Polyethylene Foams

These foams are lightweight, durable, easy to fabricate, and are not abrasive or dusting. They are effective protectors and highly durable materials to use inside a case. They provide shock absorption for extra safety. They are also immune to mold, rot, bacteria, moisture, and chemical damage. A little bit of these foams goes along way, making it possible to cut down on packaging costs while still getting the proper protection.

Cross-linked Polyethylene Foams

These are considered the highest quality and most effective packaging foam. Inserts made from this material are long lasting and aesthetically appealing. It can be used to protect class “A” devices.

Polyurethane Foams

These are ideal for transporting certain types of equipment. They provide solid protection for lightweight delicate objects because they are brilliant functional cushions. This foam is low cost and can be cut at a wide variety of densities to suit a vast array of applications.
