PDM™ Fabricated Foam

Our fabricated foam options are custom designed for a variety of industry applications such as, automotive, pharmaceuticals, glass and many more. They are constructed utilizing polyethylene (PE), expanded polystyrene (EPS) and expanded polypropylene (EPP) foams. Product protection is the most important consideration of a foam packaging system and is affected by the weight, geometry, fragility, and sensitivity of the equipment or product. The design, amount, and type of foam are important decisions to provide the correct amount of shock protection during drops, vibration protection during transit, and abrasion resistance. A foam packaging solution should also include other benefits such as organizing multiple parts and offering an attractive and easy-to-use product presentation which reflects the quality of your brand.



Polyethylene (PE)

PE is a closed-cell foam that is durable and lightweight with high load bearing characteristics to help reduce packaging costs by using thinner and smaller amounts. Because it is resilient and flexible, it can take repeated shocks and combines vibration dampening and insulation properties with high resistance to chemicals and moisture to protect against damage. Polyethylene’s tear and compressive strength allows manufacturers to reuse it several times, reducing their costs and helping the environment. It is easily fabricated into a variety of shapes and sizes with inexpensive steel rule dies and custom cut patterns.

Expanded Polypropylene (EPP)

EPP is a beaded product that has a low density, high elasticity, low compressibility and a high deformation recovery rate. EPP provides excellent cushioning properties at lower densities, excellent energy absorption and multiple impact resistance. We can design and manufacture custom expanded polypropylene protective packaging in a wide range of densities, shapes, sizes, including profile shapes or 3-D dimensional assemblies, to help protect your product during the rigors of shipping.

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS)

EPS is a rigid, tough and lightweight closed-cell foam. Its advantage lies in the ability to produce products with different densities, and to be made into sheets or blocks of varying thicknesses as needed. It’s an inexpensive material that helps keep shipping costs low. Expanded polystyrene can be used for almost any product, and we can economically and efficiently provide your company with a unique and custom design that will meet your protective packaging needs.
