Foam Pads: Just The Tip Of The Iceberg When It Comes To Uses For Foam

To ascertain which type of foam is going to suitable for a certain application, manufacturers need to look at their cell structure, which can either be open or closed. To put it in the simplest terms, foam of all kinds is formed by trapping pockets of gas in a solid or liquid substance. In an open-cell foam, the pockets connect with each other to form a porous structure, making it ideal to turn into a sponge or something which needs to be absorbent, as water will be able to flow freely through the structure, while a closed-cell foam separates its pockets of gas from each other for added strength.

Depending on whether it has an open or closed-cell structure, the foam can be hard, soft, malleable or resistant which makes it an incredibly flexible material that can be used in the manufacture of many products that are often utilised around the home. All foam is created by a combination of machines and chemical processes. There is no natural version that can be used in products that require it, but these machines are capable of churning out as much foam as is needed to meet demands of customers and manufacturers around the world.

One of the most familiar everyday uses for foam is to mould it into the polystyrene peanut shapes that are often packed around fragile things in order to protect them while they are being shipped, but foam is also often used in furniture, specifically in chair and sofa armrests which need to be soft but also need to retain their shape after an hour or two of an arm being pressed into them.

Foam pads and thicker foam blocks for furniture such as kitchen chairs and sofas can be purchased so that customers can revitalise pieces that might be feeling a bit less comfortable today than they were five years ago; all they have to do is slide the pad into the relevant cushion cover for maximum comfort once again. Foam is also a key component of child car seats and highchairs.

In addition, foam products can fulfil a number of minor functions around the house. Tie hanger covers can be made out of foam in a bid to prevent thin-strapped clothing from sliding off hangers and remaining in a crumpled heap on the floor until you next open your wardrobe. They are mass-produced, often sold in packs of a hundred, and are easily affordable. Foam is also often inserted into gardening gloves and moulded around the handles of gardening equipment in order to protect hands from blisters and stiffness after a day spent pottering around in the garden. Is there anything it can't do?

Well, yeah, obviously there are some things that foam isn't suitable for but it's used in so much already that it seems only fair to let other materials get a look-in. Foam - adaptable, reliable and easy to manufacture. Is it the perfect material?
