Tri State Foam offers shape-molded packaging as well as fabricated packaging. In the shape-molding process, expanded polystyrene beads are blown into a mold cavity where they further expand and fuse to form the exact shape of the mold. Shape-molding is ideal when large, repetitive quantities are required. We offer engineered design assistance, as well as prototype sampling, in developing the optimum packaging solution to meet the needs of our customers.
Tri State also offers the option of molding with Arcel resins, which provide a greater balance of flexibility and strength. The resiliency of Arcel shape molded products allow for puncture resistance and reusable packaging.
