offers our customers the ability to purchase our
cases with a variety of foam options ranging for the
standard pick ‘n pluck foam to plush divider systems
to custom foam inserts. The following are some of
the available foam configurations and types of foam.
- Pluck Foam is sheets of cubed cut foam cut to
fit the Ameripack case. The customer can then
remove the squares to fit their product.
Learn more about Pluck Foam below.
- Custom Foam is also available
in any type of foam. Ameripack will work from a
client’s mechanical drawings or product samples to
construct a custom foam insert. Ameripack also
determines the best type of foam, and the cell
size that will be most effective to protect your
product). A die is created and stored so that
customers can repeat their case order without any
die charges. Please contact us for more information.

- Divider systems are available in some of our
cases, and can be quickly adjusted for a variety
Types of Foam
Most well known polymers used to make foams.
Polyurethane foam has an elastic cell structure
which provides a wide range of performance
This is an open cell flexible polyurethane foam
ranging in density from 1.5# to 6#. It is also
available in anti-static formulations.
This is a low cost, highly resilient open cell foam
that is available in densities ranging from 1#
to1.8#. It is also available in anti-static
This is a closed cell foam (the cell walls are not
interconnected, so the foam will not absorb water or
moisture). The 3 most commonly used foam
polyethylene's are: 1.5# polyethylene, 1.7#
polyethylene, and 2.2# polyethylene. These are the
lowest density polyethylene's and our standard color
for them is black, though they are available in
other colors and higher densities (up to 12# ).
Polyethylene is very common for case inserts because
it is rugged and has a very attractive appearance.
All densities are also available in anti-stat
formulations. These are closed cell foams.
Crosslink foams have a large variety of
colors available, a soft touch feel, and other
attributes that make it a very attractive material
to use for a case insert. Cross-link foams are
usually a closed cell foam.
