Understanding Military Performance Specifications for Foam

For industries that require materials on a large scale, consistency and quality are two of the most important considerations when thousands or even millions of products are being impacted by a batch of materials. This is important not only for one order, but as more and more orders are placed over time, each set of materials is expected to perform to the same specifications as the previous ones, and all orders that follow. To ensure the uniformity of materials ... (Read More)

Rebond Foam for Commercial Applications

Products intended for commercial use in hotels, restaurants, airports, and similar venues must be chosen with durability in mind. The sheer amount of wear and tear that commercial facilities are subject to is greater than anything seen in even the liveliest households. People are less careful to protect and preserve something that doesn’t belong to them. As a result, it’s not surprising that commercial products need to either be tough or face frequent repair and replacement in their lifetime. ... (Read More)

Seal the Deal with Foam Factory for Your Gasketing Needs

A gasket is the epitome of “small but strong,” and while they go unnoticed in almost all of their applications, they are also one of the main reasons machinery is able to perform at peak efficiency. Varying in size, shape, and material, gaskets are compressed between two joining components to create a seal, while compensating for materials unable to interlock on their own due to imperfect surfaces. Gaskets can be as simple as the rubber O-ring in a hose ... (Read More)

Organize Your Tool Collection with DIY Foam Inserts

At the top of the list of the most confounding household mysteries, along with lost socks and disappearing TV remotes, is how the tool we need always seems to be the only one missing from its drawer or chest. Whether a wrench is MIA or the screwdriver you want is buried under a bird’s nest of metal and plastic, it’s maddening to waste 30 minutes looking for a tool that you need for 30 seconds of work. The issue ... (Read More)

Protect Sensitive Electronics with Anti-Static Foam

Any person concerned with the security of goods being shipped or stored understands the importance of appropriate packaging. Not only is opening a box to find a damaged item a disappointment, poorly packed items result in unnecessary costs to both buyers and sellers. Using foam is one of the best ways to make sure something leaves a box in its original condition. Certain products though, may require an extra degree of protection that standard foam is unable to provide. ... (Read More)

Polyethylene Foam: Its Uses, Characteristics, and Varieties

With versatility that makes it the perfect product for a multitude of projects, polyethylene is one of the most utilized but least recognized foam materials on the market. While polystyrene is known for its use in cups and insulation and the soft, and squishy feel of polyurethane foam is something everyone is familiar with, polyethylene is often a forgotten material. But from packaging and flotation devices, to masonry supplies and shock absorbers,  it’s hard at work around us every ... (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. Sending non-delicate items with these materials is an excellent way to get something from point A to point B cheaply. However, when faced with fragile goods, the packaging of a product becomes more stressful. 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)

Examining Foam Density, Weight, and Firmness Characteristics

In business and industry, words are frequently taken from everyday vernacular and re-defined to serve a specific purpose. These niche languages can unintentionally mislead or confuse people who are familiar with the common meanings of words and phrases, but not an industry’s jargon. Compared to other industries, foam is relatively uncomplicated and easily understood, but at Foam Factory, Inc., we feel it is important to clarify a few misnomers and assumptions about foam and foam products to help individuals ...
