We offer 3 different adhesive solutions for applying our foam to cases to ensure we are providing the right required solution for different industries and applications
Permanent tack sprayable Holt melt adhesive
Sprayable contact adhesive
Self-adhesive direct to foam
Self-adhesive - S-4608 MF is a double-sided scrim tape based on a modified polyacrylic pressure sensitive adhesive, coated on to a glassine paper liner. The scrim carrier provides added tensile strength when applied to fragile substrates and at 80 microns thickness it is suitable for lamination on to lightly structured surfaces and small pore diameter foams. The MF adhesive offers good all round bonding performance and is especially suited to bonding on low surface energy substrates such as PE, PP, EPDM as well as PU
Self-adhesive backing is used commonly on 10mm and 20mm sheets as the correct application of pressure is more easily achieved than with thicker foam. This helps to get the best bond through the quickest process. This process is also very clean and solvent free allowing it to meet any legislation required from an health and safety stand point.
Another adhesive we offer is: Sprayable Contact Adhesive
CFC free, multipurpose adhesive, with low odour, developed to bond a wide variety of substrates. The product is delivered through a hose and spray gun system and gives an unparalleled bond strength.
Mostly, this is used where extreme heat and gravity have an impact on bond strength e.g. in a block of foam that is required in the lid. We use this process to ensure we get the best bond
Our final adhesive is: Hot Melt Adhesive
Hot melt is designed to spray clean and give a good balance of open time, tack and final bond strength
Holt melt is the most cost-effective solution for our standard foam process. It bonds to all of the materials we use. When bonding foam to foam we get the strongest finish. This process is also clean and solvent free allowing us to provide the safest solution.

The foam we use is a 29-kilo closed cell crosslinked microcellular Polyolefin Foam. This is used in all our cases lining and CNC foamed blocks
We’ve recently began using 35mm angle and 35mm double extrusion on some of our Touring Grade Flightcases and here’s why:
35mm Leg Length
The increased leg length reduces the risk of excessive panel deformation and greatly increases the payload capacity. Ensuring that, even with heavy loads, the touring grade flightcase case remains square, and the lid(s) can be opened and closed smoothly every time.
Rivet Head Protection
A small section of the extrusion is made thinner, leaving a channel to position the rivet. This area reduces the exposed height of the rivet head, reducing the risk of damaged and wear and tear.
2mm Wall Thickness
Greater wall thickness reduces deformation and buckling cause by impact and handling
As with all FCW extrusions, we designed our 35mm angle for endurance, aesthetics, and strength, to withstand the rigours of the road.
