Ethafoam® the Polyethylene Foam
Ethafoam® is a closed-cell Polyethylene foam that is very strong, resilient and flexible. Its durability makes it ideal for preserving the integrity of just about any object as it can handle repeated shocks and impacts. In order to cushion and protect fragile items, Ethafoam® is cut into a suitable shape and size, creating a special cushioned housing for the ultimate level of protection during shipping or transport.
Whether your item weighs only a couple of pounds or a couple hundred pounds, Ethafoam® products are available in a variety of strengths and densities. Thanks to its strength and high load bearing characteristics, your packaging costs can be greatly reduced since it can be reused several and because it uses thinner and smaller amounts of foam than others.
