Kiss Cutting at Reilly Foam

Kiss cutting is a precision die-cutting process utilized at Reilly Foam to create custom foam products that adhere to a variety of specifications. This intricate technique involves slicing through the top layer of material without cutting through the attached adhesive backing, enabling the creation of peel-and-stick foam pieces. Remarkably versatile, kiss cutting can be customized to suit numerous industries and design requirements, from protective packaging solutions to automotive gaskets.

At Reilly Foam, our state-of-the-art kiss cutting machinery ensures exact compliance with customer dimensions for consistency and reliability in every batch. Whether for simple or complex foam cutouts, you can trust in the precision and quality that Reilly Foam’s kiss cutting services bring to your project.
