    A 12” cube weighs 2 pounds-it requires 50-65 pounds to depress a 4” thick block 1”

3.8 PCF (pounds per cubic foot)

  • 3.8 PCF, means, a cubic foot density as follows:

    A 12” cube weighs 3.8 pounds-it requires 60-80 pounds to depress a 4” thick block 1”

 

Anti-Static Foam Specifications

Purpose

  • To protect against static discharge

Types

  • Polyethylene – anti static

    Designed to extract static charge from an item and dissipate charge off surface of foam by use of a Surfactant (a chemical applied to foam at time of manufacturing)

  • Polyurethane – Conductive

    Carbon filled; designed to extract static charge and conduct away from item

 

Ethafoam (Polyethylene) Specifications
