We stock many types of foam to pad packages for shipping. Packing foam can be cut into custom shapes, to your custom dimensions, or convoluted (cut like an egg crate). We also offer closed cell packing foam on another page. All sales of packing foam are final.
Packaging foam cut in egg crates are produced in pairs. (The video shows how they are cut.) If you order a quantity of one you will likely receive half the size you need and the edges will not line up. We suggest you order the exact size in pairs. Maximum sheet size varies according to the foam chosen (the smallest is 54" × 76"). Call for sheet sizes.

Random foam may not arrive in the dimensions you have ordered. This foam varies in color, and usually has a density of 1.1 lb/ft3 with a 34 ILD—often it is better.
