As the leading supplier of high-quality expanded polyethylene (EPE) and expanded polypropylene (EPP) foam planks, ARPLANK Direct has the products and expertise you need to complete, protect, and ship your products without damage.
We have serviced foam fabricators and OEMs throughout North America for more than 15 years, delivering high-performance expanded polyolefin bead foam products that are easy to fabricate and fit into any product shipping or production foam component budget. Our experienced sales, design engineering, and distribution teams are dedicated to helping you find exactly what you need.
You are at the center of everything we do. Our highly specialized team listens to your needs, helping you find the right foam products for your application. We know what we have, you know what you need; it’s our job to make the connection and deliver the best foam planks for the job.
Our polyolefin molded foam planks are used extensively in hundreds of different applications. The autoclave reaction foaming process creates a very uniform cellular and bead-to-bead molded plank structure that protects your products. Fabricated packaging parts cut from our beaded foam planks will manage the input energy, then return to nearly 100% of the part’s original shape.
You get the products you need, when you need them! Our distribution centers in Tennessee, Indiana, Minnesota, and California are optimally located, allowing us to ship plank or sheet products anywhere in North America with high availability.
We have an entire library of technical data that can help you find the right foam for your application. And if you find yourself lost in the data, our friendly and experienced staff are available to pick up the phone and help you find what you need.

Working for a foam fabricator as a Design Engineer, CNC Programmer and setup for production runs, I work with several different materials and one of the best materials is the EPE and EPP products from ARPLANK. The molded plank materials have lower thermal expansion rates than other closed cell foams and can be cut at faster speeds with less tool marks. ARPLANK materials always make repetitive and precise parts.
