Characteristics of Polyether Foam

Polyether foam, also known as Ether, is a flexible, open-cell type of polyurethane foam that has a near-infinite amount of applications due to the following characteristics:

  • Compressibility
  • Cushioning
  • Energy absorption
  • Fabricatibility
  • Flexibility
  • Insulating
  • Light-weight
  • Low thermal conductivity
  • Low water vapor transmission
  • Mildew-resistance
  • Resiliency
  • Sound absorption
  • Vibration dampening

Polyether Foam

In addition to fabricating polyether foam to custom designed specifications, New England Foam stocks polyether foam in bun forms, densities ranging from 1 to 4 pounds per cubic foot (PCF) & those colors most requested: white, yellow, pink, red, green, purple, blue, gray, black & charcoal.

Additional densities & custom colors are available upon request.

Anti-microbial, anti-static, conductive &/or electrostatic dissipative (ESD) types of polyether foam are also available upon request.

Primary Applications for Polyether Foam

Polyether foam is utilized in an abundance of industries due to the materials’ ease of fabrication¬†and low cost.

Polyether foam’s protective & cushioning properties make it the ideal material for packaging applications.

Polyether foam’s inherent comfort, support, & resiliency make it the clear choice for the medical, apparel, sports and leisure industries.

Manufacturing Polyether Foam

Polyether foam is manufactured by mixing polyether polyols with catalysts & a blowing agent, forming a free-rising, foamy froth that solidifies within minutes resulting in a slabstock bun of polyether foam ready for fabrication.

It is during this manufacturing process that flame retardant additives can be introduced to meet various fire code standards, as well as anti-microbial, anti-static, conductive &/or electrostatic dissipative (ESD) additives.

Polyether Foam vs. Polyester Foam

In applications where the polyurethane foam will come into contact with a liquid-based solution, the polyurethane foam should be manufactured with polyether-based polyols.

In applications where the polyurethane foam will come into contact with gases, such as oxygen, nitrogen &/or carbon dioxide, the polyurethane foam should be manufactured with polyester-based polyols.
