Closed Cell Foam

Closed cell foam products suitable for home use through to commercial and industrial foam applications.

Closed cell foams encompass Flexible Foam, Semi-Rigid Foam and Rigid Foam types. Because of their stable, closed cell structure, all of these products are effective thermal insulators in sheet form. The high thermal resistance of trapped air in the foam cells makes closed cell foam sheets and boards effective barriers to transmission of heat and cold.

Flexible and Semi-Rigid Foam

Flexible and semi-rigid closed cell foams can be grouped into three main categories: Polyethylene (EPE Foam, PE and XPE), Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) and Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR). These foams are flexible, elastic, light weight, buoyant (EPE excepted), and durable, making them useful for purposes including thermal insulation, shock, and vibration dampening and cushioning, as well as acoustic sound attenuation. See our Information Page on our Closed Cell Flexible Foams.

Rigid Foam

The family of rigid closed cell foams includes Polystyrene (both EPS and XPS), Rigid Polyurethane (PUR), and Phenolic Foam. These rigid foam products are commonly used for thermal insulation applications, and are often cut to form shapes for moulds and formwork block-outs.
