely used in the manufacturing of foam as a processing aid and release agent. As a result, it can have detrimental effects on the ability to bond adhesive to foam in the manufacturing of tapes, medical devices, etc. Zinc stearate is also known to migrate to the surface of the foam over time, thus greatly decreasing adhesion shelf life of foams in applications that require an adhesive coating.
