Pick And Pluck Polyurethane Foam Sheets
Polyurethane sheets, such as pick and pluck polyurethane foam sheets are one of the most diverse ranges of products stocked, supplied and converted by ASG.
Polyurethane materials which are manufactured in many types and grades and supplied as sheets, suited for use in a range of different applications and industries. One such type Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd can offer is pick and pluck polyurethane foam, recognised by its pre-scored ‘cube pattern’ surface.
Sheets of pick & pluck packaging foam are available in several different thicknesses usually at 12mm, 25mm and 50mm and often supplied in multiple layers of sheeting or sets. Pick & Pluck Polyurethane foam is converted from jumbo master blocks which are split down and can be supplied in a choice of large sheets or around 2meters x 1 meter or 1 meter x 1 meter, or pre-cut smaller pads to fit inside cases and boxes as inserts.
Pick and pluck Polyurethane foam sheets can be cut down to bespoke sized sheets to order as all conversion is carried out onsite using our specialist in-house cutting machines, where they can also be laminated to other materials to produce composite sheets, or covered with one of our many foils or self-adhesives to help hold the insert in place.

What Are Pick And Pluck Polyurethane Foam Sheets?
One of the softer grades of Polyurethane available is used for pick and pluck polyurethane sheets, usually Polyether which is perfect for use as packaging, storing and transporting delicate and valuable items safely.
Pick and pluck foams can also be used for transporting electronics as ESD (electro static discharge) safe grades of this foam are also available. Pick and pluck Polyurethane foam sheets are cut from the same jumbo blocks of polyether material as the standard foam slabs and convoluted PU foam, manufactured and supplied with a pre-scored cubes which can be easily picked out to create a secure and protective space for your items to be held in. Pick and pluck polyurethane foam sheets can be taken in full and cut down to size as when required, or alternatively cut down to size.
Why Use Convoluted Packaging Polyurethane Foam Sheets?
Pick and pluck polyurethane foam sheets are often a go to for the production of protective packaging case inserts for a number of reasons.
Firstly the softness of the sheets of material provides cushioning, shock absorption and protection. The design of the foam itself with its pre-scored surface and multiple layer stacking system allows for very obscure shaped items to be fully secured such as cameras and camera parts.
Pick and pluck polyurethane foam sheets are available in a choice of thickness and also with a choice of pluckable square sizes from 1cm to 1 inch, each allowing users to get the best fit for their valuables without the added cost of having to have the holes or spaces cut out using tools or routering machines.
Supplying pick and pluck foam sheets as a set (lid, base and pick & pluck layer) ensures the perfect sandwiching products between the sheets of foam ensuring the safe storage and transport of fragile or valuable items.
Advantages Of Using Pick & Pluck Polyurethane Foam Sheets
Multi-layer pick & pluck polyurethane sets of sheeting are designed and manufactured to make packaging as cost effective and easy as possible, providing a base, ‘lid’ which can be a plain PU foam slab or in the eggbox (convoluted) form and finally the middle layer which has the pluckable cubes, which can not only be picked horizontally, but also vertically which prevents all round movement.
Pick and pluck polyurethane foam sheets are a cheaper alternative to pre-cut or routered case inserts as there are no tooling or labour costs - users can simply measure around their equipment or items and pick out the cubes accordingly to fit. Pick and pluck polyurethane foams can be manufactured in a choice of thicknesses and supplied in a choice of different sets, each with a varying number of layers (depending on the size of the product being packed and the depth required). The raw material itself is manufactured in master blocks or buns, which are split down to thicknessed and scored before being cut down into pre-cut pads to fit inside your case.
Pick and pluck polyurethane foam sheets are supplied as a set for packaging as they securely sandwich valuable or delicate products between 3 layers of foam, offering cushioning, abrasion resistance and impact protection, items which benefit from being transported in this manner include tools, medical equipment and high-end camera equipment or lighting.
Benefits Of Using Pick & Pluck Polyurethane Foam
- Cheaper alternative to bespoke cut packaging inserts
- Reduces damage in transit, therefore saving money
- Protects from scratches, vibration and impact
- Available in anti-static and flame retardant grades
- Odourless and non-toxic
Different Types of Packaging Foam Available
Most foams can be used for packaging as they will absorb impact, however certain foams are produced with unique features for transporting or storing items safely. Some of the other more popular packaging foams include:
Polyurethane (PU) slabs - A soft protective open-cell foam used to absorb shock, which will quickly recover following any impact or compression. This type of packaging foam is the same material as the convoluted type, still offering protection from scuffs and dents - but without the peaks.
Polyethylene (PE) - A closed cell foam which is more rigid and higher in density making it great for protecting against vibration and shock, being closed cell its ideal for packing items which need to be protected from moisture.
Pick & Pluck Anti-Static - Polyurethane and Polyethylene foams are available in anti-static or static dissipative grades, which are use for transporting electronic products. These foams not only protect items from physical damage, but also from damage which could be caused by static charge.
Convoluted ‘Eggbox’ packaging Polyurethane - This foam is the same material as the PU slabs and the pick & pluck packaging foams, recognised by its convoluted surface consisting of peaks and troughs and if often supplied in pairs to offer support and cushioning on the top and bottom of the package.
