More About Ethafoam
We supply the foam in long sheets cut to thickness as required. It can be fabricated into a vast range of shapes, profiles and component pieces.
The foam has excellent water resistance and is impervious to most chemicals. It is not abrasive and performs consistently over a wide range of temperatures.
Manufactured as a semi-rigid extruded plank in a solid single thickness up to 100mm. It is not made by laminating thin sections of material together. The result is a strong long-lasting product.
Ethafoam is a versatile product and suits a variety of applications. Used for cushioning and impact protection, many road and equipment cases are fitted with Ethafoam. It’s ideal for fabricating into protective cushion pieces for freighting computers, monitors and other sensitive goods.
Popular for the handling and conservation of historical and valuable items, Ethafoam has proven to be chemically inert. Our customers who choose Ethafoam for the storage, processing and transportation of precious items include The Australian Museum, National Gallery of Victoria, Museum of Contemporary Art and MONA in Tasmania.
