Secure packaging is crucial when a product is transported or shipped to ensure it reaches the consumer without any damages. A product before being packed in its normal cardboard package is tied in a packing foam roll and sealed. The packing foam is made from low density polymer, usually styrene, and is widely used in packaging of fragile or breakable items such as electronic appliances, chips, glassware, and so on. At BlueRose Packaging, we provide packing foam rolls in different lengths and types. We offer customized as well as standard packing foam rolls, which helps you choose based on the type of product. Our anti-static packing foam rolls secure and cushion all the sensitive electronic items.
Types of Packing Foam Rolls Provided by BlueRose Packaging
At BlueRose Packaging, we specialize in a wide range of packing foam rolls. The following are a few popular ones among them.
- Polyethylene: This is a closed-cell foam, which can resist rot, mildew, mold, as well as bacteria. Polyethylene foam rolls are more appropriate for packaging items that have low fragility. However, it can also be used for packaging extremely fragile items. We can provide polyethylene foam in different thicknesses and densities to meet your application requirements.
- Polyurethane: This foam has an open cell construction and is widely used for various applications that require protective packaging. Polyurethane foam is ideal for packaging products that are light and small, and stand chances of damage due to shocks, vibrations, and other factors. We can provide polyurethane foam rolls in different firmness and densities to meet your application requirements.
- Expanded Polystyrene (EPS): The foam is known for its closed cell construction and is often chosen for applications that require durable, lightweight, and thermal insulating packaging. The packaging foam can be used for void fill, cushioning, and offers immense protection to the products.
- Anti-Static Foam: As the name suggest, this is the special type of foam with anti-static properties. This foam can absorb electronic shocks, and protects both the product and user. It is commonly used for packaging delicate electronic items. The foam is lightweight, flexible, durable, and offers secure and comfortable packaging to items stored inside.
- Customized Foam Rolls: We believe that no packaging requirement is the same. While there are standard foam rolls available, customizing is required in case packing products with odd shapes, heavy weight, or very small ones. We can customize in terms of length, size, and other specifications to suit your exact requirement.

You can either give them to a recycling center or reuse at home to pack the stuff you need to courier. You can use these to store jewelry or wrap unused glassware.

You may opt for polyethylene, polyurethane, expanded polystyrene, and anti-static rolls depending on your application requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions on Packing Foam Rolls
We understand the importance of choosing the right packaging material for any application. Below are some questions on packaging foam rolls that our experts often answer to buyers who may be looking for quality packaging solutions.
- Can I use foam packaging rolls for packaging fragile electronics and computer circuits?
One of the key uses of any packaging roll is offering cushioning and protection to the product wrapped within. Although polyurethane, polyethylene, and EPS foam is used for packaging certain electronic parts, we do not generally recommend them for computer circuits and related parts. This is because they may dissipate static electrical charges. It is always recommended to choose anti-static foam for packaging computer circuits.
- Can I use these packing foam rolls for packaging exceptionally large or small products?
Yes, you can use these packing foam rolls for packaging objects of any length. You can use them for packaging furniture, as well as smallest items like pieces of jewelry.
- What are the common sizes of packing foam rolls available with you?
We can provide packing foam rolls in 1/16 inch to ½ inch thickness. They can be provided in gridded and layered pattern in various lengths and thicknesses. Thicker foam rolls are used to package large appliances as they assure impact resistance and thin foam for small objects.
