Reticulated Foam

Reticulated foams are a specialised type of polyurethane foam, developed for applications where cell sizes, density and porosity levels are key factors. We manufacture this innovative foam by blowing the cells open to create materials with a consistent and exact cell size, allowing us to offer an extensive variety of design options. Thanks to their versatility, reticulated foams are the material of choice for many precise applications.

Popular uses for reticulated foam include:

water filter and engine filter foam

Reticulated foam is also perfect for use in marine furnishings, due to its unique quick-drying nature. The mesh-like structure of a reticulated foam sheet stops water from being absorbed and held in the same way as standard foam, making it longer-lasting, mildew repellent and ideal for use in things like yacht seating and outdoor furniture.

We are one of the leading foam and rubber manufacturers in the UK, and can develop a wide range of reticulated foam filter products, also including all of those mentioned above as well as air filter foam. The precise nature of reticulated foams mean they can provide exact and accurate filtration, creating air filters that offer an improved level of airflow and dust absorption.

The Benefits of Reticulated Foam

There are a whole range of benefits to using reticulated foams, including:

  • Durability
  • Oil and chemical resistance
  • UV and light resistance
  • Weldability
  • High tensile strength
  • Temperature and oxidation resistance

The open cell structure of this type of foam allows maximum air circulation through the pores, as well as excellent elasticity. When foam regularly absorbs moisture it can become prone to mould and mildew, but the increased airflow in all densities of reticulated foam eliminates this risk. Our reticulated foams and foam sheeting are also fire retardant to Class O, BS EN 45545-2, FMVSS302 and UL94 standards, and the range we can supply includes carbon impregnated reticulated foam sheets, which enable enhanced chemical filtration.

Just like standard polyurethane foam, reticulated foams can be cut and shaped to suit your specific needs.

Expert Foam Manufacturing

As an engineering-based company, we understand the important role air, oil and dust filters play in the smooth running of a car, motorcycle, bus or train engine. We manufacture and supply a broad range of engine filter foams to meet the diverse requirements of different filter manufacturers, as well as producing a host of other automotive foam products.

Reticulated foams are also perfect for use in sound control and absorption, and at Technical Foam Services our skilled engineers can create acoustic foam solutions for any industrial application.
