Polyurethane ether foam is an open-cell foam with exceedingly soft compression characteristics and a relatively low tensile strength. Its open-cell structure makes it permeable to air and water. Ether is the urethane polymer typically used in household and automotive furniture cushions; usually in a cream, light yellow or amber color.


Polyurethane ester foam is an open-cell foam material that is soft in compression and contains memory characteristics. High tensile strength for a polyurethane, but not compared to standard polyethylene. Its open-cell structure also makes it permeable to air and water. Ester has a uniform texture and density throughout the material, with no skin on either face.


Polyethylene is a durable, chemically stable, closed-cell foam with a wide variety of shock-absorption, vibration-dampening, and insulation properties depending on the product spec. PE foams cut, carve and bond easily, with only the heaviest densities requiring power saws to cut. They will not off-gas, and are widely considered viable interior materials for long-term storage containers. Polyethylene foams are recyclable.



Crosslink Polyethylene (XLPE)



Acoustic / Reticulated Foam



Anti-Static / Conductive / Static Dissipating





Crosslinked Polyethylene (XLPE) is a micro-cell, high density, chemically stable, closed-cell foam. XLPE has an ultra smooth surface finish. it is ideal for packaging high gloss parts. XLPE is made in a range of densities, able to support light to heavy industrial parts. Also with its smooth surface, it is widely used for presentation and display packaging.   Acoustic foam is a very porous and low density foam. As it contains extremely open cells, there are very few to no bubbles or cell windows. This foam’s component may consist of polyurethane, a ceramic or metal and can be used in home studios or theaters as grill cloth to hide speakers and allow sound to pass through. Alternately it can also be used as a filter medium for dust and particles from air flow or water.   Anti-Static Foam:

A grade of foam that prevents and inhibits the buildup of static electricity; it is primarily used for the protection and custom foam packing of sensitive electronic components and products. This offers a lower range of electrical resistance than static dissipating and conductive foams.

        Conductive Foam:

A grade of foam that offers the highest level of electrical resistance, and provides excellent EMI shielding. “Conductivity” refers to the material's ability to drain away charges instantly.





Static Dissipative Foam:

A grade of foam packing in the middle range of electrical resistance, greater than anti-static and lower than conductive.
