Foam Types

There are many different types of foam available in the market and it can be difficult to know what to choose for a certain application. This page is a resource to learn about the different types of foam offered here at FoamOnline and their primary applications. We also provide the datasheet specifications for foam, containing the technical information about the characteristics and safe storage for foam sold here at FoamOnline. We make it easy for our consumers to order the correct foam type for their projects.

Polyurethane Foam


Polyurethane Foam is the original foam that subsequent foam types introduced to the market are based on. Charcoal, Dry Fast, High Density, High Resilience, Lux, Memory, and Rebond foam are all open-cell Polyurethane foams. What differentiates these foams are their density. When foam is within a density range, it gets one of these designations.

This page is specifically for Commerical Grade Polyurethane foam. At a density of 1.2 lb. per cubic ft. it is best used for packaging and shipping, mattress toppers, dog beds, costumes, arts and crafts, and other recreational applications. Thick pieces will develop “sink” areas after a short time and will often not return to their original form over time.
