Foam Coatings, Foam Adhesives and Firefighting Foam
GENERAL DESCRIPTION
Some of Allied's specially formulated foams may prove useful as long duration fire fighting agents. Initial testing shows that the high foam stability under intensive heat may make these foams as good barrier for the containment of forest fires.

Use of a foamable mixture as an expansion agent permits application of a controlled film thickness with improved resin distribution and penetration into the fibers of a woven or knitted fabric. Foamed textile binders dry quickly (compared to unfoamed and water-based coatings) and do not cause fiber distortion.

APPLICATIONS
(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.
