Products and Services

Foam material machined & shaped by experts. Think Foam. Think Polyformes.

Polyformes’ versatility as a manufacturer and converter of expanded polyethylene foam has enabled us to produce almost any item in foam. From basic foam sheets, blocks and cut pieces to intricate thermoformings and routings, there is very little that we cannot produce in flexible pe foam materials.

Listed below is just a brief selection of some of the Plastazote and Evazote foam products we manufacture. To see other examples and in other foam materials, e.g. Ethafoam, Stratocell and Microlen microcellular foam, please look at the polyethylene foam Markets pages, and also at the Processes page.

If you have a product or design in foam that you would like us to look at for feasibility and pricing, please contact us.
