• Industrial Packaging
  • Polyurethane Foam

  • Polyurethane foam is mainly used for packaging very shock sensitive items. Typically, the material can be die cut and glued to produce end caps or top and bottom caps to protect items like hard drives and electronic products. It can also be convoluted and products such as motherboards or circuit boards can be sandwiched between the convoluted layers for protection. This foam can also be saw cut and laminated to corrugated. Fabricated polyurethane typically requires a cutting die to produce the fabricated part. These cutting dies require a one-time up front charge. Typically, these will cost from $500 to $1,000 each.

    Features and benefits:

  • Attractive and will compliment your products image.
  • Non-abrasive
  • Can be produced with an antistatic additive
  • Can be convoluted (show convoluted foam sample)
  • Polyurethane accommodates many cushioning applications because it is offered in a variety of densities. Plus, the material can be produced with various IFDs to produce the correct cushioning properties. Indentation Force Deflection, is a measurement of foam surface firmness. It is the force, measured in the pounds of pressure, required to compress a foam sample 25% of its height using a 50 square inch indentor plate. On a four inch thick sample, the reading would be taken at a 1" compression. The material density range for this product is from 1.0 to 6.0 lbs per cubic foot. Coupling the IFD and the density provides the designer with a product unlike any other cushioning foam product. Weight and product fragility are the two factors that generally determine the density of foam and the IFD that is required.
