What is Perforating?

At IPS Perforating, Inc., we provide high-quality, consistent perforating services with fast turnaround times. We provide perforating services to a variety of industries, and our perforating work helps achieve these purposes for different projects:

  • Functionality—Perforations can make certain materials more functional. For example, if portions of a material need to be separated through tear-off sections following purchase, perforations can make this easier.
  • Aesthetics—Perforations can add an artistic or decorative element to materials. With perforations, you can add interesting textures, visual patterns, and designs, enhancing the appearance of the material.
  • Acoustic properties—In materials like acoustic panels, perforations can be placed strategically to diffuse or absorb sound waves.
  • Ease of Use—Perforations are used on a regular basis for packaging materials. For example, perforations are often added to cardboard boxes to allow for easy opening without the need for excessive force or tools.
  • Breathability—Perforations can make a material more lightweight and breathable. For example, in the automotive industry, perforations are often added to vehicle seat leather to make the material more breathable and comfortable to sit on.
