Repairing or replacing your roof can be hugely expensive. When you have it completed, you’ll want to make sure that high quality, long lasting material is used. If your roof needs work, then you should consider using EPDM foam rubber. EPDM has many advantages when used as a roofing material.
• EPDM is extremely durable and long lasting. If you install an EPDM roof, it should last for the life of the building, with little or no maintenance.
• EPDM is very easy to install. Depending on the size of your roof, an installation could be completed in a few hours. It’s also very affordable to both purchase and install.
• Many green societies recommend the use of EPDM as a roofing material. This is because it’s made from eco-friendly materials and very little energy is used in its installation.
• Not all roofs are equal. Unusually shaped buildings may not lend themselves to rigid roofing materials. EPDM is an extremely flexible rubber, meaning that it can be it can be moulded to any shape of roof. It can even fit around chimneys, ridges and porches.
• EPDM is also extremely waterproof. Rain and extremely weather can cause significant damage to roofs. EPDM can effectively protect the structure of your roof from rain.
• Should your roof become damaged, small amounts of EPDM can be used to repair any cracks or dents in the material. It’s an excellent choice if you only need to repair a small part of your roof.

In this age of austerity, it’s important that we make savings wherever we can. Not having your home properly insulated can add hundreds of pounds to your energy bills every year. Open cell foam not only has excellent insulating properties, it’s also affordable and easy to install. Insulating your home with open cell foam can contribute to significant energy savings.
Open cell foam can easily be installed in the home by the owner. It therefore doesn’t incur any significant labour costs. It’s also incredibly environmentally friendly, with around 20% or it being made from renewable sources. This makes the insulation much less harmful to use.
The effectiveness of insulation is measured by how well it holds heat inside your home. Open cell foam is denser than traditional insulating materials, meaning that it can hold heat in your home extremely effectively. It completely fills the area it is sprayed into, meaning that your home will be thoroughly insulated all over.
Because they are kept in dark, damp areas, many traditional insulating products can be prone to mould and mildew over time. This can damage the walls of your home, and even make you ill. Open cell foam contains ingredients that help to prevent the build-up of mould and mildew, making it extremely safe to have in your home.
Open cell insulation foam is extremely long lasting. Once you have sprayed the foam, it will last as long as the house. They spray application also means that it can fit into any tight nooks and crevices and hard to reach areas.

When you send a package through the post, they can easily be subjected to bangs, bumps and scrapes. No matter how much your package is worth, you’ll want to make sure that it arrives at its destination in one piece. It’s essential that you use some form of protective material around your item to absorb shocks and stop it from getting damaged. Foam is perfect for this.
Foam packaging is very light in weight, strong and easy to use. The lightweight nature of foam packaging means that it will have little or no effect on the cost of shipping your package. It’s great at absorbing shocks and can be moulded to fit around items of any shape or size.
Foam packaging can take a number of different forms, most usually foam rolls, foam sheets or foam chips. They all have the same protective qualities, but they each have different benefits.
Foam rolls and foam sheets have the benefit of being recyclable by whoever receives the package; they can simply reuse the foam for any packages they may send. It can be used in a similar way to bubble wrap, being cut to size and wrapped around the item.
Chipfoam have the advantage of being able to mould around even the most unusually shaped packages. Simply put your item into a container and pour the foam chips around it, and your package will be protected from bumps and shocks. They can then be reused by the person who receives the parcel.

Our bath and showering rituals offer us a period in the day when we can truly relax and pamper ourselves. While bath sponges may not seem like a particularly lavish item, natural sponges are just that, and can change the way you feel about bathing. Natural sponge can contribute to a luxurious bathing regime, offering an experience that artificial bath sponges cannot.
Natural sponges originate from the sea and are harvested from the ocean floor. During their life, they travel the ocean feeding on nutrients. Their structure means that they don’t get weighed down by particles, and their natural pores enable them to easily flush out water. These properties ideally lend themselves to bathing and showering.
Natural bath sponges can hold far more water than artificial ones, as well bath or shower gel. They also provide much more foam and suds from your shower gel when you are bathing. Natural bath sponges also have exfoliating properties yet are incredibly gentle on the skin. While you are bathing, dead skin cells are gently lifted away from the body, and are then completed flushed out of the sponge, leaving your skin feeling incredibly clean and fresh. After a bath or shower using a natural sponge, your body will feel refreshed and your skin will have a natural glow.
If you are looking for natural sponges, good foam manufacturers, like Technical Foam Services, are experts in responsibly sourcing high quality natural sponges and loofahs from all over the world.
We are a leading UK foam company, so give us a try today.

A good night’s sleep is extremely important. Lack of sleep can cause fatigue, weight gain or even depression. One of the most important factors that contributes to a good night’s sleep is the quality of your mattress. If you wake up in the morning feeling sluggish and sore, then you may benefit from a visco memory foam mattress. By switching to a memory foam mattress, you could find that you wake up in the morning feeling considerably more alert, and any pains that you have throughout your body could subside.
Memory foam mattresses offer unprecedented support and comfort. They are made from intelligent foam that adjusts to the temperature of your body, moulding the mattress around every contour. Whenever you move in the night, the mattress adjusts to your shape. This ensures that your weight is distributed evenly, eliminating pain from pressure points around the body. Because you won’t be woken by discomfort from your mattress during the night, you’ll find that you wake up in the morning feeling much more alert.
Visco memory foam mattresses are the perfect choice for couples. With traditional mattresses, users could easily be woken by their partner moving around in the night. There is very little motion transfer with a memory foam mattress, meaning that, should one partner move, the other won’t feel it at all. No matter how much your partner moves in the night, you should have an undisturbed, refreshing, restful night’s sleep.
As a leading UK foam company, we can provide you with fantastic memory foam.

Visco memory foam is polyurethane foam with additional chemicals added which make it more dense and viscous. Because high-density visco memory foam reacts to body heat and moulds to a warm human body in a few minutes, it has become most familiar to the public as material used for mattresses and pillowcases. NASA first developed memory foam in 1966 as a material to be used to make aircraft cushions more comfortable and ergonomic. The material was released to the public domain in the 1980s and was eventually further developed for use in mattresses and pillows in the early 1990s.
These ultra comfortable and supportive mattresses were ideal for hospital patients whose existing conditions were exacerbated by the effects of being bed-bound, as well as providing new levels of sleep comfort for the general population. At www.technicalfoamservices.co.uk we are premium memory foam suppliers but we have diversified and developed memory foam for many innovative industry based bespoke applications.
Memory foam is a fantastic material because as well as moulding around objects and persons for extra comfort, it also regains its original shape and retains its structural integrity after compression, giving it strength and flexibility as well as comfort and cushioning properties.
We are amongst the elite level of memory foam suppliers because we now produce twenty different rigidities and densities of foam, which has made this already versatile material even more adaptable to novel applications such as stress relief toys, keyboard supports for computers, motorcycle and sports helmet linings. Moreover, we can have our designers produce bespoke products in an endless array of styles and shapes including egg box profiling and three dimensional foam blocks and shapes.
