Polystyrene - See Picture Here

Expanded & Extruded Polystyrene's are available in a range of different densities ( 10 - 40kg/m3 ) . A light weight cost effective packaging & insulation material used across a wide range of industries and packaging applications. Flame retardant materials are available at no extra cost, and are manufactured to using flame retardant in line with BS.3837 Part 1.

Polyurethane Foams
- See Picture Here

Polyether based Polyurethane (PU) foams are available in a wide range of densities (12 - 30 kg/m3), colours and specifications. Uses include packaging, industrial, automotive and acoustic, can be self-adhesive backed or plain. These are low cost foams, which tend to be used in less technologically demanding applications

Reconsituted Foams - See Picture Here

Reconsituted Foam (chipfoam) is produced using recycled scrap foam from various grades, and available in a range of densities ( 80 - 240 kg/m3 ) and colours.

This product is largely used in a high impact situation within lost cost packing.

Closed Cell Polyethylene Foams - See Picture Here

Plastazone, Evazote, Ethafoams are available in densities ranging from 18 - 300 kg/m3 and features include water and chemical resistance, energy absorption under impact and good insulation properties. Conductive, anti-static and flame retardant grades are also available. Can be self - adhesive backed or plain. Main uses include high value component packaging eg electronic, m.o.d and telecommunications industries. Sealing and gasket uses are also used, as well as sports and leisure applications
