Advantages of Foam Molded Parts

Foam Molding is a process that produces parts that are lightweight, impact resistant, and very strong. There are many benefits of molded foam parts. At Roto Plastics we use Polyethylene (PE) and Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate (EVA) foams, which have multiple applications for a variety of products. Foam molded parts are excellent for many high liability markets where safe, trusted parts are a requirement.

Uses of Molded Foam

Molded foam parts have many uses, such as athletic helmet padding, body padding, orthotics, specialized therapeutic padding, and medical padding. Molded foam is also used in packaging, floatation devices, and appliances.

What We Do

At Roto Plastics, we mold a variety of cross-linked Polyethylene (PE) and Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate (EVA) foams ranging in density from 2-12 lbs./ft cu. We can mix and match densities, which results in a cost effective, customized product. Roto Plastics also skives to exact thickness, so that each molded foam piece is of superior quality.

We understand our clients require a high cosmetic look, smooth feel, and resilience in their products. That's why we laminate colors, apply logos and other identifying materials before or after molding, to give our customers just what they want. Traceability is made simple with computer generated serial numbers printed directly on parts.

Don't worry about volume. We can run just a few pieces, or tens of thousands of compression molded foam parts. Our in-house Quality Systems, Design Center, and Tooling Department ensure quality foam product our clients need.
