So what is foam made of? Foam is a substance that is formed by trapping many gaseous bubbles in a liquid or solid consisting of polydisperse gas bubbles separated by draining films. But lets not get too technical; today lets just talk about characteristics and applications because it’s the applications that make working with foam a little different.
Then there is polyurethane or open-cell foam or reticulated foam; the gas pockets are all connected with each other. It is easiest to think of open-cell foam as a sponge. It is able to absorb things in the air pockets that it is sharing. It is designed to deliver maximum protection from the least amount of foam. It is lightweight, shatter-proof, flexible, and is not affected by mold, mildew, or bacteria. The foam can be specified at different sizes, densities, or even in sheets. You might be familiar with open cell foam in packaging applications providing cushion / protection while the particular product is in transit.
