Density – refers to the mass per unit volume of foam material. Higher density foam is firmer, lower density foam is softer.

Colour – Black EPE is not suitable for outdoor or marine use

Foam is light and it’s cellular structure is superior for bonding which makes a great bonding surfaces for glues.

A contact adhesive should be used, closed cell foams are air-tight – meaning the adhesive will not be exposed to air.

Some popular examples depending on the application are: liquid nails, gorilla glue or specific foam glue.

To use foam glue, apply it to both surfaces and let it dry (15 minutes) then stick them together (bonds on contact).

Just about any gap sealant, silicone or caulk can be used in addition with closed cell foam to create a seal for wall, floors, window etc.

Foam can be cut with a trade knife or blade, saws, even bread knifes can also be used.
The application and precision of the cut should be considered before deciding on a cutting method.

Straight edges can be used to assist with creating straight cuts.

*Please note the images of complex cuts like tool trays on our website is done by various CNC machinery at PJ Bowers.
