Foams in the industry
Foam made of polyethylene
For packaging, rather harder foam is required. Polyethylene foams (PE) are suited to packaging inserts as well as insulation furnishings, seals and impact sound insulation.
In pyramid form the foam is suited to acoustic insulation. Sound insulation furnishings can be found in sound studios, rehearsal rooms, production halls and offices. Targeted insulation in loudspeakers also ensures better sound quality. Any lining can also be directly processed by eurolaser’s laser systems.
Foam made of polypropylene
Packaging foam must fix transport goods on the one hand and also protect it from environmental impact. If very high quality packaging inlays are desired, foamed polypropylene (EPP or PP) is a very suitable material. The automotive industry likes to use this material for producing the interior. Due to its stability and the low weight, foam made of polypropylene is also frequently used in advertising.
Foam made of polystyrene
Polystyrene foam (PS), which is also known under the trade name Styrofoam, is used due to its harmlessness in the foodstuff industry. Electronics packaging is also made of Styrofoam. Due to its very low density, model builders often use polystyrene for airplane models.
