Flotation

Life Jacket Personal FlotationFoam materials for flotation devices, aquatic safety, and recreation.

Manufacturers of flotation devices depend on suppliers for flotation foams that meet tough industry standards.

Armacell’s Component Foam Division provides ArmaSport® elastomeric and polyolefin foam for personal flotation devices and pool floats. Makers of life vests for water safety can find materials that meet buoyancy requirements and are UL listed. Other leisure devices like pool floats and toys can be made from materials that are buoyant, but without UL listing. All materials can be vinyl-dipped for a durable, water-tight coating.
