Kiss Cut Foam Parts

What Is Kiss Cutting?

Kiss cutting is a die-cutting process of manufacturing parts while leaving them attached to a backing, often carrier tape or a silicone release liner. The parts are wound and delivered in roll forms and can be cut into discrete parts. The parts stay on the removable layer of paper or foil making it easier to transport, organize and is easily peeled off when needed for an application. This process requires extreme precision so that the foil or paper backing remains intact without any slits or cracks.

Kiss Cutting Process

The kiss cut process begins with a digitally printed design that is processed through the laser cutting machine. A layer of foam is placed on top of a removable paper or foil. The laser machine then cuts through the material but not through the release liner. The method's name comes from the die (blade) gently “kisses” the backing foil or paper without cutting or ripping through.

Many of our kiss cut foam parts are used for the following applications:

  • Foams
  • Sponges
  • Rubber
  • Pressure-sensitive materials
  • Foam shipping pads
  • Labels
  • Gaskets
  • Foam Spacers
  • Stickers

Advantages & Benefits

Kiss-cut foam parts improve productivity and faster assembly while reducing the cost of production. Removing the parts are quick and simple, allowing your workers to remove the required parts when needed. This reduces downtime that assemblers waste digging through containers, separating parts that are stuck together, and removing the liner. The backing paper on kiss-cut foam parts is never cut making the components easier to handle and ship in neat, tidy rolls. The backing paper protects the kiss cut foam parts from deforming or damage during transit. Kiss-cut foam parts are peel-and-stick products equipped with pressure-sensitive adhesives that are flexible.
