|Comparison of dried coatings: Allied foam versus conventional stearate foam|
|uniform and fine pore structure||non-uniform and coarse pore structure|
|fine foam texture w. good hiding power||poor foam texture w. telegraph through|
|Foam coatings with Allied foam||Foam coatings with Stearate foam|
|Water-soaked cotton cloth coated with Allied foam and conventional stearate foam|
|Cotton cloth coated with Red AFT-300 Foam||Cotton cloth coated with Red Stearate Foam|
|(APPLICATIONS DESCRIBED BELOW ARE IN VARIOUS STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT)|
|Foam Coatings and Foam Adhesives|
|Substrates suitable for coating with the foamed resins of the present
invention may include rigid or flexible substrates such as yarns and woven,
webbed, felted, flocked or knitted fabrics.
As carpet backings, highly loaded (with CaCO3 ), low density, foamed rubber latex can be used to provide a resilient layer with improved wear, feel, and comfort.
Foamed adhesives based on Allied's foam system may be used to reduce adhesive consumption and prevent adhesive absorption by porous substrates.
