Foam Sales' EVA Sheets are available in Medium firmness, suitable for most applications, and in a Hard high density version for case inserts and industrial and specialty foam applications.
EVA Sheets are similar in most properties to Polyethylene (PE) Sheets. They have superior elasticity to Polyethylene Sheets, and consequently are also a little more expensive than their PE equivalents.
EVA has superior elasticity to LDPE products, offering higher rebound and resilience in response to compression. Both products have a high level of chemical cross-linking, giving them superior stability, tear strength and waterproof properties compared to (cheaper) non cross-linked Polyfoam EPE products.
In most other characteristics the products are very similar - though EVA is less resistant to grease and solvents than is PE, but is more resistant to UV radiation. EVA has good clarity and gloss (similar to IXPE) with little or no odour.
The closed cell structure of EVA foam makes it impermeable to water and moisture-intrusion, to fungi, bacteria, and to air. Featuring high thermal resistance, it is light in weight, flexible and compressible, and has moderate to good recovery after long-term compression.
EVA foam products are used in domestic and industrial applications for impact absorption and protection, vibration dampening, load deflection, seals and gaskets, thermal and sound insulation, and flotation.
Due to its excellent elasticity and rebound after compression, EVA blocks and sheets are the products of choice to provide the rebound under sprung floors in gymnasiums, fitness, and dance studios. EVA Sheet is also widely used in spa covers, camping mats, pads and padding, yoga blocks, boat fenders and high impact, waterproof seating.
It is competitive with rubber and vinyl in many applications including sandals and shoes, gloves and helmets, for comfort and protection. Being a thermoplastic it can be moulded to shape for pads, saddles and boots, and is used (specialty types) in mouth guards and protective clothing.
