Picking the Right Material For Your Custom Foam Inserts

Here are some of the materials that can be used for your custom foam inserts.

People use custom cases to maximize the protection they get for the items they’re transporting. If that protection isn’t enough, some people go the extra mile and add custom foam inserts to their custom cases. Custom foam inserts can be the deciding factor determining whether or not your items get to their destination safely. Naturally, you want to be sure you get the best foam inserts you can find to maximize the protection you have. Custom foam inserts can be made from many materials, and the material you choose directly influences the protection you receive. Here are some of the materials that can be used for your custom foam inserts.

Polyethylene Foams

This material is lightweight, making it an easy choice for people who don’t want any difficulty fitting it inside of their custom cases. At the same time, you still get high-quality material going with polyethylene foam. It’s durable and capable of providing strong protection for your case’s interior.

It won’t be susceptible to mold, rotting, bacteria, or moisture, and it comes with great insulating properties that make it capable of withstanding a wide range of conditions.

Cross-Linked Polyethylene Foams (XLPE)

Cross-linked polyethylene foam inserts are known not just for being durable, but also for having great visual appeal. This makes it easier to make a great impression if you’re trying to highlight products for a client. You still get the same reliable durability that you would get from other foam materials, and it will be guaranteed to last you for many years. This style of foam insert is known for its ability to protect class “A” surfaces. It’s been used by many people in the sales and medical industries due to its ability to keep materials safe and make them look appealing to others.

Polyurethane Foams

Polyurethane foam inserts are best for protecting items that are more fragile and lightweight. This is because of the foam’s outstanding cushioning properties. This is an open-cell foam variant, and it comes in varying densities that vary in cost. Polyurethane foam inserts can be molded into whatever shape you need with minimal difficulty, meaning it will always be able to accommodate the dimensions of the products you’re transporting.
