Tool Foam
Specifications

Firmness

Compressing the foam 25% requires 14 lbs applied per square inch.

firmness demonstration

A baseball weighs just over 5 ounces (0.3 lbs). The 3-inch solid steel sphere weighs 4.0 lbs. The foam compresses very little under either object.

Density

The foam weighs 3 lbs per cubic foot, but the small cell size results in a higher firmness than other 3-pound foams.

Cell Size

The cells (bubbles) in our tool foam average under 0.020 inches in diameter. This makes the foam firmer and gives it a solid appearance.

Temperature

The maximum recommended temperature of the material is 220 degrees Fahrenheit. The foam expands when hot, so cutting is best done near room temperature.
