Ethafoam is a versatile closed-cell polyethylene foam. It can be manufactured in a range of densities to achieve its flexible yet durable characteristics. Ethafoam is most commonly used for various bespoke packaging requirements due to its shock absorption and cushioning properties. It is also impervious to most chemicals, mildew and rot, as well as it being water-resistant, making it suitable for the packaging, protection and preservation of delicate and/ or valuable items.
- Packaging – including cushioned protection and shock absorption
- Electronics – including antistatic properties which can be further enhanced for use in the protection of electrical goods
- Buoyancy – including use in personal floatation devices (PFDs) and life jacket applications

Is Ethafoam waterproof?
