Got a pair of thongs? Then you’ve got EVA foam! It’s versatile, easy to work with, durable, and reasonably priced which has made EVA foam wildly popular for a variety of uses.

EVA is used for a whole bunch of stuff like...

Aside from footwear, EVA can be found in sports gear - such as yoga mats, life jackets and gym floor mats - body protection, packaging, cushions, seating, carpet underlay, padding, splints, cervical collars, costuming and crafting needs.

EVA = Cosplay foam

EVA is responsible for creating the weapons, armour, and stage props that help bring the Cosplay universe to life. Just as sturdy as the standard polyethylene foams, only more flexible, EVA is easy to cut, heat, sand, carve, CNC and laser cut because of its closed cell foam material.

 Crafting with EVA

Crafters like EVA’s smooth surface and compact material without cells and air bubbles because "No bubbles = no troubles" when it comes to shaping foam. EVA foam that's smooth on both sides (like Titan AV EVA foam) is the best choice if you're looking to layer foam.

The creative possibilities of EVA are endless as this YouTuber demonstrates using 2mm EVA foam to make sushi.

Boaters love EVA

If you’ve got a boat, be it a yacht, dinghy or kayak, EVA is great for decking and upholstering your boat seating thanks to its minimal water absorption (yes it floats!) and compression recovery. A very useful nautical material, EVA foam can be used to reduce damage as boat dock fenders.

 Protect your gear with EVA

Lightweight & capable of absorbing hard impacts, EVA foam is commonly used as padding inside road cases to safely transport your valuable equipment.
