Jer-Den Plastics offers a variety of manufacturing services, including foam filling, to provide the quality rotational molded parts and finished products with all of the features you need – rapidly and affordably. As a “value-added” supplier, we can lower your costs – and reduce your time to market- with our efficient in-house foam filling services.
Foam fillers have a broad range of applications in the plastics manufacturing industry. Foam filling is a unique manufacturing process consisting of “sandwiching” foam between two layers of plastic skin.
Foam filling can make a product stronger, as well as add a variety of desired additional properties to the product – depending upon what type of foam is used. For example, we pressure fill marine products (such as markers and mooring buoys) using two part marine grade polyurethane foam to add both strength and buoyancy. Similarly boats, kayaks and canoes are often foam filled for the same reasons.
Pre-insulated polyurethane pipes, on the other hand, are filled with foam that has insulating properties necessary for proper temperature control. Still other foam fillers – for example those used in housing construction components – are engineered to provide barrier protection against external noise and vibration.
