Industry Leading Foam Extrusion

 

We are an industry leader in foam extrusion. Whether you’re trying to achieve a specific product density or insulation characteristic, Davis-Standard foam extrusion capabilities make it possible. Our turnkey foam solutions are backed by proven technology and excellent results, enabling us to excel in food packaging (link to industry page), construction (link to industry page) and consumer products (link to industry page) industries.

 

Davis-Standard’s single and twin-screw tandem foam lines, and in-line foam technology are recognized industry leaders—thanks to high output processing of PE, PS and PP foam sheet. Not only do we offer the highest industry foam outputs per tandem line size, our systems allow for direct processing of foam flake, removing the need for pelletizing.
