To say something is “made of foam” likely produces one of two mental images of the material; the white polystyrene seen in drinking cups, coolers, and packing peanuts, or the squishy, spongy material that makes up foam footballs and polyurethane sheet packaging. These are both correct obviously, but as is true with many things, there is more than meets the eye with foam. Familiar, open-cell polyurethane foam is actually divided into two categories, ester-based polyurethane and ether-based polyurethane. If ... (Read More)

Secure DIY Packaging Solutions with Pick and Pull Grid Foam

Often, packaging minor items for shipping only requires a bit of crumpled newspaper, old packaging peanuts, or at most, leftover bubble wrap.

Deciding which material for packaging is needed, finding those materials and purchasing the right amount for the job can make someone wonder if ... (Read More)
