Looking for foam

Recommended Posts

Hi Hans, I'm not a rigger, I don't know what foams are used in containers.

But when I recently made new shoulderstraps for a backpack, Evazote foam was recommended to me for that purpose. It is a type of closed cell polyethylene foam, very wear resistent, durable and resilient and is available in several densities. (Some camping sleeping mats are made from Evazote.) Is this the type of foam you're after?

Ok, I hadn't checked the forum for a while.
I had quite a few recommendations and the EvaZote foam is what I would need.
Now the problem is that I should have to go to a supplier to actually see and hold a sheet of Evazote so I can decide what thickness to go with.
At over 50$ a piece it's a bit to expensive to just buy 4 different sizes just to see if one is suitable for making my own container :o)

extremtextil.de really seems to be the place to buy this stuff.(for me)
