EVA Foam

EVA foam, otherwise known as Polyethylene Vinyl Acetate (PEVA), is a closed-cell foam that is often seen in sports equipment, decoration, and flooring. Because of its flexibility and malleability, it can be heated and formed into different shapes. EVA foam is becoming increasingly popular due to its strength, lightness, cost-efficiency, and other qualities like firmness, color, and texture.

Variety of EVA Foam Products

EVA foam is a type of closed-cell foam that is firmer than polyethylene. When you press down on it, it dips and then rises back up. EVA foam is a great product to use outdoors due to its durable construction and UV ray resistance. At Foamiran, we can produce and supply foam as layers, sheets, rolls, and custom-made pieces.EVA foam is a closed-cell foam that is firmer than polyethylene but still softer.

What is the use of EVA foam?

The market is currently in need of foams and EVA materials because of their excellent quality and multiple uses. EVA foam is made by combining vinyl acetate and ethylene through copolymerization. This foam can be used as a replacement for PVC foam, fiberglass, wood composites, and many other materials.

EVA foam offers a wide range of benefits, including its resistance to water and moisture, shock absorption, superior thermal insulation, extended lifespan, and many more. Hence, they are regularly employed in a variety of industries. Many industries use it for shoe flooring, bag interlayers, foam mattresses, packaging, and products such as yoga bricks and diving boards.

EVA, or Polyethylene Vinyl Acetate (PEVA), is a combination of ethylene and vinyl acetate. Vinyl acetate typically accounts for 10-40% of the total weight, with the rest of the material forming the polymer. Three EVA copolymers exist, each with its vinyl acetate content and purpose.

EVA foam’s strength and flexibility make it an ideal material for safety helmets, knee pads, shin guards, and more. EVA foam is protected from UV rays, making it a great choice for products that are used outdoors, like surfboard pads, boat deck mats, and hot tub insulation.

EVA stands for ethylene vinyl acetate, also referred to as PEVA for polyethylene vinyl acetate. EVA is a cushiony rubber foam that has a comparable firmness to yoga mats, but not as spongy.

EVA is usually recognized for its gentle touch, its durability in cold climates, and its ability to resist cracking. Its UV resistance makes it suitable for outdoor use, allowing it to last for a long time. EVA may have an odor similar to vinegar but it will usually go away if it is used outside or exposed to the air.
