At Parotec our extensive array of Foam Engineering facilities always ensures the highest quality service.
Our modern CNC routing machinery cut various grades of foam. Capable of cutting the most complex of product shapes, the CNC machinery can deliver precision and repeatability, as well as speed of production and cost effectiveness. A variety of foam types are used depending on the size and weight of the items it will contain. Utilising the latest CNC technology, our large machines enable us to route multiple units. Also, due to the elimination of tooling costs, the process can create one-off routed foam inserts as effectively.
For larger volume orders, the process of Die Cutting allows foam to be cut quickly and efficiently by removing or shearing material. Each design would require a new tool to be used.
Water jet cutting can be used to cut a variety of materials by use of extremely high pressure water jets. Depending on the material needing to be cut or accuracy needed in the cutting process, Parotec are able to offer this as a service to our customers
Foam Design System
The Parotec Foam Design System (FDS) uses cutting edge technology to allow foam inserts to be designed and configured using an online graphical editor. By using this technology Parotec are able to supply our customers with images of how their finished foam will look along with an accurate quote. Once this design has been created it is permanently saved which allows further orders or edits to be quickly completed.

Expanded Polyethylene is a lightweight, closed cell foam most commonly used in packaging, for impact and shock absorption, vibration dampening, and surface protection. It is easily shaped, formed and cut to size. EPE is dust-free, and non abrasive.
Excellent heat insulator
Durable and high resilience
Mildew, bacteria and rot resistance
Resistance to wear and tear
Expanded Polyurethane is a softer, open-cell type of foam that is made in varying degrees of firmness. Because the cells are open and not cross-linked, air can flow throughout the foam just like water can flow throughout a sponge. Expanded Polyurethane can provide more cost-effective, form-fitting cushioning that uniquely and securely protects items that need to stay safely in place during transit.
Lightweight for buoyancy uses
We always have a wide range of foam types and colours available to us off the shelf, we can also source specialised types of foam if required, giving you a huge choice.
Most applications will require Expanded Polyethylene foam, which is available to us in a wide range of vivid, attractive colours, in addition to Black. We stock a large number of different colour foams as standard, however we can obtain more special colours upon request. Please contact us to find out more.
