SPECIAL FOAM SIZES AND CUTS

Please contact us if you have a need for a custom cut foam piece that our stock foam sheets will not fit. In most cases, your custom orders can be completed in one to three working days. Large or complex orders could take up to five days.

WARNING: URETHANE FOAM IS FLAMMABLE!

Do not expose urethane foam to open flames, or any other direct or indirect high temperature ignition sources, such as burning operations, welding, burning cigarettes, space heaters, or naked lights. Once ignited, urethane foam will burn rapidly, releasing great heat and consuming oxygen at a high rate. In any enclosed space the resulting deficiency of oxygen will present a danger of suffocation to the occupants. Hazardous gases released by the burning foam can be incapacitating or fatal to human being if inhaled in sufficient quantities. No one component by itself passes CAL 133.

  
Please open foam orders immediately!! Leaving the foam wrapped up may have adverse effects and cause shrinkage.
