Plank Packaging Foam

Ethafoam® is a closed-cell, polyethylene foam that demonstrates high levels of resilience, strength, and durability. As a component material, it is ideally suited for applications requiring shock absorption, vibration dampening, insulation, buoyancy, and damage protection. Because it demonstrates outstanding recovery characteristics and unparalleled cushioning protection against repeated impacts, polyethylene plank packaging foam is the ideal material for protecting even the most fragile items, including the preservation of historic and highly valuable items. Also, it offers excellent abrasion resistance to protect highly polished and painted surfaces.

In addition to its superior protection qualities, Ethafoam is resistant to water, chemicals, and flames. It is also offered as an anti-static, military-grade, and recycled-content foam. The fine-cell structure provides a soft-feel surface where presentation matters, such as display items. While ideal for cushion packaging, it is often used in a wide range of applications, including recreation, computer, automotive, and construction.

Atlas Foam Products can easily fabricate Ethafoam foam material into complex and innovative packaging design to protect everything from fragile items to heavy-duty dunnage. We are also a top Ethafoam220® supplier and polyethylene plank packaging foam solutions provider in California.
