SC100 (surface coat) modifies the surface characteristics of a substrate. Applied in full coverage, this water-based, latex-free formulation mimics the outer skin inherent on some foam materials. SC100 does not occlude moisture vapor transfer, allowing continued breathability of the base substrate. This reduces heat build-up and moisture which ensures overall comfort.
SC100 can be directly cast on a wide range of HyPUR-cel® polyurethane foam in the continuous roll-to-roll form at various widths. To ensure cleanliness, SC100 satisfies the AATCC 61 requirements for 2A wash testing. The SC100 coating allows the substrate breathability along with excellent durability, enhanced strength, improved elasticity and will benefit many performance applications.
Applied to an open-cell polyurethane foam, SC100 enables MVT properties to remain. This desirable breathability characteristic enables heat dissipation and minimizes moisture build-up.
IMPROVED TENSILE PROPERTIES
As measured on our HyPUR-cel® engineered (open-cell) polyurethane foam, the SC100 formulation improves strength by nearly 60% while maintaining the original elongation performance. This benefit further highlights the potential end use performance enhancements of existing and future applications, especially when compared to neoprene.
IMPROVED TENSILE STRESS RELAXATION
Sometimes the original surface characteristics of a substrate are smoother than desired for the target application. NS100 can enhance the surface CoF on the entire substrate surface or in specific, targeted areas with minimal impact to the other desirable properties.
DESIGN, PATTERN AND 3D OPPORTUNITIES
SC100 improves the original properties of how the base substrate responds to repeated use/stretching. Products relying on consistent elasticity performance, such as orthopedic wraps and supports, benefit from minimized slip/fit issues with SC100, when compared to uncoated neoprene.
REQUIREMENTS AND TESTING
SC100 does not occlude moisture vapor transfer, allowing continued breathability of the base substrate.
Characteristics of this highly engineered and thermoformable product are excellent for use in orthopedic wraps/braces, as a latex-free, neoprene alternative. Other applications include medical, automotive, recreational, outdoor, safety or padding/cushioning applications where a strong, elastic, breathable and durable surface is desired.Contact us
