Case Study

1. What is an EVA case?

Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) cases are highly engineered and stylish while adding extra durability and protection. EVA is an acronym for Ethylene Vinyl Acetate foam. This process compresses the foam into a semi-rigid shape. You can achieve virtually any semi-rigid shape you can image.


2. Is EVA hard or soft?

Soft, flexible plastic with low-temperature toughness and stress-crack resistance. Flexible EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) is the co-polymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate. It’s an extremely elastic material that can be processed like other thermoplastics.


3. How are Eva cases made?

EVA is a co-polymer, which means it’s created by combining two different plastics- -vinyl acetate and ethylene. The ratio of those plastics in an EVA product is what create its  rigidity. The lower the amount of vinyl acetate in the mix, the more brittle the product.


4. What is Eva hardshell?

EVA cases are one of the most popular travel options available on the market. These cases have a hard-plastic exterior, though they remain flexible and lightweight. SHBC Packaging produces these in either a hard or soft case.


5. What does EVA stand for case?

Okay, but what exactly is EVA? Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate is a co-polymer that works for a multitude of application purposes. Known as “foam rubber”, the thermoforming process of EVA allows us to make cases with hard shells, that are still soft to the touch.


6. Is EVA safe?

EVA is considered to be a safe alternative to PVC, as it doesn’t require plasticize-rs like athletes, and it’s BPA free. However, a few years ago it was found that EVA foam contained form amide. Form amide is used to make the foam soft, but it’s considered to be carcinogenic and a developmental toxin.


7. Is EVA foam UV resistant?

Lightweight, easy to cut and UV resistant, EVA foam has become an essential material for cosplay projects.


8. Is EVA foam fire resistant?

Fire EVA foam manufacturer, black fire EVA foam, white fire EVA foam, up to UL 94V0 standard, can provide fire protection (horizontal combustion test) report, stable quality, uniform thickness, good density, can process any specification.


9. Does EVA foam smell?

Yes, when you first open EVA foam it has a very distinct odor. Your foam is packaged straight from the manufacturer. When you get your foam, open it up and set it outside or in your garage and after about 24- 48 hours the smell will dissipate.


10. Is EVA foam rubber?

EVA is one of the materials popularly known as expanded rubber or foam rubber. EVA foam is used as padding in equipment for various sports such as ski boots, bicycle saddles, hockey pads, boxing and mixed-martial-arts gloves and helmets, wake-board boots, waterski boots, fishing rods and fishing-reel handles.


11. Does EVA absorb water?

Easy-to-Clean: EVA foam is easy to clean and is resistant to chemicals, making it ideal for sweaty gyms or playrooms. Water. Resistant: It is highly weather resilient and has low water absorption, so it can withstand spills, wet feet, and messy pets.


12. Is EVA rubber or plastic?

EVA is the acronym name of a material that stands for Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate EVA is an Elastomer (natural stretchy) polymer that produces materials which are rubber like” in softness and flexibility EVA stands for a plastic which is made by mixing ethylene and vinyl acetate.


13. Is EVA material waterproof?

Vinyl acetate gives the foam its softness and elasticity, so EVA is one of the materials commonly known as expanded rubber or foam rubber. EVA foams characterized by great elasticity, mechanical and UV resistance, low-temperature toughness, and they are waterproof.


14. Is EVA foam mold-able?

Due to its lightweight and easily mold-able nature, EVA foam is ideal for creating helmets, crowns and other headpieces that can be worn for extended periods of time without causing extra neck pain.


15. Does EVA foam off gas?

EVA foam play mats are also commonly touted as being non-toxic. However, EVA foam has been found to off-gas form amide. Currently, there are NO 100% form amide-free EVA foam mats on the market. A company can claim that its mats are form amide-free but it can do so because form amide is only tested to a certain level.


16. Is EVA safe for baby?

Polyurethane, although itself is non-toxic, is flammable and typically contains added flame-retardants like PBDEs that can be detrimental to child development (2,3). EVA, typically advertised as the non-toxic choice often tests positive for form-amide, another toxic chemical.


17. Which is better EVA or polyurethane?

The less dense the EVA, the softer and more comfortable your ride but the faster the foam will break down. More dense EVA foam will offer more support and break down less quickly. Polyurethane is a longer lasting, very supportive mid-sole material mostly found in backpacking and mountaineering boots.


18. Is EVA the same as polyurethane?

It stands for polyurethane. The material is heavier than EVA and is generally less preferred by runners because of its density. That said, PU tends to hold up better than EVA. Over time, the bubbles that make EVA mid-soles so light and bouncy to begin with permanently lose some of their air.


19. Is EVA foam good for insulation?

As a closed cell foam, EVA foam are excellent at heat insulation, moisture resistance, shock absorption, high flexibility and resilience, chemical resistance, buoyancy, also EVA foam can be easily heat formed.


20. Is EVA foam closed cell?

Is EVA Foam Open or Closed Cell? EVA foam, or ethylene-vinyl acetate, is a closed-cell foam made from blended co-polymers of ethylene and vinyl acetate. It has a high level of chemical cross-linking, which results in a semi-rigid product with a fine uniform cell structure.


21. What is the R value of EVA foam?

To calculate the R value of EVA or PE, just divide the thickness by the thermal conductivity value. The value for this product is . 033 degrees per w.m.k. (i.e. 50 mm = 50 divide by 33 = 1.515 R value).


22. What is high density EVA foam used for?

Eva Ultra High -Density Foam:

It can be used for footwear platforms, soundproofing, and flooring. Due to its thickness, the cutting of these foams requires Circular Saw Machine.

Are EVA mats toxic?

EVA play mats

EVA foam is known to give off a toxin called form-amide into the air around it, and therefore these mats often come with a disclaimer stating they contain a toxic substance.


23. Can you be allergic to EVA foam?

Acetaminophen a zine is an emerging allergen identified in ethyl-vinyl acetate foam used in shin guards, shoe soles, and flip-flops. Cases have been reported in young male athletes in Europe and Canada.


24. Is EVA memory foam?

Memory foam is a kind of PU foam with an extra ingredient added to slow its springy return rate, but it does have an unfortunate tendency to freeze solid in cold weather. The most common foam in sneakers is a closed cell foam called EVA, or ethylene vinyl acetate.


25. Is EVA foam high density?

This high quality, ultra high density EVA foam was specifically designed for Cosplay and costuming needs. Many EVA foams out there claim to be “high density” when in fact most of them are low to average densities at around 30 kg/m³ (2 lb/ft³).
