Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) Closed Cell Foam Parts
EVA Foam Fabrication
When transiting materials from one location to another, jostling and impact forces are often unavoidable. However, you can minimize that impact by utilizing highly cushioned shock-absorbing EVA foam from Foamcraft USA.
Is EVA Foam Open or Closed Cell?
EVA foam, or ethylene-vinyl acetate, is a closed-cell foam made from blended copolymers of ethylene and vinyl acetate. It has a high level of chemical cross-linking, which results in a semi-rigid product with a fine uniform cell structure. This durable and resilient foam has a wide array of benefits, which include:
- moisture resistance
- chemical repellency
- noise absorption
- vibration absorption
- impact absorption
- weather resistance
- heat and acoustical insulation
- shock absorption
- high strength to weight ratio
What Is EVA Foam Used For?
Available in a variety of custom densities and thicknesses, EVA foam is used for packaging, footwear, appliance, sports and outdoors, electronic, marine, automotive, and healthcare product manufacturers. Common applications include:
- footwear insoles
- expansion joints
- exercise mats
- wakeboard boots
- waterski boots
- backpack and shoulder bag straps
- packaging foam
- helmets and gloves
- fishing rods
- biomedical drug delivery
- hockey pads
- bicycle saddles
- orthotic supports
- vehicle headliners
- life jackets
- and many other applications
As a custom EVA foam fabricator, Foamcraft USA utilizes high-quality EVA foam that is made of a closed-cell cross-linked foam known as a bun. The chosen mixture of foaming additives and catalysts determines its density, hardness, color, and resilience properties. The bun is then cut into sheets of a specified thickness or fabricated into the desired shape, piece, or block.
EVA Foam Cutting Capabilities
Foamcraft offers a variety of cutting methods for EVA foam including rotary die-cutting, water jet cutting, saw cutting, kiss cutting, and more.
