Foam: of Soda Volcanoes and Transport Packages

By Trenton Fuller Subscribe to RSS | May 31st 2012 | Views:

Take a bottle of soda and a piece of Mentos, drop the candy into the soda, and stand back as quickly as possible. You should see a jet of foam shoot up as a result of the reaction between the carbon dioxide in the soda and the small pores in the Mentos. This is your common foam in a nutshell.

However, as evident in various applications, foam does more than just make soda erupt like a miniature soda volcano. Take foam packaging, for example; it’s no soda volcano, but it’s a kind of foam that allows the safe transport of fragile goods anywhere. It’s a recent invention that has changed the way people pack their stuff forever. What exactly does foam packaging have that people everywhere find very effective?

Here’s a rundown on foam: it’s the soft substance formed when you put gas into a liquid or solid. Foam is the result of two media that do not generally come together, called dispersed media, as it forms an entirely new product. Foam packaging is an example of closed-cell foam; it’s not designed to take in water, unlike open-cell foam such as a bath sponge.

Due to the softness of the material, foam packaging is an effective impact buffer, notably when parcels are dropped by accident. Foam can outline the shape of the item being ferried thanks to its fluid flexibility. As a result, items protected by foam rarely nudge or move even under moving and dropping conditions.

In addition to its fluid flexibility, foam in place packaging can downsize the box or container of the item being carried. By packing the foam as much as possible to fit in the smallest boxes or containers, it will translate to huge savings in packaging materials. Smaller packages mean fewer expenses on shipping as well as easier handling. Many industries are shifting to foam packaging for shipping their goods, particularly electronics and automotive factories.

There are different kinds of foam: one can entertain you with a soda fountain; the other packs your items safely and snugly. Foam packaging is emerging as a trend in the modern industry, making sure the transported goods remain intact. Expect foam packaging to dominate every box and container in the future.

You can find books about foam and their environmentally friendly packaging uses online. Google Books at is the best place to start. Otherwise, ask your local foam packaging supplier about its benefits.
