The 2020 Tokyo Olympics are off to a great start! As we learn from Olympic Athletes, exercising is a key part of living an active and healthy lifestyle. Whether you participate in competitive sports or other athletic activities, you have most likely come in contact with our foam products. As a leading manufacturer of shock-absorption foams for the sports and leisure markets, Armacell’s lightweight foams are designed for safety, longevity and performance in a wide variety of sport and athletic uses. Typical applications include:

Athletic Mats

Armacell's ArmaComp ArmaSport® and OleTex® foams are the right choice for athletic padding for many competitive sports and athletic activities. ArmaSport engineered foams consistently deliver high performance shock absorption and meet all applicable ASTM standards. You can be sure that mats made with ArmaSport or OleTex can take the hit again and again. Typical applications include:

  • Fitness Training

  • Wrestling Mats

Golf Mats

Enjoy golfing? Amateurs and pros alike use golf mats to improve their game. Whether they are practicing long drives outdoors, precise swings in a simulator or short putts in the office, they appreciate a golf mat with a real turf-like feel that emulates the fairways and greens they regularly play. Armacell’s golf mat shock pads offer that “fairway” feel with the right combination of air and elasticity. Our closed-cell foam pads are high-quality, first-run material — not scraps that are pieced together — so they give a consistent feel across the mat. All material is produced in the USA and shipped in roll form. Typical applications include:

  • Commercial and Residential Use
  • Indoor and Outdoor
  • Putting Greens
  • Golf Simulator Pads
  • Driving Range
  • Tee Lines
  • Golf Academy
  • Floating Golf Greens

Synthetic Turf Underlayment

Armacell’s ArmaSport turf underlayment shock pad is a proven turf pad for exceptional sports field performance and consistent playing conditions. Unlike fields that depend on infill material, ArmaSport installations provide protection across 100% of the field – no loss or migration of the cushioning material. Used with or without infill material, a premium foam shock pad provides smooth, flat coverage under synthetic turf field installations, but with no direct contact with the players. This means athletic directors can count on the same amount of shock pad anywhere on the field—all the time—ensuring a safer playing environment for the team. Typical applications include:

  • Football
  • Soccer
  • Field Hockey
  • Lacrosse
  • Baseball
  • Scrimmage Field
  • Indoor Practice Fields
  • Multi-Purpose/Multi-Use Fields
  • Portable Fields
  • Warm-Up Areas
  • Batting Cages

Flotation Devices

We keep you safer while on the water! Another flotation foam solution is Armacell’s ArmaSport elastomeric and OleTex polyolefin foam for personal flotation devices and recreational pool floats. Makers of life vests for water safety can specify materials that meet buoyancy requirements and are UL listed. Many materials can be vinyl-dipped for a durable, water-tight coating or embossed. Other leisure devices like family-sized lake floats, pool noodles and water toys can be made from OleTex, OleCell® and Tundra® polyethylene foam that are waterproof and buoyant, but without a UL listing. Typical applications include:

  • Personal Life Jackets (PFD’s)
  • Waterski Vests and Belts
  • Pool Floats
  • Lake Float Pads
  • Pool Noodles
  • Water Toys and Accessories
  • Boat Bumpers and Fenders
  • Floating Golf Greens

Everywhere you are – at work or play, home or leisure – Armacell is there with you. We want to see you living an active and healthy lifestyle, which is why we have created solutions that conserve energy, reduce noise levels, keep food fresh or add comfort and safety. Our products improve the quality of life for people everywhere.
