Molded Foam Industry Information

Molded Foam

Molded foam is polymer foam formed via a molding process, such as injection molding, compression molding, reaction injection molding, or centrifugal molding. To find out if molded foam is right for you, consult with one or more of the many molded foam manufacturers listed on this page.

Quick links to Molded Foam Information

Applications of Molded Foam

Molded foam has applications in a wide range of industries, including sports and recreation, lawn and garden, automotive manufacturing, footwear and comfort, food processing, construction office, outdoors, mining, and bath.

Molded Foam Design and Customization

Polymer foam can be molded into a wide variety of products, such as:
Molded Foam Sheets
Conveyor Bushings
Conveyor Wheels
Pneumatic Seals
Knee Pads
Helmet Lining
When designing your product, manufacturers consider factors like:
Application Environment
Required Impact Resistance
Required Chemical Resistance
Required Impermeability

Manufacturing Process of Molded Foam

Manufacturers can pick a material and molding method based on the specifications of your application.

Here are the common molding methods used to produce molded foam:

Injection Molding
Inexpensive and capable of producing high volumes of high tolerance, complex parts. Unfortunately, though, the cost of cooling injection dies is quite high in comparison with the rest of the process. Also, the parts often require secondary processing after molding.
Compression Molding
Generally eliminates the need for secondary processing. It can also produce parts with large cross sections. However, compression molding is often expensive.
Reaction Injection Molding
Unique in that it completes curing while the foam is still inside the mold. The foam, which is first mixed with additives (catalysts, polyols, surfacents, and blowing agents), reaches the mold after manufacturers inject it as a liquid. Once the liquid polymer is inside the mold, manufacturers use an impinging mixer to pressurize it and give it its final shape. This type of foam molding creates lightweight and strong products, has low tooling costs, and requires less clamping force than other molding processes. Its only real drawback is the fact that it has higher than normal raw material costs and high cycle times.
Centrifugal Molding
Involves rotating the polymer material on an axis, where it’s exposed to centrifugal forces that help shape it. Manufacturers use centrifugal molding to create products with large cross sections. However, it is more time consuming than the other foam molding methods.
