ARPLANK Direct supplies leading foam fabricators and manufacturers with high-quality expanded polyethylene (EPE) and expanded polypropylene (EPP) foam planks. Our expanded bead foam products are durable, cost-efficient, and easy to fabricate, making them the ideal choices for product packaging, cushioning, and many other applications.
Whether you’re a fabricator looking for the right material for your next job or an OEM seeking the best foam solution for your products, ARPLANK Direct is here to help. From material selection to cost comparison analysis, we are here to provide you with the in-depth information you need to create a cost-effective, high-performance solution for your customers or products.
The shape and properties of our bead foam are what make it unique. Pound for pound, the air within the expanded beads manages impact and compression better than other commodity closed-cell foams. Our EPE molded foam planks are highly customizable and can be cut and shaped using traditional foam fabrication equipment. They are light, durable, and more resilient, which allows them to offer superior cushioning with less material.
Cost-efficient and easy to fabricate, EPE and EPP foam is used for shipping and storing high-value equipment, fragile products, static-sensitive electronics, tools, hardware, and more. These types of high-performance foams are also key components in products across the automotive, military, marine, and sports and leisure industries.

Everything from selecting the best material and density for your application, service temperature ratings, dynamic cushion curves, psi load guidelines, dimensional part tolerances, thermal resistance and so much more can be found in our technical document’s library.
