Smithers Foams is a division of the Smithers Oasis Company. We specialize in different and custom applications for foam.
Smithers phenolic foam is an expanded foam with engineered final properties. The foam is available with closed or open cells for your custom applications. Smithers phenolic foam can be molded into different shapes and sizes with ordinary working tools. Our foam is self-extinguishing and exhibits fire retardant properties. The material is excellent as a thermal insulation foam and capable of meeting international building regulation requirements. One of the engineered properties we change to meet different custom applications is the strength to density ratio. Our foam is impressionable so it can be used for medical applications. The foam can be used as a filter in carbon molecular sieve manufacturing once it has been carbonized. The foam can be designed to be lightweight and super absorbent, leaving less material to remove and dispose. The foam can be made into a dense material and used in milling, molding, and prototyping applications.
Different uses of Smithers Foams are: absorbent foam, floral foam, agricultural foam, medical impression foam, prop foam, sculpting foam, temperature control packaging foam, packaging foam, material handling foam, craft, and custom foam.
