How Foam Inserts are Made and Why You Need Them

Find out how foam inserts are made and why you’re better off having them in your case.

Foam serves many purposes for transportation. It’s great for holding fragile items in place, such as bottles or delicate medical tools. It provides extra cushion to reduce any damage that would be caused by impact. Foam inserts are custom made to fit the dimensions of whatever items you’re transporting, meaning you get the ideal level of protection. What else makes foam inserts great? Find out how foam inserts are made and why you’re better off having them in your case.

How Foam Inserts are Made

An invaluable benefit of custom foam interiors is that they fit the exact dimensions of whatever they’re protecting. That said, there are different types of foam, and not all are made the same. Knowing which foam to pick is important for preserving your items. Before you buy foam inserts, you have to consider what items they’ll be protecting, as well as the turbulence of travel and how much strain the work environment has on the objects you’re transporting.

Foam inserts get made from various plastics such as polyethylene and polyurethane. The foam might also be designed in a way so that it lowers static. After the foam is selected, it gets designed so that it is ideal for the objects you’re packing. After that, the foam inserts are fixed onto the case, and they are ready to go!

Why Use Foam Inserts?

Foam interiors are great because the properties of foam let it form nearly any shape you need. Because of this flexibility, the inserts can keep products in place unless they are manually removed.

Also, foam is resistant to shock, meaning it can handle a bumpy car ride, a trip on a plane, or some rocky water if traveling by boat. Whatever you put in your custom case will be sure to be safe if you have custom foam inserts to protect them.

Foam interiors are also durable, so they will be sure to last as long as you need them. To damage your foam interiors, you would have to intentionally try to cause damage. Otherwise, they will last you for many years. It’s even possible that your foam inserts will last longer than the case that shelters them.
