Charcoal Regular is a foam type that offers great cushioning for packaging applications. This foam provides a darker surface color that keeps it looking cleaner if it gets any dirt on it. In addition, this foam hides the yellowing that normally occurs in white or light colored foams. Charcoal Regular foam is practical for packaging, and it will maintain a professional appearance for quite some time. This foam can also be used for other applications, including protective padding in your home or entry level soundproofing, such as an engine cover, provided that it does not come into contact with hot exhaust fumes, flames, or oil.

Custom Cutting is Available!
Need something other than our standard sheet sizes? We can cut custom sizes of Charcoal Regular to fit your exact needs. See Charcoal Foam Custom Cut for details.

Resources Notes

Manufacturing Tolerances
Products may carry a size tolerance depending on the style and job. Please see our Tolerance Table.

Standard Sheet Sizes/Quality
Standard sheets of foam are cut slightly larger than the listed size to compensate for shrinkage during packaging, transit, and delivery. Sheets may contain rough edges. Any yellowing/discoloration present is a byproduct of exposure to light during production and manufacturing and does not represent a flaw, damage, or defect in the material.

Product came quickly and suited my needs very well. I used the 1” thick version to line plywood boxes so I can safely transport lightweight sensitive electronics. Regular firmer foam is too firm and doesn’t have any give when used with light weight objects, but this stuff worked perfectly. I used an electric carving knife to cut it, which cut just fine and much better than a razor knife. It is hard to cut perfectly straight lines because the foam has so much give, but that’s on me and my lack of skill not the product itself. If I was going to do a high volume of cutting I would seriously consider having them do it. I used 3M spray 77 and applied a coat to both the plywood and the foam, and it is holding quite well. I can pull it apart if I really try hard, but the foam usually rips before the glue lets go. For my use, the spray 77 works fine and is much cheaper/easier to get than the spray 74.

Charcoal foam

I ordered the charcoal foam 3” thick and it was the regular one. The pics online of the foam appeared a little darker than what I received. I was hoping it would be a darker shade or better yet black. It’s a darker gray which is fine. Upon letting it air I felt it and messed with it and it was soft but with a slight hardness. Slightly off the online description. Haven’t tested yet on fragile items but it will work for sure packaging. Overall, I am pleased with the product and will definitely buy again.
Great product!

We laser cut these for our custom Jeep gauge packaging on our large CNC laser. Its hard to do, but if you have the right machines and fixturing, this foam cuts like a dream. Check out some of that work at!

Doing what I wanted it to do.
David Prutzman | December 18th, 2019
The foam I ordered arrived a day early and I followed the instructions to allow the foam to expand back to its original size for 24 to 48 hrs.Then using an exacto knife I cut out the pieces I need to line the drawers on my work/reloading bench. The foam I used is 1 in. and I put in 2 layers so that I can trace and cut shapes for tools.
Great Product. Quick Delivery.
