Shipping fragile products safely is one of the key concerns for manufacturers and suppliers dealing with them.

Types of Packing Foam Sheets
The following are the types of packing foam sheets provided by BlueRose Packaging.
- Polyurethane Foam Sheets: These foam sheets are crafted from polyurethane, thus, the name. The sheets have open cells which lend it immense flexibility. These foam sheets are used as filling material while packaging fragile products. The sheets fill the voids in packaging and they help prevent products from moving around. The open cells help absorb vibration and shocks. The sheets are soft, still, they can prevent scratches, growth of mildew, and so on. This factor makes them an ideal choice for shipping products that are sensitive to moisture, shocks, and vibrations.
- Polyethylene Foam Sheets: These foam sheets are used for packaging fragile objects. Unlike polyurethane foam, the packing foam sheets of this type comprise closed cells. This assures effective protection for fragile items. The cells also improve the shock and vibration absorption properties of these sheets.
- Anti-static Foam Sheets: Most electronic products that we use today are vulnerable to damage if wrapped in any regular packaging. The anti-static foam absorbs vibrations, shocks, and tackles other challenges that may pose problems during electronic item packaging. Anti-static foam sheets not only help protect electronic products from damage but also minimizes the risk of shock to humans who may be handling these products. The anti-static foam also offers excellent cushioning to products, further reducing the threat of damages.
- Customized Foam Sheets: We understand that every packaging requirement is different. Although standard foam packaging materials may work for some applications, the products in unusual sizes and weight may need special consideration. This is where we can help. We can provide customized packing foam sheets in any length and specifications.
Benefits of Using Packaging Foam Sheets
There are several benefits of choosing packing foam sheets over other packaging materials. The following are a few prominent benefits that many of our clients have already attested after the use.
- Lightweight and Cost-effective: Foam is a lightweight material and does not add to the weight of a product it is being wrapped around. This benefits manufacturers to save on freight charges if they are shipping to distant locations. The foam sheets are added to fill the void between products.
- Effective Protection: Although foam is a lightweight and soft material, it can protect fragile items from chipping, scratching or any other type of damage that may be inflicted during shipping. Foam sheets are also used for packaging large and heavy duty items. The packaging assures excellent impact protection without adding to its weight.
- Most Preferred for Shipping Electronics: We regularly process big orders of pink foam packaging foam sheets, which are used for shipping electronic parts. Made of anti-static material, these sheets protect electronics from shocks, vibrations, and static electricity during shipping. The closed cells in foams add to their vibration and shock absorption properties.
- Clean: Many packaging materials are known to leave lint, fiber, dust, or printed ink on a product. However, the foam doesn’t leave any of them on the product. It does not create any mess on the floors during unpacking the product. This property makes it one of the cleanest packaging materials available for consideration.
- Recyclability: Foam sheets are made from polyethylene material, which is a recyclable material. So, both types of users – sender and recipient can send these packaging materials to nearby recycling centers after their use.
- Reusability: Foam sheets do not tear easily, and if stored properly can be used multiple times before discarding. This helps reduce the waste that other packaging materials create.
Frequently Asked Questions on Packaging Foam Sheets
We have been delivering packing foam sheets for several years now and our clients are extremely happy with the quality and their utility. This section comprises general queries that some clients often ask before buying these sheets. The answers to these queries have been included here for easy reference.
- Are all packing foam sheets ideal for packaging electronics and fragile items?
Yes, all packaging foam sheets available with us are ideal for packaging fragile items. However, we recommend users to specifically choose anti-static sheets when it comes to packaging electronics. These sheets can prevent shocks and electric discharge often associated with other regular packaging materials.
- Do you provide trimmed foam sheets?
Generally, trimmed sheets are provided only when it involves lamination. This is usually done to avoid overlap formed during the lamination process. However, we can provide trimmed sheets on the customer request at an extra charge. This is because trimming them to your exact requirements is a time-consuming process.
- How much foam sheet is needed to pack my product?
We can guide you on this once we know the exact product being packaged. The foam sheet is often used to package the material as well as fill void spaces within the box. So, you can keep the product in the sample box and shake it gently to identify void spaces. If there are void spaces, you will hear sounds. This means more foam sheet is needed for packaging the product. You can experiment with it until no sound is heard.
