Our products include:
Our products include:
- Flexible Polyurethane / Reticulated
- Polyethylene (Ethafoam)
- Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) -Styrofoam / Beadboard
- Cross-Linked Polyethylene (L-200) - multiple colors in stock) (L-300)
- Flocked Foam (Simulated Velvet many colors available)
This is a low-cost material with predictable performance characteristics in a temperature range of -40° to 250°F. Its particular combination of light weight, cushioning efficiency, cleanliness, and workability makes it most desirable for protection of delicate electronic systems or components.
It is highly resistant to climate changes, is chemically insert odorless and available in wide range of densities and colors; it can be used for multi-cavity cushioning and in flat sheet stock. It provides maximum protection at minimal cost.
Some foams meet MIL-P-26514 specifications
Polyethylene Foam (Ethafoam):
Ethafoam has excellent energy absorption qualities, along with favorable chemical, moisture transmission, and insulating characteristics. It lends itself to fabrication with conventional cutting tools, and by hotwire foaming.
Polystyrene foam (EPS):
EPS is a low density, inexpensive packaging material consisting of polystyrene beads expanded and bonded by heat to form a semi rigid foam. Available in densities ranging from 1 to 2 pounds per cubic feet. EPS is easily shaped by cutting, hotwire forming, or molding.
Flat sheet stock:
Polyurethane, ethafoam, expanded polystyrene (EPS), crosslinked polyethylene, reticulated foam pads and cushions are available in any size up to 120" long by 84" wide depending on material. Dimensional accuracy, on thickness, is maintained to 1/16" based on 1" thickness. No tooling or dies are required.
Wrap-around cushioning of odd shapes not requiring conformity to contour; and as filler in crates.
Any size up to 120" long by 84" wide in thickness for 3/32" to 50" depending on material used.
Polyurethane (Polyester) 2#/Cu. Ft. 4#/Cu. Ft.
Polyurethane (Polyether) 1.1# to 2.7# densities.
(EPS) 1#, 1.5#, 2#, 3#
(ETHA) 1.7#, 2.2#, 4#, 6#, 9#
(Other densities on special request)
Polyurethane Polyester: charcoal, blue (other Colors on special requests)
Polyurethane Polyether: white, charcoal, yellow, pink, blue (other colors on special request)
ETHA: white, charcoal, blue, green, pink

Delivery Usually within 3-5 day ARO
Steel Die Stamping
Dies are made by Atlas foam and remain the property of the customer. Cost of the die is applicable only to the initial order. Dies may be reused at no additional cost thereafter.
Consult with our engineering staff to determine the proper size, and density of material with the most economical production methods. No charge for this service.
Hot Wire Forming
This is an economical method of product cushioning, forming maximum production to the most delicate items. A single block of polystyrene (EPS) is shaped to fit the container, and cavities are cut out to fit each item. Cavities of any depth and configuration can be formed; heavy electrically resistant wire is formed to the appropriate shape, and the heated wire slices cleanly through the material. Templates are used to maintain precision consistency. A variety of densities are available.
Savings are afforded by the elimination of tooling, dies, and molds; at the same time, the individually fitted cavities provide greater protection then could any method of fitting smaller pieces of material around the item. The long life of EPS permits extended reuse of the cushion.
Within reason, there are no limitations on the size of the cushion, depth, and contour of cavities to be formed. We design to your specifications.
Convoluted Polyurethane Foam (Egg Crate Shape)
Convoluted foam is ideal for cushioning a variety of large, small, and odd shaped objects in a single package; the ridges hug the item, preventing movement. This adaptability to different shapes and sizes make it possible to accommodate all the items in a product line in a relatively small number of standard packages. It is usually light in weight, and is flexible enough to wrap around an object if desired.
Available in variety of densities. Some may be certified to MIL-P-26514.
Delivery: 5 days ARO.
Limitations on length, width, and total thickness are dependent on the type of material desired. Consult with your atlas phone salesman for details.
Parts must be ordered in sets. Complete detailed information must be furnished. Two pieces of convoluted foam when nested together will make a set.
Packaging in cushioning Counsel
You are invited to consult with Atlas Foam's design production personnel on any and all cushioning questions. You will find that most problems can be greatly simplified if action is taken at early stages. When this is done requirements can be translated into shop procedures most economically.
Atlas Foam is equipped to produce Prototypes to meet the most exacting requirements. There is no charge for the service with the initial order; on speculative or sample requests, a nominal service charge is applied.
How to order:
Each order is individually quoted. A purchase order covering the complete order with print and specifications for quantity, size, color and density.
"AS RELEASED" orders:
On large volume orders requiring periodic drop shipments, Atlas Foam Will make and maintain all necessary arrangements for production and schedule deliveries.
Atlas Foam will store all dies and production equipment. Dies remain the property of the customer, until called for. A purchase order or other authorization is sufficient for repeat orders.
Polyurethane sheet stock and convoluted foam pads are normally shipped in three days, depending on the size of the order. On orders requiring dies, tooling, or patterns allow 1-2 weeks.
Every order is quoted individually according to the requirements of each job. Every effort is made to quote telephone inquiries the same day.
