As a highly versatile and useful artificial material, urethane foam has many different uses in modern industry and manufacturing. Best of all, the modern manufacturing process is able to create a wide range of sizes, shapes and densities of urethane foam for virtually any project or application. Even levels of flexibility can be adjusted as necessary for a wide variety of unique uses. From footwear to packaging as well as many other useful applications, urethane type foam is one of the most commonly used man-made materials.

A Very Highly Effective Thermal Insulator

This type of foam is also commonly used for insulation in structures. It can be applied in an attic or roof but is more commonly used in industrial and manufacturing packaging. The foam is unique because it is also considered a very highly effective thermal insulator. The insulation properties of urethane foam are quite impressive and can serve to further protect items that require maximum levels of protection. Modern urethane type foam is safe, highly versatile and highly effective at delivering impressive levels of protection for a wide range of products that are typically packaged and delivered.
