Foam Packaging

Foam can be designed, cut, and fabricated to hold any shape, making it one of the most convenient and reliable materials used in packaging at Ameripak. Foam packaging is capable of containing and protecting your product while conforming to any unique shape.

At Ameripak, we offer polyurethane foam strips, polyethylene foam end caps, foam materials for medical devices, and so much more. Each foam packaging product comes with a pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) backing for easy adhesion. Isolate and organize your products while ensuring delicate and lightweight items will arrive unharmed. Our staff members will help you identify the correct type of foam packaging required for your shipping needs.

Whatever your packing needs are, Ameripak’s diverse packaging options can help. We look forward to discussing how we can improve your quality shipments with our customizable products and services.

ESD Foam

ESD Foam

Foam materials can also be fabricated to protect ESD sensitive and EDS susceptible parts. ESD foam options include:

  • Conductive (Black) Foam - conductive foam allows electrical parts that have built up a charge to be directed away from the part. "Conductive" means that the foam will carry the charge and therefore direct/divert it away from the part
  • Static Dissipative (Pink/Black) Foam - Dissipative foam is designed to slow the flow or reduce the strength of electrical charge in the part. Dissipative foam is filled with carbon and identified by its black or pink color.
  • Anti-Static (Pink) Foam - this foam is designed to prevent the build-up of static electricity in the part. Anti-Stat foam is chemically doped with an anti-static agent (surfactant) and colored with pink dye for identification.

Material Grades

Material Grades

Foam can be custom made to any size, thickness, and are constructed of various materials:

  • High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)
  • Polyethelene (PE)
  • Laminated Polyethelene (Lam PE)
  • Polyester Foam
  • Polyurethane (PU)
  • Crosslinked Polyethylene (XLPE)
  • Expanded Polypropylene (EPP)
