  • Reusable Foam for Air Filtration

    Air filters are made from a variety of materials- both reusable and one time use. One of the most popular forms of filter media for air filters is polyurethane foam. Polyurethane foam is filled with air pockets that offer somewhere between thermally reticulated 15 and 20 pores per inch. The pores in the foam act perfectly as a barrier for collecting a variety of dust, dirt, and other contaminants that get into the air. Many factories and businesses that do not want to deal with the expense of one-time use...

  • Market Success Begins with Product Design

    By: Rachel Lawrence, TMP Technologies, Inc. When a new product is brought to market, even the slightest misstep in design can derail a successful launch. As a specialty contract manufacturer, TMP Technologies is accustomed to finding solutions for product development challenges. TMP's engineers have the skills and resources to design complex parts like their custom foam applicators. Recently, TMP partnered with Mission Athlete Care to develop a dispensing system for Mission's revolutionary performance-enhancing product, Court Grip . Mission approached TMP with a unique challenge: their liquid product had to be...

  • 4 Types of Closed Cell Foam

    Closed cell foam is a type of foam that has closed cells rather than open cells in the foam. Usually, this means that the foam cannot absorb water or other materials, because the cells are completely closed. So where a sponge-like foam can absorb water or other liquids, a closed cell foam will simply repel the water and absorb nothing. There are four main types of closed cell foams, each with distinct properties and uses. Consider the application of your foam type before choosing a foam to use with your...

  • Foam Inserts - Cutting Your Own or Having Them Custom Made

    by Steven Holand, Carry Cases Plus Owner When it comes to creating custom foam inserts for your carrying case or shipping case, there are several options available. If you'd like to cut your own inserts, purchasing a solid pad is a good way to go. Simply trace your item on the pad and cut the foam using a utility knife. The solid insert could also be used as is to protect thin items. Solid pads are available in either Polyurethane or Polyethylene foam. Polyurethane foam is soft, durable (similar to...

Industry Information

Polyurethane Foam

Polyurethane foam, sometimes abbreviated as PU foam, is a variety of closed cell foam that is highly flexible, resilient, and is capable of biodegrading in direct and indirect sunlight. It can be used as an alternative to polyethylene foam, and is made by combining catalysts, polyols, and a blowing agent to help give the material a certain level of porosity. Polyurethane foam, in addition to many other types of foam, can be used for applications such as packaging, automotive seat foam cushion padding, furniture upholstery padding, and carpet padding.

Flexible polyurethane foam, or FPF, is a polyurethane foam that molds itself to the shape of the object it is applied to. Therefore, FPF is commonly used to provide support and comfort in chairs, beds, and couches. Flexible polyurethane foam can be fabricated by way of two processes:

  1. Slab stock process – where the foam is produced in large continuous rolls, or buns, which can be shipped to be cut or cast into the shape of the finished product.
  2. Molding process – where the foam is inserted into a mold and left to cure and set into the shape of the final product. This process is frequently used for products such as sports equipment and car seat cushions.

Unlike polyethylene foam, polyurethane foam cannot be reheated to be manipulated into various configurations. Therefore, polyurethane foam is the material of choice when using the molding process to fabricate products. However, polyurethane foam can be just as easily cut into different sizes and shapes as any other foam material such as polyethylene, closed cell, and open cell foam. Polyurethane foam can be joined together with adhesives to achieve a certain shape, and can undergo the process of foam cutting, which can be carried out using hot wire, water jets, or blades.

Numerous industries utilize polyurethane foam to some extent. It has been and continues to be used for countless applications such as padding foam, soundproofing, acoustics, carpet cushioning, insulation foam, x-ray positioning pads, and surgical scrubbers. Polyurethane foam is typically flexible; however, it can come in a much more rigid closed cell form. In its closed cell form, polyurethane form is highly durable, and is resistant to changes in temperature, weather elements, or general wear and tear. Therefore, closed cell polyurethane foam is recommended for applications such as insulating freezers and refrigerators, and floatation elements in in water vessels such as surfboards and boat decks. Polyurethane foam can also be used in exterior and interior decorative items such as window headers, columns, and door frames. Since foam is light in weight, it is useful for applications that require a high strength-to-weight ratio. It can also be cleaned and sterilized after trapping unwanted particles, making it ideal for applications such as filter foam. Polyurethane foam can be filled with air pockets to create roughly 15 to 20 pores per inch, enabling the foam to easily pick up dirt, dust, and other contaminants.

In addition to these many uses, polyurethane foam can also come in liquid form, and can be used for sealing gaps and preventing leakage of air and water. Spray foam insulation has been utilized for the past several years, and is used to provide homes and commercial buildings with insulation that is both inexpensive and effective. Spray foam starts as a liquid, and hardens and expands once it dries. Recently, this same technology has been used for foundations.

Numerous structural issues can arise from unleveled foundation, such as cracks in the walls, stuck doors, and roof cave-ins. A building’s foundation can shift or even crack over time. When this happens, tearing down the entire building is usually the only solution. Fortunately, foam companies have discovered a way to use spray foam to alleviate these issues by way of a process known as foamjacking. Foamjacking is defined as the application of spray foam to a structure’s foundation. In this process, the company will seal the cracks, prepare the building to prevent seepage of foam, and injects the trouble spots with foam. In some instances, the interior flooring may be removed to better expose the spots. Sometimes, a set of holes with a drill hammer can assist in applying the foam to the trouble spots. After the foam is injected, all signs of damage are eliminated, and the foam helps lift the building and restore its stability. Although this use of polyurethane foam is relatively new, numerous foam companies have been capitalizing on the use of spray foam and offering it as an additional service that benefits customers and the company alike.
