Eggbox Foam Pads
One type of polyurethane eggbox foam pads ASG can offer is manufactured using convoluted packaging polyurethane foam, also known in industry as eggbox foam or egg crate foam, recognised by its convoluted surface consisting of peaks and troughs.
Convoluted packaging foam is available in several different thicknesses (measured from the sheet base to tip of the peak), and usually supplied in pairs especially when they’re being used for packaging purposes. Convoluted packaging PU foam is usually available in thicknesses from 25mm to 50mm thick, but can be made to order at bespoke sizes as the sheets are split down from master blocks, which can then be cut down into pads. Eggbox Foam Pads are produced on-site using drawings or measurements provided by our customers.
In-house production ensures that our high standards are maintained and cost kept low, whilst producing high quality Convoluted PU foam pads consistently. Depending upon the size and quantity of pads required, one of many presses, bandsaws or CNC machines can be used to manufacture the final product, from one off samples to multiple batch runs, which can be supplied as loosely cut parts, or kiss-cut on rolls where a high quantity is required or for use on fast paced assembly lines.

What Are Convoluted Packaging Polyurethane Foam Pads?
Using state of the art in-house machinery ASG can produce Convoluted Eggbox foam pads in any profile you require including squares or rectangles with the option of radius corners, and also as circular or oval shaped pads or ‘discs’, in a range of thicknesses. Polyurethane is available in a diverse range of material variants in both solid and open cell ‘foam’ types - with even the foams having rigid or flexible options.
Convoluted packaging polyurethane foam is one of the softer grades available, often used for packaging, thermal insulation, cushioning and vibration absorption. Convoluted Egg crate foam pads can also be used for storing and transporting electronics as ESD (electro static discharge) safe grades of this foam are also available.
Manufacturing pads in-house even means we can supply them in a plain or self adhesive backed finish and even laminate multiple types of material together to create bespoke and unique variations.
Why Use Convoluted Packaging Polyurethane Foam Pads?
Eggbox foam pads are often used because of its design and softness, where the peaks and troughs ensure items are kept firmly in place, sandwiching products between two sheets of this foam ensures the safe storage and transport of fragile or valuable items.
Convoluted Polyurethane foam sheets are split from blocks and are available in a range of thicknesses, ready to be cut into pads for use with even the most awkwardly shaped cases or enclosures.
Benefits Of Using Convoluted Packaging 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 (ESD) 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.
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.
Pick & Pluck Polyurethane - This foam is the same material as the PU slabs and the convoluted packaging foams, but is supplied as a complete sheet made up of multiple layers, each of which us lightly scored to create removable ‘cubes’ which can be picked out to create the shape suited to fit around the item being transported.
Advantages Of Using Convoluted Packaging Polyurethane Foam Pads
Customers often choose to have their pads made using Convoluted Packaging Polyurethane Foam pads as the material offers many advantages. Firstly the softness and the convoluted surface provides protection from scratches and bumps, holding even the most awkward and irregular of shaped products in place.
Convoluted Packaging Polyurethane is split from master blocks meaning pads can be produced in different thicknesses and also in different grades such as anti-static and flame retardant. Convoluted packaging polyurethane foams are supplied in a number of standard sized sheets up to 2300mm x 2000mm, but as we carry out our own in-house conversion, we can cut these down into pads for use within filtration, HVAC, lighting and packaging applications.
Convoluted Packaging Polyurethane foam eggbox foam pads are often sold in pairs when used for packaging case inserts as they securely sandwich valuable or delicate products between 2 layers of the convoluted 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.
Acoustic convoluted eggbox foam pads are easy to cut using scissors, knives or press tools and can be coated in a choice of self adhesives where required.
