Despite what some may think, all foams are not created as equals! By looking at the foams, or even hearing their names, most people won’t be able to tell the different features and benefits of each type. So we’ve decided to create a simple, easy to understand guide that will map out the key points you’ll need to know.

Open cell polyurethane

Non sealed cell walls allow air to move freely between the cells.

Cushions through compression

Available in anti-static

Great for fragile items

Non-Cross Linked Polyethylene

Firmer than open cell, making it stronger and more resilient.

Closed cell structure

Cost effective

Water resistant

Good insulator



Cross Linked Polyethylene

Closed cell foam expanded with nitrogen gas.

Closed cell structure

Water resistant

Good insulator

Strong and durable
