Foam for Aerospace & Autosport
Foam Engineers has recently been working closely with major manufacturers and companies operating in the civil and military airline and aerospace industry. The specialised foam products we supply are for the UK market and can also be export markets too including Europe and North America.
The company is unique in being able to offer the combination of high specification foam types, alongside complex manufacturing and shaping technologies, backed up by quality assurance systems which provide in depth analysis, monitoring and traceability.
Foam Engineers is now an approved supplier to Airbus. The company is serious about quality and the company was one of the first UK technical foam fabricators to recognise the importance of independent quality assurance accreditation and gained ISO accreditation in 1992 (then BS5750 Part2). The advantage of having adopted the accreditation system for nearly 20 years means that the system has matured sufficiently for the company to focus on each customer’s specific quality requirements.
We provide a rapid product development facility and can engineer complex shapes from our range of both closed cell polyethylene foam and polyurethane foam.
Foam Engineers offers ground up advice where required or can work with your agreed specification requirements. If you are thinking of using a flexible foam in your new product design, we are happy to explore your ideas with you and offer free impartial advice with no strings attached. Once a design concept has been agreed we have engineers available to manufacture initial prototypes which can be tested and approved before you commit to any tooling and production runs.
The types of products we supply to the Aerospace and Autosport sectors include; explosion suppressant foam (ESF), baffling and anti-surge foam for fuel tanks, performance protective packaging, cushioning, sealing and gasket foams, protective blocking components, safety products, body protectors and many other specialised foam components.
The types of foams we supply includes: polyurethane foam, reticulated foam, open cell foam, Zotefoams® Plastazote, high density closed cell HDPE foam, visco elastic memory foam and flame retardant foam.
At Foam Engineers we understand the specialised nature of enquiries from the Aerospace and Autosport Industry and the requirement to work closely and confidentially with our clients. We are unique in being able to offer a wide range of aerospace approved materials which we source directly from the manufacturers based in UK, Europe and North America.
We are serious about our role as your business partner and foam supplier, and will often include, in addition to our ISO accreditation, any industry specific quality protocols required to ensure your exacting standards are met.
