Chip foam packaging
Chip foam, also known as reconstituted foam, is a high-performance, cost-effective open cell packaging solution, which is ideal for a wide spectrum of goods ranging from heavy plant and machinery to electronic goods such as laptops and computers.
As the recognised UK-based leader in engineering-biased foam conversion, we offer a wide selection of chip foam packaging solutions in an extensive selection of colours and densities, which are used to package goods all around the world.
Greater than the sum of its parts
Chip foam is manufactured from the “scrap” polyurethane foam that is produced when cutting large foam sheets and blocks. These are then granulated and bonded together to form a highly versatile and cost-effective foam solution, which is particularly suited to a wide range of packaging applications.
While some may view chip foam as simple off-cuts or scrap, these foam materials offer the same high quality as other polyurethane materials while the bonding process instils a high degree of flexibility and strength into the end products. As a result, chip foam is a versatile and economical solution that offers performance properties that are, in fact, often greater than the sum of its parts. This results in a superior level of durability, resilience, impact and sound absorption and protection than many “virgin” materials.
Although chip foam may be produced from off-cuts, it by no means cuts corners in terms of its performance properties. Far from being a cheaper substitute for other foams, it offers the optimum solution in a wide range of packaging applications where quality and endurance are paramount.
Testament to this is the widespread use of chip foam in military packaging applications, where stringent specifications and harsh conditions demand only the highest standard foams can be used.
A cut above the rest
Ideal for large and heavier goods such as plant, machinery and larger electronic components, we supply chip foam in a wide range of thicknesses, densities and colours to meet the demands of a vast array of specific packaging applications.
As the leading engineering-biased chip foam manufacturer and converter, we also offer the widest choice of shaping and finishing options, and our design and manufacturing capabilities in the packaging sector are second to none.
With state-of-the-art UK conversion facilities and an in-house engineering department with over 30 years’ experience in processing foam materials, including chip foam, we can produce bespoke tooling to create chip foam packaging solutions to house even the most complex shaped products.
From simple plain cut chip foam pads and egg box profiling to state-of-the-art, sophisticated CNC die cut chip foams, at Technical Foam Services the cutting and finishing options we offer are virtually limitless.
As experts in the field of chip foam packing solutions, we are able to offer a truly comprehensive and bespoke service to our customers, from the design and development of prototypes, through testing to full-scale manufacturing.
