Polymer foams are found almost everywhere in today’s modernized world, they have their presence in nearly all end use industries. Polymers have a wide range of applications in several industries and institutes, for commercial as well as domestic purposes.

Flexible polymer foam is generally a mixture of solid phase (present in the form of fillers) and gaseous phase (generally known as a blowing agent). Flexible polymer foams have significant mechanical and physical properties, such as good heat and sound insulation, and the ability to absorb energy, which make them beneficial in packaging and cushioning applications, as compared to solid polymers. A small amount of polymer mass is required to gain maximum volume, due to cellular structure that traps the gas within itself. Flexible polymeric foams can be prepared in any form and shape, such as boards, blocks, slabs, molded shapes or in composite forms, such as metal, fabric, wood, papers, etc.

Need granular data and specific insights that are hard to get?
Flexible polymer foams can be divided into thermosets or thermoplastics, which are further divided into flexible and rigid foam. Wherein thermoplastics can usually be broken down and recycled, and thermosets are relatively hard to recycle, because they are usually heavily cross-linked to each other.

Flexible polymeric foams are formed by a process involving growth of gas bubbles in a polymeric matrix form. When a gas is encapsulated in a dense medium, the resulting product form is known as foam. Foam formation includes multiple stages, namely bubble formation, bubble growth and bubble stability. The foam is expanded by increasing the bubble size before stabilizing the system, and the foam structure changes as per growth of the bubbles. The final finished foam may be rigid or flexible, and the application of both these types are different in a multitude of end use industries. Various types of polymers are used to prepared flexible polymer foams.

Flexible polymer foams are used in mattresses, for furniture and vehicle cushions, and in a wide variety of other applications. Additional applications that use flexible polymer foams are filters, packaging, seals, and sponges. Other polymers, such as PE are also used in these applications. Rigid foams are widely used in applications, such as transportation, packaging, food and drink containers, and furniture.
