Industry Information

Foam fabricators are manufacturers produce a wide variety of foam and foam products. In this context, foam is a polymer-based material created when manufacturers froth up a molten polymer material and then cool it down while it is still in this state. Polymer foam is lightweight and full of bubbles that give it a sponge-like appearance.

Many applications call for the services of foam fabricators. Examples of foam applications include: insulation, cushioning, sealing, filtration, absorption and more. Foam products are common in industries such as: healthcare, food and beverage, construction, furniture, shipping, acoustics and cleaning. There, they exist as products like: mats, food coolers, packaging, soundproofing panels, air filters, surgical sponge, foam inserts, gaskets, seating pads, memory foam mattresses and pillows, and cleaning sponges.

To make foam, foam fabricators use a variety of different polymer materials. Regardless of their material composition, manufacturers create and work with two main types of foam: closed-cell foam and open-cell foam. Closed cell foam is made up of cells that are separate from one another because they are sealed. Closed-cell foam has high compressive strength and is incredibly dense. Meanwhile, open-cell foam is made up of broken cell walls. Open-cell foam soft, spongy and lightweight.
