Pink Anti-Static Polyurethane Foam Pads
Polyurethane foams are very durable and flexible, used to manufacture a wide range of components including pads, available in various colours, densities and grades for use in different applications and environments.
One popular type is Pink Antistatic Polyurethane foam, sometimes called Pink PU foam, anti-static PU or pink anti-static packaging foam, recognisable by its bright colour and used to protect static sensitive devices. Pink Anti Static Polyurethane foam is manufactured in jumbo blocks which can be split down into sheets of virtually any thickness, from which pads can be cut.
Our Pink anti static polyurethane foam pads are produced on-site using drawings, samples or dimensions supplied by our customers ensuring the final product is to their exact specification. Depending upon the size and quantity of pads required, one of our many presses, bandsaws or CNC machines can be used to manufacture the final product to the highest quality of finish, 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 Pink Anti-Static Polyurethane Foam Pads
When formulating Polyurethane foams, they can be made with a number of additives added to the compound, allowing them to be used in specific applications, one of which include anti-static agents, which produces a material designed for use as packaging for transporting circuit boards, hard drives and other sensitive electronic equipment.
Pink Anti-static polyurethane pads are made from this open cell foam which are perfect for packing ESD (electrostatic discharge) sensitive components where it serves as protection from physical damage caused by impact or abrasion, but also provides a proactive shield against static discharge. Pink Anti-static PU is dyed pink during the manufacturing process, which enables it to be easily identified, ensuring the incorrect material is not used for packaging sensitive products.
Our pink anti static polyurethane foam pads are all cut and converted in-house meaning we can make bespoke sized products as squares or rectangles with the option of radius corners, and also as circular or oval shaped pads or ‘discs’, in a range of thicknesses and finishes.
Why Use Pink Anti-Static Polyurethane Foam Pads?
When products are handled, packaged and transported, static charges build up caused by friction, human handling or by rubbing against other items in the box.
Pink Anti-static polyurethane foam pads can be not only used as packaging or case inserts for transporting not only fragile or delicate goods, but also items which are electrical and static sensitive which could become unusable if shipped using inadequate packaging.
Customers choose Pink Anti-static polyurethane foam Pads for a number of reasons, mainly it’s static-dissipative properties, but also because of the materials excellent ability to provide cushioning and shock, abrasion resistance and vibration absorption. Pink Anti-static foam pads are cut down from rolls or sheets of materials and can be supplied as plain standard sheet or slab, scored to produce a ‘pick & pluck’ grade and even split using specialist machinery to form convoluted ‘eggbox’ foam pads.
Advantages Of Using Pink Anti Static Polyurethane Foam Pads
Pads made from Pink Anti Static Polyurethane foam can offer many advantages to users, offering a number of desirable properties including softness, excellent strength, shock absorbency and flexibility.
Pink Anti-static polyurethane foam is manufactured in master blocks, which can be split down into sheets and then cut down into smaller pads to order, in many thicknesses and also as pick & pluck or convoluted variants. Pads can be cut or pressed to create perfectly fitting profiles and case inserts in order to fully secure and protect the products from movement, impact and most importantly damage from static charge, which in return saves customers and end-users money on having to replace damaged products.
Applications in which anti static polyurethane pads can be found used include packaging electrical and surgical equipment, cameras, circuit boards, HVAC and automotive insulation, etc.
Benefits Of Using Pink Anti-Static Foam
- Soft material offers cushion and protection of abrasion and impact
- Available in different forms to perfectly fit around awkward shaped objects
- Saves money - as protects goods from physical and static damage
- Pink in colour so easily recognisable
- Can be cut down to size to provide the perfectly fitting case insert
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 - Polyurethane and Polyethylene foams are available in standard, anti-static or static dissipative grades, which are used 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. Convoluted Packaging PU foam is also available in a Pink Antistatic grade.
