FAQ Series: What Are Your Materials?

Frequently asked questions. As an industry leader, we feel it is important to share our expertise as well as continue to education and inform others of Plymouth Foam’s materials and capabilities. For this reason, we have started this question and answer series.

What Materials does Plymouth Foam Offer?

Our experience includes an impressive number of materials for a variety of  applications. We like to say that we are “material agnostic”. We question everything when we  first evaluate the application. Matching the correct material properties with your project needs is the standard approach for our design team.   Unlike other companies who only have one or two materials and will steer the design into those materials to get the business, we have material options ensuring that the material selected is the best to meet both the product performance and the price targets.  


Here is a list of the material that we can choose from to meet the design needs:


  • Airpop™ Expanded Polystyrene (EPS)
  • Airehide™ Expanded Polypropylene (EPP)
  • Airehide™ Expanded Polyethylene (EPE)
  • Airehide™ Expanded Thermoplastic Urethane (ETPU)
  • Airehide™ CrossLinked Foams
  • ARCEL™
  • Neopor™
  • Polyethylene (PE)
  • Polyurethane (PU)
  • OPP & PET Lamination Films
  • Plastic Corrugated
  • MDF
  • HPL
  • FRP
  • OSB
  • Plywood


Overall, creativity is most evident and appreciated in the final solution. We reward creative thinking in our team and partners to ensure that our process delivers innovative solutions. We take pride in breaking paradigms and challenging the status quo!
