BC Adhesives - Sponge Assembly

BC Adhesives is a trusted provider of high-quality sponge / foam lamination adhesives. With years of experience in the industry, we understand the importance of a secure and reliable bond between your different substrate layers. Understanding the different adhesive options and equipment necessary can help you choose the right solution.

Manufacturing process of sponges

The manufacturing process of laminating kitchen sponges with adhesive typically involves several steps:

Material Preparation:

  • Raw materials, including sponge material and adhesive, are gathered and prepared for the manufacturing process.

Cutting and Shaping:

  • The sponge material is cut into appropriate shapes and sizes, depending on the desired final product.

Adhesive Application:

  • Specially formulated adhesive is applied to the surface of the sponge. The adhesive is carefully distributed to ensure even coverage. This is typically done with a roll coater. We have a wide range of hot melt and liquid polyurethane (PUR) adhesives that will be perfect for your application requirements.


  • Multiple layers of sponge material are stacked together, with the adhesive acting as a bonding agent between the layers.

Pressing and Bonding:

  • The layered sponge materials are subjected to a pressing mechanism. This pressure helps to bond the layers together securely, allowing the adhesive to create a strong and durable connection.

Curing or Drying:

  • The bonded sponge layers go through a curing or drying process. This step is essential to allow the adhesive to set and achieve optimal strength. We have products that are faster or slower depending on your requirements.

Quality Control:

  • The laminated sponges undergo quality control checks to ensure that the adhesive has created a solid bond and that the overall product meets specified standards.

Trimming and Finishing:

  • Excess material is trimmed, and the sponges are shaped to their final form. Any imperfections are addressed during this stage.


  • The finished kitchen sponges are packaged and prepared for distribution.

Throughout the entire process, manufacturers may implement quality assurance measures to ensure the consistency and reliability of the laminated kitchen sponges. The choice of adhesive and the precision of application are critical factors in producing high-quality sponges that meet performance expectations. Trust the team at BC Adhesives to help choose the right product for your application and substrates.

Common equipment used for sponge assembly

The lamination of foam layers in the sponge assembly process involves specific equipment designed to ensure proper bonding and layering. Here are some key pieces of equipment commonly used:

Laminating Machine:

  • This is a specialized machine designed for the lamination process. It typically consists of rollers that apply adhesive to the layers of foam prior to the bonding process.

Adhesive Applicator:

  • An adhesive applicator is connected to your lamination machine and disperses an even layer of adhesive on the surface of the foam layers. This can include spray systems, rollers, or other applicators depending on the adhesive type and manufacturing requirements.

Conveyor System:

  • Conveyors are used to transport the foam layers through various stages of the lamination process. They ensure a smooth and controlled movement of materials, allowing for precise bonding.

Pressing Mechanism:

  • Hydraulic or pneumatic pressing mechanisms are often employed to apply the necessary pressure to bond the foam layers together. The pressing mechanism can be adjustable to accommodate different materials and thicknesses.

Drying or Curing System:

  • Equipment for drying or curing the adhesive after lamination. This may include ovens, infrared systems, or other drying methods, depending on the type of adhesive used.

Cutting and Trimming Tools:

  • Cutting and trimming equipment is used to shape the laminated foam into the desired final form. This can include die-cutting machines, knives, or other cutting tools.

Quality Control Devices:

  • Sensors and inspection systems are employed to monitor the lamination process and ensure the quality of the bonded foam layers. These devices may detect irregularities or variations in the lamination.

Temperature and Humidity Controls:

  • Some manufacturing processes require specific temperature and humidity conditions for optimal adhesive performance. Equipment such as climate control systems should be used to maintain the ideal environment.

Roller Systems:

  • Rollers are commonly used in the lamination process to ensure even pressure distribution across the foam layers. They help in achieving uniform bonding.

Material Handling Systems:

  • Equipment for handling and feeding raw materials into the lamination process efficiently.

The combination of these equipment types allows manufacturers to control the lamination process effectively, ensuring their foam layers are securely bonded with adhesive, resulting in high-quality laminated sponges.
