Plastazote® and Evazote® Foams
Manufactured by Zotefoams Plc, Plastazote® and Evazote® foams are unique in that they are expanded using inert Nitrogen gas. This means that any residual “blowing” agent that may leech out over a period of time will be the inert Nitrogen.

Plastazote® is an expanded polyethylene foam, whilst Evazote® is an expanded polyethylene/eva copolymer foam.
