Leading Military Foam Companies

Military grade foam is used in the military as well as homeland security, aerospace and defense. Typically, military foam is used for applications like: military equipment packaging such protective cases and foam inserts. They also provide support to military aviation via: shock absorption, wing stiffening, fuel tank protection and noise elimination. Read More…

Military Foam The term “military foam” refers to any foam product that has been made to military standards. A few of the materials that may be made military grade include: polyethylene foams, crosslinked foams, rigid or flexible polyurethane foams and polyolefin foams.

The applications for foam fabricating are only limited by one’s imagination; that is our slogan at American Excelsior. We are a foam supplier who offers many different foam cushions & foam padding for over a dozen industries.

Military foam products are instrumental to keeping sensitive equipment, weapons systems and tools safe and secure. They do so by providing cushioning, acoustic control and vibration dampening, and preventing jostling. If fabricators fabricate them to do so, military foam parts can even offer flame retardancy.

Some of the materials used most often when compression molding foam include: PVC foams, cross-linked polyethylene foams, open cell urethane foams and ethyl vinyl acetate (EVA) foams. Composite foams are also available; these feature other materials, like: pressure-sensitive adhesives, polyolefin films, woven fabrics and medical grade coatings. Compression molded foams such as these offer a variety of advantages, such as (depending on their composition): insulation, impact resistance, vibration resistance, flame retardance, chemical resistance, tensile strength and sterility. Some foams can even be designed to meet FDA or Mil-Spec standards.

Compression molding foam is great way to go for many reasons. First, because the process is so simple, it is relatively inexpensive. In addition, it does not require much, if any, secondary tooling. That’s because it does not produce waste like sprues or runners. Third, compression molding foam is suitable for very large parts that require intricacies. To learn more about compression molding foam, and if this process is right for you, reach out to a trusted parts fabricator.
