High Density Foam
When high-value heavier products and equipment need to be transported, selecting the correct packaging foam is vital to ensure both protection and impact absorption. In such situations, a high density foam provides the optimum solution. These closed-cell foams combine heavy duty performance, superior high load-bearing (HLB) capacity and impact protection, all in a lightweight, thin foam.
- Medical equipment – including cushions and supports.
- Impregnated-barrier foam – for acoustic modifications and aircraft engine bays.
- Upholstery – including cinema seating and domestic furniture.
- Memory foam mattresses for a better night’s sleep.
What We Offer
Due to the uniform cellular structure of closed cell and high density foams, the products we manufacture provide a high level of protection that lasts. Flexible and durable, these materials continue to provide a superior level of shock absorption over a sustained period, recovering from the impact each time while still providing complete protection to the goods inside.
Why choose us?
High-quality, high-tech solutions with no-nonsense guidance, competitive pricing and 100% customer satisfaction.
Foam design and development
We’re not just manufacturers – we offer support and guidance with bespoke foam design and development.
Expertise in foam materials
We have an outstanding reputation in the field of specialist foam and can recommend the right solutions to meet your needs.
What are the properties of high density foam?
High density foam is anti-static, which is particularly relevant in the packaging of electrical goods and components as well as for products that will be transported by air. High density foam is also flexible, enabling precision shaping and a custom fit to be achieved, even for the most complex goods. It is UV, chemical and moisture resistant.
Closed cell, high density foams also provide complete protection that far exceeds mere shock absorption. They are also fire retardant, non-corrosive and totally odourless, thus providing a completely safe and neutral environment for light, moisture and chemically sensitive objects.
How long does high density foam last?
On average, lower density foam tends to last about 4-6 years, while medium and high density foams last upwards of 8-10 years, depending on use and care. As well as lasting a long time, high density foam is reusable and recyclable so it’s a more environmentally-friendly and cost-effective option compared with other solutions.
This foam is perfect for re-usable transportation packaging, even for the likes of moisture-sensitive electronic components and state-of-the-art medical and military equipment.
What shapes can be made in high density foam?
We are able to produce high density packaging foams in an array of sizes and shapes to meet the precise requirements of a wide spectrum of applications. Take a look at our product design page for further details.
Who are the most recognised high density foam manufacturers?
While Technical Foam Services do not manufacture foam, we source and convert foams into finished products, so we might be the solution to your problem – especially if you’re looking to develop an idea or want a finished product that includes high-density foam. By using us instead of a manufacturer, we can guide you on what foam you might need, rather than just sell you what you think you need.
As the leading UK-based manufacturer and converter of high density protective packaging foams, we stock a wide range of HLB high density foams in the most advanced closed-cell, cross-linked polyethylene materials, including Plastazote, Evazote and Alveolit. We also stock closed cell high density foam. Why not give us a call today and we can discuss your specific needs.
