EVA Foam

Sheets of blue EVA Foam

EVA foam is a type of closed-cell foam that is manufactured using Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) and blended copolymers. The foam is chemically cross-linked, resulting in a smooth, non-abrasive sheet that is suitable for use in many situations. Benefits of EVA foam include:

  • Resilience to repeated compressions
  • Impact and vibration-absorbing
  • Weather and chemical resistance, including splash resistance to oils and fuels
  • Buoyancy with low water absorption
  • Suitability for thermo-forming and thermo-moulding

More About EVA Foam

Spongy EVA foam as an exercise or camping mat.

We offer densities ranging from 30 to 400 kg/m3. As density increases, firmness also increases.

EVA and Polyethylene are similar, but EVA is softer and more resilient than Polyethylene. Learn more about the differences between EVA and PE and which might be right for your project in an article by Richard at Metro Foam.

EVA foam is produced by moulding, which results in a sheet of closed-cell foam known as a “bun”. The maximum length, width, and thickness of the bun varies depending on the foam density. We can cut the bun into sheets, blocks, or strips of the desired thickness and size. Furthermore, we have the capability to shape or profile the material as needed.

Sheets of EVA foam in various colours

EVA Foam is an extremely versatile product suiting a broad range of uses and applications. It is an effective replacement for many materials including felt, neoprene, natural rubber, polyurethane foam, PVC foam, wood composites, mineral wool and fibreglass.

One of our customers is The Foot Alignment Clinic who use the foam to create custom orthotics. Another example is Ocean Paddler who we supply with seat pad profiles for canoes and kayaks.
